I got 3 red eared sliders 2 are just babys. the other I saved from a reptile store that somebody left at the door step over night. my question is i've had this one for a few days he's in his own tank its about 4 inches and I haven't seen him bask. I got a medium size turle dock should I get a bigger dock or just wait? The two hatchlings have no problem basking there doing great.
