Before the board was moved I posted that we got one of our children a couple of Red Eared Slider
hatchlings that she named Broccoli and Sweet Potato.
Well, I have a question about them and I hope someone can shead some light on this. The carapace on both turtles is turning white. This just started in the last three days.
I looked at pictures of shell rot and it doesn't look like that and it isn't raised or anything like shell rot but I am washing them with Betadine anyway, but not scraping anything since I don't know what is going on.
Otherwise they are acting normal (for them). Very active, the eat like horses (Broccoli will even beg for food).
Diet consists of turtle pellets (just started coating them in reptical), turtle treat (krill, they won't eat the flys in it) a couple times a day, and fresh veggies (they like broccoli and kale, so far those are the only two veggies we have been able to get them to eat). As I said, they are hatchlings so most food is just to big for them to eat yet.
