hey guys, in new to the forum and fairly new to turtle keeping. I currently have two small red eared sliders that I adopted so I have been browsing the information on this forum so I decided I may as well go ahead and become a member. the two turtles are still small so I have them housed in a 40 gallon breeder tank with an overflow going to a 20 gallon tank I am attempting to plant to reduce nitrates and grow food for the turtles. any advice or criticism is welcome. thanks for the add

They look good but this will be a good time to cut back on their pellets/protein and introduce veggies. Their seams are thick, meaning they are growing too fast.

Ok thanks for the advice, should I still feed them daily or should I start feeding every other day?

You can do either. If everyday, it's gotta be a smaller amount but you can use veggies along with it.
