Just wanted to say hello and thank you for allowing me to join the forum. I have 7 turtles that are personal pets as well as the turtles in the sanctuary/rescue I operate which has between 5 to 22 turtles depending on how quickly they are adopted into new homes or sometimes if suitable they go to one of my ponds. My personal 7 turtles are 3 RES males named Heckle, Jeckle & Alfonso while the 2 female RES are named Shelly & Nelly. The other two turtles are a male Mississippi Map named Atlas & a painted turtle named Raphael. I work as a web designer and Linux op system specialist while taking care of the turtles in the spare time. The sanctuary is on my property and since I have my office on location it makes balancing between running my business and the turtles care easy. I look forward to the forum and if anyone has any questions or I left any info out feel free to ask.

I will upload the album of the photos of the sanctuary and also some images of the new pond I am working on right now to increase the living space for the turtles. Right now it is 3 ponds and 12 indoor tanks so the new pond will increase it to 4 ponds. Size of ponds are 3,200 gallon, 1,050 gallon and 800 gallon. The new one I am building is going to be approx 10,000 gallons.
