Someone please help, i have a sickly painted turtle.
About 6 months ago or so, i purchased 2 painted turtles off of a mutual friend. both were young babies at the time i picked them up, and now they've grown to about 2" in length and width. Unfortunately Major Tom hasn't been himself the past week or so. He has become very lethargic, rarely eats, and his eyes look swollen and it's almost a burden to try an open them as wide as he can. The other turtle, Ziggy Stardust, is doing well though. I'm not too sure what to do for little Major Tom. The only thing i can think of is purchasing one of those UVB lights. Or maybe a heater for the tank? I'm not sure, but I do need help and advice, so if anyone out there can enlighten me, i would greatly appreciate it.
