Default Re: my terrapin needs help

Hi eliya... when you say terrapin, what is the exact species that you are referring to?
At this point I'm assuming they are Red-Eared Slider Turtles (Chrysemis scripta elegans). Now, how old are these turtles? What is their tank like? With the slider turtles, a lot of people get misinformed about their care. These turtles do need special care and one can't just put them in tanks, feed them and expect them to be healthy and live a long life.
I suggest you google up a care sheet for them and start from there...
