  1. umm....we just recently moved into an apartment in the city so it's kinda hard to find space...I feel so sorry for them... would someone be kind enough to look after them for me this winter?

  3. They are in a baby bath tub with some water and stones in the middle.
  4. They seem to be moving around everyday and lost a lot of weight too..should I be worried???
  5. Hi all My turtles are 3 years old and this is the first year they are spending winter outside. Is it normal they are not eating? They still seem to move around so don't think they're hibernating...It's been like this for about 2 months since the weather got cold...are they going to be alright??? Thanks

  12. We don't know where we are staying yet, I thought it was a good idea to find out what to do first...the gold stamper battery sounds pretty interesting! and Water world!!!How's hot water beach? yea, maybe no paua, but what about other shellfish like pipi or mussel?
  13. Hi all, i'm planning a long weekend trip to Coromandel. Is there anything that's definitely worth a visit? Any attractions/activities? Also I'm thinking to bring a small BBQ machine and hopefully gather some shellfish such as paua & etc and have a BBQ picnic, where would be the place to go please? Any comments would be helpful!!!
  14. Thanks guys, I have a 3 ft tank near a window with no UV lighting as I was told the turtle would get enough from the sunlight. I have a big canister filter with really good water flow. I think I should start doing some water change more regularly...ummm... :-?
  15. Hi guys, How on earth do I get rid of the green algae in my turtle tank? I searched the forum and people suggested putting chinese algae eaters or b/ns, but I'm afraid that my turtle will be a little too friendly to them :lol: I cleaned a few times, but they seem to grow back so quickly (within a couple of days ). Now that I left them to grow, I've got these long green lines on the buttom of my tank and my green sliders seem to have grown furs! :lol: Any ideas?
  16. Found Biosuppliers on the net, but they don't do frozen food retail only trade enquiries though...
  17. where can I get it? can i order it online?
  18. They are not interested in veges at all...I must have spoilt them when they were little...cat biscut, really?!!!! That'll be great!
  19. I tried to order some JBL Energil (now out of stock) from Petplanet website but apparently they are under some restructuring and receiving heaps of complaints because of delays in delivering. Is there another place similarly priced I can order online? Anyone know? I've been feeding them raw prawns I bought from supermarkets and they seem to become sick of it...
  20. I thought he was choking too, they are red-eared sliders.

  22. I cooked them with some sauteed onions, butter, pepper flakes and some white wine. The juice was brilliantly delicious but we had to throw all the tuatua because they became sand gums...lol... :lol: ..did I mention the juice was nice? !!
