I have a 2 months old red ear slider which is eating only and only shrimps and nothing else! I've tried feeding a slice of banana it ate a small piece of it and started rejecting it :( I read that pellets are important for them and shrimps must be given as a treat. I am trying the tough love diet i havent gave him anything for the past 3 days and still not eating its pellets! He is trying to eat the rocks (they're not small) and still rejecting the pellets :roll:

Try mixing the pellets with the shrimp or dip the pellets into some water from canned tuna. If you have a separate feeding container, you may want to use it as it will foul up the water quicker.

If he's was previously eating everyday, I would keep with the tough love for a few more days.
