Turtle Setup Help
Hello, to start off I want to apologize if this is in the wrong section or not even supposed to be in this forum! I have just been searching for active forums that might be able to help and I cam across this one! So here are my questions!
1.) I just got a baby alligator snapping turtle and I am about to put him in a 15 gallon tank. I have an idea of how I am going to set it up, but I heard you should not use plastic plants because Kidd (my snapping turtle's name is Kidd) might eat them. I was wondering what aquatic plants are easy to find/buy and are safe for my turtle to munch on if he does want to and will grow in the tank!
2.) I wanted to have fish swimming around not only for the aesthetic, but also so he could hunt a little for his own food! So I was wondering what kind of fish would be fine? He is a new hatchling also! Just a couple days old!
3.) Can any of these things be bought at petsmart and if you have any tips or ideas let me know please!
Also, yes I am fully aware of the risk of owning a snapping turtle when they reach a larger size. I also am fully aware of how long they live, the size they can reach, and that he will need to be switch to a new tank in about a month or two!
