Hi all, I have had Wrinkles for about a year and 1/2 now and have had no problems. I have him in a 40 gal breeder tank( shorter for more ground space) but anyways, i was wondering about natural sunlight and what not. I do not have a florecsent bulb over him but only have a basking bulb. This bulb only provides UVB. He has been healthy and I feed him one goldfish per day(for stimulation and exercise), about 20 turtle pellets(for nutrition) and 6 large dusted crix about every other day or so(for vitamins and calcium). he seems to be pretty healthy but was just wondering if the lighting is fine and what not. Also, does anyone know how to clean their tank very well( like to get the glass as clear as possible) One more thing, does anyone know a good site for these guys, ever since I have gotten her I haven't been able to find any info. Thanks for your help everyone!
