Thank u!Thats super cool. Hows the filtration? Do you have to change a prefilter pretty often? It seems like you've got a great naturalistic environment there.
I was to at the beginning of my research but they also do it in nature without any help and im providing stable temperatures so there's no possible danger of freezing and no danger of predators. These two things seem to be the highest problem for turtles during hibernation.17 gms! He seems so tiny to hibernate! I'd be petrified!
Wow, I really liked your post. I'm curious of how is Petrie doing, pls tag me on your next update !Little text update not much to say and see. He has not lost weight so far. Hes inactive but responds to the touch of his feet.
12 januar: 17 grams
I post the Next update in March when he is finished with his winter sleep and again in his outside tub.
I would say 50% once a week or every other week since torts poo a lot. Or you could do the 20% and "vaccum" the bottom to clean up wasteYes thank u. I have read about this recently and will change next season to only 20% water changes per 2 weeks and occasionally topping of the water that evaporated.
