New to the turtle world...our RES slider hatchling graced us with his/her presence after a large rain storm a little over 3 weeks ago. Our kids have really enjoyed having a turtle.

I guess my biggest issue is feeding...how much and how often. So many different websites and groups say different things. He loves pellets. Bought him some freeze dried mill worms not too thrilled with those but loves crickets. Finally got him to eat some leafy lettuce. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Welcome to the forum! Pellets are a staple, stick with a good brand like Mazuri or Omega One. How much... check redearslider.com/pellets.html though I do recommend feeding a bit less that what I've previously wrote.
