My question is, what kind of fish are appropriate for him? I know he is a baby and I don't want him to choke if he attempts to eat the fish, so I'm not sure...

    Staying buried?

    Hey everyone, we've had our three toed, Clem, for almost two months now. I've been worried about her recently because she literally stays buried under her substrate all day (and I think night too).

    Wardley's good for a Russian tort

    I got these Wardley's Reptile Sticks but the picture would imply they are for an aquatic turtle (they were a gift). I have a Russian. Could he still eat them? The ingredients are Fish Meal, ground corn, poultry by-product meal, dehulled soybean meal. Not sure what most of those mean.
