Re: Painteds! (pic heavy)

I use Arcadia's 100W self-balasted MVB. A good quality bulb that seems to give a nice wide spot and even basking temps.

Re: Painteds! (pic heavy)

I just have well filtered water (large external filter), a 100w MVB over the basking area and a varied diet based around a quality pellet.

Re: Southern Painted Turtle Interest.

Sadly I'm not a breeder or even a retailer - this is simply an offer of assistance in acquiring this often difficult to source species, so I believe the price is relative to what's involved for me. Even if I do pick several up, I will happily keep them all to myself, so I wasn't looking to open a di...

Southern Painted Turtle Interest.

Hello everybody, I'm picking up some chrysemys picta dorsalis hatchlings at the end of the month, and wondered if anyone wanted me to get one for them?
