    i have a ten gallon tank with almost more "large" rocks in it than water... it only has about 4 gallons of water in it "maxed out"... i keep less water in it because there are turtles in there, not fish... when i was a kid at one point i had more than 20 box turtles living on the side of my house.. now in a new house i have two "alleged" red eared sliders... i use the term alleged because there are many many species of redears and some are good for pet use and stay small-er and some are more rowdy and arent as good... mine dont have normal red ears.. they are more rusty colored... anyway when i first got them they were small like this:

    thats actually one of them.. that one was the smaller of the two.. the lady bought me another one the next day because "he looked sad and alone"... the other one was slightly bigger then and is a bit bigger now... they are too big for the tank.. but thats being worked on...
    [​IMG]
    thats a more recient photo not new by any means but they arent tiny there... not that you can really tell much anyway..
    [​IMG]
    its funny to see them this small now all swimming around happily zooming around the tank.. and now they bump around into everything and are fucking massive compaired to then..
    [​IMG]
    i bought some fish for them once because i heard that feeding them live food cut down on the amount of excess waste in the water... another drawback of turtles.. they are pretty messy, they eat where they shit.. so it goes.. i got them this grip of guppies and they didnt know what to do at first... so the fish slowly disapeared one by one... i noticed one of them seemed to have a headache... and arnold was wrong this time it was in fact a tumor...
    [​IMG]
    i can post more about filter and pump issues and how i resolved these problems.. and the great pump i have now... i have a few more turtle stories and info about a MASSIVE sucker fish i ended up having to take out of the tank.. the thing was like a trout..

    word to turtles... ill update it with a pic of how massive they are now soon.. i need to clean the pump..

    werd to that tank,,, its madness... i found a photo from when i first got the new pump...

    [​IMG]

    they could clog the pump and filter that came with the starter tank in no time flat... later i realized they are just really messy eaters and i needed a lot smaller food...

    edit: i dont have that gay sprinkler bar on it anymore... i think even fresh water would clog those holes eventually...

    im only bumping this because i had to take the gravle (gravel?) out of the tank a few months back because i caught them eating the glass(its crushed tubbled glass).... i was worried at first because the smaller turtle seemed more mellow than normal and wasnt eating... every now and then i STILL find lil bits of glass they must still be pooping out.. one time i found a rather large piece and i felt for the poor guy who had to poo that one out.. there hasnt been glass in there for more than 6 months and last mouth i still found a few pieces... word.

    bump
