Thats super cool. Hows the filtration? Do you have to change a prefilter pretty often? It seems like you've got a great naturalistic environment there.
17 gms! He seems so tiny to hibernate! I'd be petrified!
Little text update not much to say and see. He has not lost weight so far. Hes inactive but responds to the touch of his feet.
12 januar: 17 grams
I post the Next update in March when he is finished with his winter sleep and again in his outside tub.
I would say 50% once a week or every other week since torts poo a lot. Or you could do the 20% and "vaccum" the bottom to clean up wasteYes thank u. I have read about this recently and will change next season to only 20% water changes per 2 weeks and occasionally topping of the water that evaporated.
Spot him? I'm lucky to find the bathroom in the middle of the night.......lol
He's a really cool looking turtle and very healthy appearing too!
If I were hunting turtles, I'd swoop in on him @ right/center bottom....
Great habitat.....you've got a really nice balance. What temp is the water?
Beautiful. I hope to get a group.of these guys someday and build a big bog.Hey everyone!
