…you looked in your Red-eared Slider’s tank to find your pet looking back at you.
Any cute or funny moment with your pets? Let us know!
It has been a while since I tested Dumbork’s water. I have had no problems so far, except for high nitrate readings. I was glad when I saw that the nitrate level decreased, from 40-80 ppm (parts per measure) to 10-20 ppm. If you have the API Freshwater Master Test Kit, I’m talking about the orange to red level in the Test Chart.
Ideally, the Nitrate level should be 0, but anything within the range of light orange to orange should not harm the turtle. Frequent water change should stabilize these levels,and even with my method of changing half the water every week, my water levels remain the same.
I’ve included a picture of the test results, with a few shots of Dumbork.
How are your pets? Let me know!
We are on the first week of July, and I am seeing rainy days ahead. Good thing Dumbork and I took advantage of the sunny days.
A few weeks ago we went to the local park. It was fun watching Dumbork scuttle around, go to the prickly grass, and settle her butt on one area. We were afraid that she would get lost because she’s still too small, but we closely watched her. Aside from small ants, nobody touched her very sensitive skin (haha), and went on with basking.
She seemed excited going aside, because there were moments where she would stay still inside her travelling box. She preferred the damp grass than the dry one, maybe because bermuda grass on the dry section of the park was prickly, she kept shaking her legs, as if something was tickling here.
Of course, we had some pictures taken:
