:Hello. Question for Steve or any one else that can answer. What kind of minerals and vitamins should I be giving him? Is it some thing I should be putting in his water or is it some thing he should be eating? I use natural spring water for his tank. So he's not getting cholorine water from the faucet. Any ways Sk8tr009 well both of us are in the same situation. We have both gotten two turtles from Troy and they look pretty much the same and are the same size. Also they were both very thin. Are you feeding yours any thing besides fish? I just bought some shiners today and mine ate up 7 with in ten minutes time. Any ways thanks for you answers.
