Hello everyone!

My name is Jonathan I'm 24 and currently seeking some turtle wisdom'. I recently "rescued" two turtles from the evil hands of my mother.. Kidding. My little sisters were given these two baby turtles but they're careless and don't know and can't begin to afford what turtles really need therefore I took on the task, since they're too busy with technology and won't bother taking care of them I am going to be their momma'.

So here's my Intel I guess.
I'm just wanting to know what condition these turtles are and if I should seek a vet (if you see anything wronc).

For now I have a small tank, 10 gallon, turtles don't seem unhappy they have some room to swim and a basking dock I got on Amazon with their light.

I've followed a lot of the advice found on myturtlecam and have ordered a UVB light (which is what I think is wrong with the oldest turtle's shell)

I'll be pleading your awesome advice and hope I can be a part of your team in helping newbies such as myself with their turtles.

Thank you in advance for having such a great and helpful site.

P.s. Steve :) I' believe you're the owner! Can't wait to seek your advice as well!
