FAQs on Baby Pet Turtle Care
How big will the turtle grow?
Turtles will eventually grow to around 30cm Diameter however it does take quite a few years.
How long with it be before I will need to upgrade to a bigger tank?
The $297 special Turtle Package generally lasts up to a year before it will be too small. So a decision you will need to make will be ‘Is it better to buy a bigger Tank from the start?’ You can get quite a few years out of a 4ft tank.
What if we go away on holidays?
The turtle will be fine for a few weeks as long as it’s not a baby. If you go away give the turtle a big feed over 3-4 days then wait a few days for the turtle to digest the food. Then do a 50% water change and turn the temperature down to about 16 degrees. The turtle’s metabolism will slow down and he won’t be hungry. When you get back from holidays, turn the temperature back to 24 degrees and feed up!
How often do I need to change the water and how much?
We recommend a 50% water change every week. To reduce the amount of water changes there is an option to change the internal Filter for a Canister filter. The cost will be an extra $100. Your workload will be decreased.
Can I put gravel on the bottom of my turtle’s tank?
Small gravel is a definite NO NO! Turtles can eat this size gravel and it can get stuck in their intestines and cause issues. If you want to use gravel make sure the diameter is minimum 10mm upwards.
Can I handle my Pet Turtle?
Yes, turtles become very friendly and will eventually eat from your hand but remember that turtles are an aquatic animal and they spend most of their time in the water. Half an hour human/ turtle companionship will be ok.
What do the turtles eat?
Turtles are easy to feed. They eat a combination of pellets and frozen food in both meat-based and veggie based. You can also feed your pet turtle fish.
What species of Turtles are they?
The turtles we sell are the Murray Short Neck. They are the Easiest, Hardiest and most trouble free to look after.
Do I need a license to keep a turtle?
You don't need a license to keep Murray Short Neck turtles.
Where is Waterlife Aquarium located?
We are in Hoppers Crossing, which is in Melbourne's Western Suburbs and in Ferntree Gully in the East.
