Taking care of your turtle's overall health.

my turtle's been in a cycle of climbing up his basking area, sitting there for a few seconds, and diving into the water. He'll swim around a little bit and repeat the cycle. Should i be worried?

I'll keep an eye out for other symptoms but I would not worry on that behavior alone. Mine do that sometimes, but not for long periods.
