Growing baby. I'd feed 5 at a time, if she's hunting for more, 5 more. She could probably take 10-20 of those. Pretty small size. They can eat veggies too.

Are you forgetting the calcium she needs to rebuild her shell?

She needs a cuttle bone in there all the time. Real cuttle bone. If she has shell rot she needs a lot of calcium.

She also needs fresh greens.

If this is a female redear they are a lot more jumpy than the males.

All my females still take to the water when they see me and my males stay put.

Ive had them from hatchling. Females are just more nervous than males.

I have the natural cuttlebone and she bites at it alot, and i put red leaf lettuce in the tank at least 3 times a week. She isnt as scared of us then when we got her, she likes to go up to the edge of the glass and she watches us.

Oops the basking temp was actually a bit over 100 degrees, i got the better thermometer, i think its just not good at air temp. How do i lower basking spot temp without changing bulbs, cause thet are expensive and i think it is too late to replace it.

you are better at a 76 f water temp max. 80 f for basking no higher than 85.

Your turtle is inside where you have control over his living quarters.

My turtles are all out side they can adjust them selves to what they need.

You may have to put your light up higher. Turtles do get heat stroke and cook.

Water temp over 76f is to hot for a redear.
