I can't, but they are very cute. My daughter wanted a turtle for a pet, it got the size of a dinner plate! I couldn't believe it. Lol

Yea. They apparently grow based on their habitat. Mines a crowded 10 gallon so they shouldn't grow two fast or to big soon.

Males have longer tails and claws. Females have shorter claws and shorter tails.

Turtles nor any animal grows to the size of its habitat. It will be stunted but it's internal organs will keep growing leading to a slow and painful death. If I understand correctly you have two red eared sliders in a ten gallon. That is not near enough. They need a 40 gallon breeder at a minnimum.

Well I don't have the money to get a brand new setup nor the place to put it. When they get to bigger then they r now. I'll have to find someone to either buy them or give me a tank.

If you can get a pick of their tail and hands I can identify sex.

Sorry if I came across as rude or mean spirited. I just wanted to let you know that what you have now is not a good permanent home for your turtles.
