Anyone have any suggestions on how to feed our little guys? I fed mine in the tank last night but it seems like they didn't go after it much, I've read a few places to take them out of the tank and feed them in a separate tank or something along those lines. I could of sworn seeing a pic of someones tank that had a little lid? or rubermate that they kept in the tank and had food with some water in it?

It could be anything that holds water, you just need to be sure the water level is high enough incase they flip over. In most cases, they are more comfortable in their tank.

Lol people always say turtles are messy. Mine hunts all day long for food so if he even by chance missed food during feeding he's garanteed to find even a flea sized piece floating around
