  • They live in the water 24/7 but we have a basking floating log that they can come out of the water and bask under a heat lamp on the log. They eat in the water as well we give them a mixture of river shrimp, meal-worms and pellets (Fluckers Buffet Blend). They are very easy to care for we have a huge tank filled with water and river rocks (small) we have the log and heat lamp and some fake foliage but that's about it.

  • I bought a little shallow clear container that had a little island in the middle. Mine lived a long time, like years. LOL He ate in the water and that meant you had to pour the water out and add new pretty often.

  • Oh and get a filter it helps keep the water clean and bacteria free. You do have to add water from time to time and clean once in awhile but the filter should help out with that. Hope this helps.
