Talking New rescue! meet Corco *RBSN

I'm adopting a Red Bellied Short Necked turtle from NL Small Rescue...this is the FiRST time I ever adopted a RBSN,up til now,I only kept red ear sliders...but i'm a fan of all turtles!
There's a great chance i'll have this little guy this week.His name is Corco...no idea what it means/came from...but I kept pets names,so i'll be keeping it!
As you can see the turtle is in great health,tho a bit shy!
As you can also see,it's being kept in a 20 gallon...very very much too small,so when I get extra money,this is gonna change!

I also have issues with turtles having rocks other than river rocks in their tank,...I know with RES it's a no no...& from what I read it's a no no for RBSN as well...so that's also gotta go!

hehe my boyfriend's reaction was more like : "thats a turtle? how come it don't look like your other 2?"

My reaction: "he's N0T a red ear slider".

His reaction: "oh,i see....." & then he just asked what's for lunch
