:Please remember the the room air should be around 68-70 degrees.
:Even if the water is warm and you have a basking area your
:baby will develop a respiratory infection if kept in 60 degree
:room temp. The water temp should be a few degrees cooler than
:the ambient room temp. Think about them in the wild. The water
:is ALWAYS cooler than air temp. I do not mean to say if your
:room temp is 70 to keep your water at 68. For instance, my
:turtles ambient room temp is 70-74 degrees. There water temp
:fluctuates with the room temp. Then of course they have the
:basking area which is about 85 degrees. I have had them many
:years and they are active and always ready to eat. Never had
:any health issues either.

:Hope this helps :)

Thanks so much. I got a heater but I need to add a heat lamp. I hope I didn't make the little guy sick
