Lacy,

If you click on 'free photo gallery' at the top of this page you can run searches for keywords like 'snap' or 'turtle tank' which likely brings up a few enclosure pics. Minnows are probably better than goldfish. The best water temp is probably 75-78(F).

:Hi
:My common snapper hatched about 4 1/2 months ago.
:I have him in a 20 gallon aquarium with a few fish (and a cool snail to eat the algea that isn't there...) I have a top fin 20 filter, a top fin tank heater (I have it at about 72/75F too cold? too hot? just right?) some aquatic plants and river rock on the bottom. I have a reptisun 5.0 UVB light on him. He has a spot where he can easily get out of the water and bask, although he's never done it.
:Does all this sound okay? Do I need to change/add anything?
:I am feeding him baby reptomin, little gold fish, little pinches of beef heart, and small crickets. Is all this okay? I just started giving him fish about a month ago. I read on here that gold fish aren't the best thing by themselves, but with the other things I'm feeding are they okay? Are minnows better? What should I get?
:He is growing SO fast! I used to feed him the reptomin w/ my fingers, but he started snapping at my fingers when ever he saw them and I don't think that would work out too well when he's bigger!!
:I would love to see pictures of the indoor setups for snappers. Thank you to all who reply.
