Ugh. I haven’t been in the lab for a few weeks and it appears that NO ONE has taken care of the turtles.
Super pissed right now, esp. since they get suboptimal care at best… but I honestly don’t think anyone is taking care of them…. and I know little to nothing about turtle care. (I want to pour water in his tank, but I don’t know if I need to condition it first, and the waters cold)
I don’t want pet turtles, but I’m about to the point where I’m going to take them all.
By the way, that’s a 6" carapace Red eared slider with one inch of water in a ten gallon tank with an old UVB light that never turns off who occasionally gets about twenty goldfish thrown in with him.
Maddest about the native pond turtles who are getting crappy care. They’re a species of special concern and ours get no heat bulb or UVB.
