I forgot to mention that I have a turtle tank. I have 2 turtles actually. 2 red-ear slider turtles. I got them probably like 4-5 years ago when I went to Chinatown to eat Dim Sum. I was walking around and saw these tiny turtles for sale and I had to get them. I actually got 4. Then I gave 2 away when they started to get kinda big.
Turtles are like the easiest pets to keep. They always get all excited when you get close to the tank because they are happy to see you..or they are happy to see you b/c you feed them. One time the filter broke and I didn't get a chance to fix it and yet they were as happy as if the filter was working.
I feed them sparingly to keep them small. My friend has 2 also and feeds them everyday and they're twice the size of mine. I hope one day to build a pond and give them a permanent home there.
