: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 have no real insight on this one, but is it possible that he's basking and swimming when you're not around? My baby took a while to get used to me, and I was concerned for quite some time that he wasn't basking, just because I never caught him doing it! After some time, he got used to me, and now even eats out of my hand. Have you picked a name for your little guy yet?
