Can i feed my turtle iceberg for now?I only have iceberg lettuce in the fridge....Don't ask me why XD :lol:

i know its mostly water and low in nutrition but is it harmful to the turtle if consumed daily?Don't worry about pellets.I'll feed them every other day. :cry: :?:

And does anyone know why my turtle's poop is loose and not solid?

Yes you can use it but I wouldn't use too much.

As you mentioned, it's not very nutritious. For the loose stool, maybe you've been feeding too much lettuce?

I used to give them this turtle food provided by the pet store.They don't state any brand there.But few days ago i bought omega one pellet which i think one of the best turtle food out there?He only eat pellet,carrot and blueberries before.So,i'm trying to introduce lettuce to him.He is around 4 inch.

Anyways,yesterday i went to the market and found this lettuce named "Red and green coral" and i'm not sure whether it is the same as red and green leaf lettuce (I know nothing about veggies)..i'm not sure if this will help : https://www.lovemysalad.com/salapedia/l ... al-lettuce

It looks like this:

Yes, Omega One is well regarded. That looks like red-leaf, but I don't think it's the same. What about Romaine? It's usually the same price or cheaper and almost as good as red leaf.
