Hi Folks,

I have a terrapin that doesnt seem to be eating lately. I add in the Nutrafin pellets and he might eat one or two of them, but no more. He seems healthy, swims around the tank, basks and is in great form. Just doesnt seem to want to eat. Any thoughts?

They eat a wide variety of food in the wild and are omnivorous. He/she is probably bored with the pellets.

If you take a look at This Page it details some dietary tips. You will have to scroll down a fair bit to see the turtle diet details but it's worth a look.
