Okay. Ray is under the veiw that turtles needs some rocks adn some water and that is it. He never realized how much they needed. A Box Turtle is more likely what we will go with, but I think it will be best if we wait until we move out.
I thought about starting with a small tank set up then moving to something bigger when we move in March, but I'd rather wait. let us get settled into our house, and set up a kick *ss turtle enviroment. Plus with planning a wedding and moving in the next 7 months, I don't want to take on another pet. because although it would be HIS turtle, iI know I will be doing the research, care and maintence.
What size tank should we be looking for? Can I find box turtles as babies(I mean smalllike the one I saw at Conneaut)? Are turtles social animals, like should I get 2 for their happiness?(Is that a dumb question)
Plus next summer, we are hoping to have a yard-and a little pond, would I be able to take my turtle out?
I hope my questions aren't dumb. Maybe I will get ray the tank, and lights or something for Christmas.
Red Eared sliders are concidered docile, I a m looking at them. This one site says 2 adults could go in a 20 galloon aquarium? Do you think they are just saying that to get you buy them and they'd be unhappy?
