My turtle

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v7...s/139_3968.jpg

I was cashin out a lady with a 30 gallon tank kit when this guy holding a box comes upto the counter, hands me the box, says "hes sick of it" and leaves the store. I open the box to find a red ear slider with Vitamin A deficiency (big bug eyes and peeling scutes), a slightly deformed shell, and little flecks of neon rainbow colored gravel embedded in the back of his shell. This was back in june 2005. Its taken a lot of work, eye swelling came down, scutes stopped peeling, i got the gravel flecks off and now the turtle is doing alot better. When i get some extra money hopefully in the next 3 or 4 weeks, im gonna buy him a 30 gallon turtle tank. But i would still like to find a better home for the turtle. I cant really afford a 75 gallon tank for it.
