How large are your turtles/how old? Do you actually have gravel in your tank as well or is it a bare bottom? Do you feed them in a separate container or right in the aquarium? Turtles are notoriously filthy and produce a ton of waste, so a really heavy duty filter is recommended (like a large canister filter). I personally use a fluval 406 in a canada goose selfridges uk 100 gal aquarium for a single RES. It may just be your filter doesn’t have enough power to keep up with the waste. Not knowing much about your tank, I would recommend:

Canada Goose sale 2 for feedings, put your turtles cheap canada goose jackets toronto in a separate container like a small plastic tub with water. Wait until they eat and poop before putting them back in their tank. Establish a routine where you do this canada goose outlet legit at the same time every day and they should canada goose factory outlet get used to it. Canada Goose sale

canada goose factory sale 3 upgrade to a canister filter. More expensive but they work way better and last a long time. canada goose factory sale

canada goose uk black friday I would definitely remove the gravel, it’ll be much easier to keep the tank clean plus it’s better for the turtles. At that age they should definitely be eating more than just pellets, turtles need a varied diet with lots of vegetables. Canister filters are more powerful and can handle more waste so I would recommend one. canada goose uk black friday

They start to get more interested in veggies canada goose outlet orlando when they’re a bit older. My RES transitioned to veggies canada goose uk distributor when I put in live aquatic canada goose outlet locations in toronto plants. You can usually get duckweed pretty cheap at the pet store, that will be a more natural food to them compared to lettuce. The other thing you can make and offer are turtle ‘jello shots,’ recipe:

What may help is desensitizing your RES to the presence of your hands. You can do simple things like adjusting a couple things underwater in the aquarium while he’s in there, canada goose outlet store uk without actually trying to touch him. Then gradually increase the amount of time your hands are in the tank until he doesn’t attack you/ignores you. Right now he likely bites for 2 reasons: 1 you were hand feeding (never do this, then they think you may be food) 2 you are a perceived threat (you’re touching him to remove him from his environment/giving him negative stimuli with the head tapping).

canadian goose jacket This next part is very important: when you have your hands in the tank to try and desensitize him, if he bites you, DO NOT REACT. You Canada Goose Coats On Sale have to just let him canada goose outlet bite you and don’t move or withdraw and let him let go on his own. Then keep your hand in the tank a bit longer before removing it. Right now he realizes ‘hand comes into environment, I bite hand, I cause pain, hand goes away.’ If you show no reaction, then he will realize that biting you is ineffective and ultimately will stop doing it since it isn’t producing the desired response. canadian goose jacket

That’s how I trained my birds to not bite me when I would have to adjust things in their cage. My RES never tries to bite me if my hands are in the tank, I can canada goose online uk scrub the sides of the tank or even hold my hand out underwater and he’ll come up and rest his feet on my fingertips. But if I ever pick him up and hold him to try and scrub his shell or do a health check you better believe he’ll try his hardest to bite me. I also don’t wiggle my hand at him above the water line, because he’ll think I’m feeding him and that just seems like a bad idea/asking to be nibbles on. Good luck! Hope it works.
