General Care Discussion :: Help! I've been overfeeding my turtles!

Taking care of your turtle's overall health.

I bought 2 YBS in the middle of January. They were roughly the size of a dollar coin. Without knowing, I have been overfeeding them severely (about 3 or 4 times the recomended size of their head feeding). I've been doing this for 2 months, until i came across a yputube video explaing the amounts that should be fed. So i looked around a bit and realized that my turtles are overweight and that the have overfeeding pyramiding and they've grown abput twice their aize in 2 months. Please help me ease my mind that they'll be ok as long as I correct this issue. Any tips to help them will be greatly appriciated. The shell looks like they have 3 little spikes on it and its not smooth, but a bit raised. Please help. Thank you.

Any pictures? They should be fine but try to limit the amount to maybe 2/3 of head-size.
