New Red Eared Turtles

June 19, 2009 | By Cyndileigh | 2 comments

I bought two red eared turtles yesterday because they seemed so mistreated. Now I have no clue what I am doing. I put them in a 2.5 gal aquarium (they are babies), and I put just enough water in it to reach their shells. I also put a rock in it with a ramp so they can climb out of the water and bask. I have been reading that they need a filter, but with such little water in the tank, does that even make sense? Should I put more water in the tank? They are so small, I don't want to drown them. And any other advice?
