    My dream tort, so cute. You're going to want to get rid of that water dish tho and use a Tera cotta saucer instead or something similar :)

    Yeah seems to be walking around fine if any of them are sticking up or in big pieces I tend to remove them or flatten the surface. Yeah the first day I didnt have a tea strainer for the calcium powder so it went on a little heavy but ive invested in one since so its ok now and not so visible. I have a low depth jar lid for water at the moment which is what I was recommended to use by the breeder and the other dish is full all the time just incase she wants to venture into it for a dip for extra rehydration although she hasnt yet

    Re: RE: My indian star

    Agree! Just get a shallow terra cotta plant saucer. The one you have is dangerous. She could tip and drown! Beautiful star!

    Forgot to mention that you should give her plenty of warm sprays.
