:i'm frustrated with my one turtle. He won't leave that darn corner. He just sits there ALL the time, only moving when I take him out to fed him. He doesn't bask at all. I moved the filter today so that he couldn't go in the corner and he just went next to the filter as close to the corner as he could get. Should i take him out and make him bask? Should i take out the plants in that corner so he can't hide in them? He seems healthy other than this. He doesn't have any drainage from his nose, eyes or mouth. He eats. He just doesn't swim or bask whe in the tank. Doees anyone else have this going on?!?? Should i make him bask?
i suggest you move the plants to another corner, and see if he goes to them. If he does, he just likes the cover. All turtles get scared sometimes..... do you have anything that could be scaring them? when i first fed my baby turts live crickets (which was their FIRST live food since i had bought them) they were terrified for about a day or 2. BUT when they got used to them, they came back out. i say just move the plants and observe. Good luck! kevin
