If someone made them for me, and sold them to me in bulk...I'd buy it. xD or consider it. As long as the ingredients are all natural.

Haha Okay, I'll keep my eyes open for retailers. Don't worry, you'll find a way to get your girls eating right. It just takes a little work, and a lot of love. It sounds like you've got it in you for plenty of both.

Thanks. I already solved one problem. Now is just the other.

The tuna method is a good way to start. I want to add that while carrots are good for RES in small "installments", they shouldn't be eating it every day or even every week. It's possible to build up toxic levels of Vitamin A in their systems.

Red leaf lettuce and dandelion greens are excellent.

Where do I get dandelion greens from? Certainly not from my pesticide ridden house right..?

No. Most grocery stores have them in the fresh vegetable section. They'll be in the same area as the heads of lettuce.

Anything for them to be honest. I was thinking of building a pond outside that I could keep them in the summer time and let aquatic plants grow.

That would be awesome! You'd just need to make sure that nothing could get to the turtles, think raccoons, possums, (possibly) birds of prey, and any types of snakes that might be in the area. I could be crazy, but snakes + turtles sounds bad to me. Also, that the turtles couldn't get out and wander off.
Do you have a UVA/UVB bulb for their tank inside?
