Hi,

Not sure if I should ask this here or under a health topic, but I fed my res turtles raspberries for about a week; two turtles, each got one. Now a week or so later I notice all these pinkish hard seeds in their tank. Could this just be them still pooping out the seeds or something with their health? It seems kinda obvious, but I don't want to overlook it.


Thanks!

I think it's just them pooping it out (and then possibly eating them again). They should be a rare treat.

Agreed with what Steve has stated here.

Okay, great! Thanks! I'm not feeding them raspberries anymore, aside from having a slight worry, they make their tank super dirty because the filter doesn't pick the seeds up. :mrgreen:
