recently got two juvenile res, having them for 2 weeks now. the 2 inch one eat alot, when i throw in 8 pellets, he would eat 7 while the other only gets 1 to eat. however he doesnt bask too much.
the other one, 1.5 inch, basks alot, almost 10 hrs a day, but doesnt really seem interested in food. is it all due to personality? or does he/she need more time

I'd separate them while they eat. There's always one turtle who outcompetes the other, so you need to do your part and make sure they each get their fair share and that the other is not getting too much.
