my turtle seems to be having a little runny nose and it will just float on the water and sleep whenever i put it in the water, it seems to be "dead". My other one will not eat for 3 days and only eat salmon! :( BAD!!!!!!! it has some side effects of sleeping when it's not suppose to now, it doesn't do that as often as the other one!

Sorry to hear it but they should be separated regardless. They don't always adapt quickly or at a similar rate, and should be carefully observed when first acquired.

True.................... i did separate them today and used some human medicine, i think it's because of the UVB and UVA problem because my friend has a turtle for over 5 years and she never used UVB nor UVA light and it's healthy, is that good or bad?

UVB is important but there are ways around it. It's deficiency would not cause a rapid illness.

I'm sorry to hear it. Were you able to take it to a vet? What exactly do you mean falling apart?

I really don't know of a way to cure them without a vet. Maybe at a veterinary school or an experienced rescue.
