Taking care of your turtle's overall health.

Hello every one ,
i am new here, also new on having turtle as pet. around 2 months ago i bought my turtles they were on a whim and when i bought they they were of around 1 inch shell.

I am posting the picture of my turtle, they seem to be healthy to me but i want to know if they actually are healthy . but my tank size is fairly small for them its around 15 gallon tank.

1 of the turtle ( Porthos )dose not eat anything except one kind of food pellet , i tried different vegetables , dried shrimps ( try to get earth worms ) . and it ear fairly less then other 2.
another turtle ( Aramis ) eat fair amount and seems to be most healthy to me .
And the biggest of them is Athos , it eats like nothing else matter in the world and it seems kinda fat to me and while i feed them in different containers it dose not leave its poop as other 2 does in the feeding container .

Welcome to the forum! I think they can all use fewer pellets but look good overall. It's normal for hatchlings to be more interested in live prey and pellets/treats. As for pooping in a feeding container, that behavior varies but 2 out of 3 is pretty good :D
