Food for turtles

My 3 month old painted turtles are growing rapidly. I can't seem to feed them enough. I've tried to introduce lettuce to their diet as all I've been feeding them is dried shrimp and blood worms and they don't seem to like it. Any suggestions?

They do like munching on floating plants but shouldn't be their main diet.

At some point consider minnows and earthworms. There are also some decent floating stick foods that provide essential vitamins and minerals.

Tank On, Mike-
60g Marineland Community, Finnex Planted+ 24/7, Silica (pool filter) sand.
10g, 29g, & 37g fry grow out tanks, 110g stock tank.


What came first, the chicken or the egg. It was the egg, but not the egg of a chicken.
