Hi Guys! Just wanted to ask if you guys can help me out with my research. :roll:
My research title is "A Comparative Study on the Effect of Different Commercial Diets On the Growth Rate of Red Eared Slider Turtles." :mrgreen:

I will be comparing different commercial diets of RES Turtles and do you guys have any suggestion of what commercial diets I should us? I made this research because I want to be able to help Turtle owners that can unfortunately, only feed Commercial Diets. I thought about using Reptomin and Mazuri. I need at least two more to add in the comparison. Also, do you guys know any related research about my research? It would really be a great help if you guys can suggest anything. :D

Thanks! :lol:

Omega one dusted with calcium is what I feed. I coat them with the calcium. I agree with your choice of Reptomin just because a lot of people use it but there are many better options.

I don't know of any similar research. This is a good page to just review and get an idea of what people are using:
