: in the pet store the guy told me that ss don't bask but then some people tell me they do and i don't have any baking rocks or any thing in my tank do they really bask if they do the bask like red ear slider or it's weird when they bask
In my experience of just one softy: she basked when very young and then stopped. After a few months of no basking I removed the basking area - that was 20 years ago and she's still going strong.
I suggest you give your softy a basking space and observe the behaviour.
