In my opinion, snappers like slow moving prey. There is more of a chance for your turtle to catch one, if there is a large school. the more he eats, the less chance he has to catch them. I doubt the turtle is being stressed, but I may be wrong. Try killing the fish first, then dropping them in one by one. I used to collect wild bridle shiners for my 8 year old common snapper. These occured naturally where he was collected. I collected large batches and killed them first...heres a tip(you may not want to read any further if you oppose killing prey)..fill a sink or pot full of scalding hot water, and dump the fish in..they will die instantly, now you can just pop them into the water for your turtle to enjoy.
