Slider & Squirt

Just wanted to give an update on our pet baby turtles: Slider the red-eared slider (he's the larger, green one) and Squirt the painted turtle. We recently moved them to a smaller tank after the demise of our beta fish, Gabriella. Since the fish tank is smaller, we were able to make the water deeper. The turtles are really loving their new habitat and spend alot of time at the bottom of the tank. We put our remaining platy fish, Tiger, in the tank with them, and much to our surprise, he's still alive and kicking. Good thing these turtles are still so small. I was able to get some good photos of the turtles under water the other day. I especially love the 2nd photo, which shows Slider casually leaning with one "arm" against the rocks. If you look close in both photos, you'll see a bubble on his nose as well.
