Both of my turtles were saved from unhealthy environments. Lizzy (smaller one) was in PetSmart with no basking area, with an African side neck turtle and only fed feeder fish. Drizzy (fat one) was over fed, with many other turtles and lots of shell rot. I have set up the tank and lizzy seems to be lazy. We took her to a vet which she was unsure of what it could be. She gave us baytril and stuff for shell rot. She seems to be staying towards the top with her legs tucked in and sometimes sleeping. It's worrying me. Drizzy is over weight and I've been feeding her lettuce.
