Hi guys, Im new to the forum and I wanted to know how much to feed my RES who's about 4 to 5 inches big? My girlfriend wants to restrict its diet to about 1 stick of Reptomin each day but Im opposed to it as I think it is still young.

Hi, is your turtle a male or female? 1 stick is too little. Look over redearslider.com/pellets.html for a guideline. I would actually use a little less as well than what is recommended.
