Hello,

I apologize that no one has responded to your question sooner. Different experts come online at various times. I just came online and saw your question. My name is ***** ***** I’m a biologist with a special interest in reptiles. f you still need help, some additional information will be useful.

Has the turtle been eating?

Is he active and swimming, or just lying at the bottom.

What are the temperatures under the basking light and in the water?

Have you noticed bubbles coming from his nsoe?

Thank you.

Anna
