I've had my red eared slider for seven months now and has never had a problem eating but I have just recently moved my turtle in my room it's been a little over a month since he has been in my room and the first two or three weeks he was eating normally but the last two almost three weeks he hasn't eaten anything at all and just this week I changed the food I was feeding him to see if he'd eat and I also bought some bacterial fix for the water and it says to do it for seven days then change 25% of the water and do it again if necessary I just don't know what to do when I would shake the bottle in front of the tank he would swim anxiously towards it but now recently in the past few weeks he has been sleeping a lot but he still basks and he swims occasionally but he won't eat at all.

I don't have any rocks at the bottom it's just plain but I have the right size filter for my 20 gallon tank the water temp is 75 degrees and I'm not really sure about the basking area and I also have a water heater
