:He might not be as active because of his size and age, but three-toeds I have found to be much less active then my ornates. Ornates are usually busy turtles and will stay above the surface, while three-toeds usually aren't as active and tend to hide more.

This is what I was wondering. He's pretty small, not yet a yearling. The aquarium thing isn't exactly an aquarium thing though . . . It's a blind tank only open on the front. I try not to keep any of my animals in tanks where I have to reach down over them or where they can be viewed all around. I do wildlife rehab on all kinds of critters and found they stay calmer that way. He's only inside because he wasn't eating when I got him and he was so tiny that we didn't put him out in our other pen but I was wanting to put him out when the weather warmed enough. Just wanted to make sure he wasn't acting ill before I did so.
thanks,
erin
