Pooing a lot!

Post by Lucker » Sat Jan 07, 2017 6:56 pm

Hey I got a false map turtle from a friend a few weeks ago until now he had been pooing when I feed him, it was like a normal poo but today he's been going every couple of hours and it's messy not a solid poo like he had been doing
Should I be worried?

Also I would like to say sorry for how many times I said poo

Hi there, and welcome

What was he being fed and what are you feeding him now? And how often? And what sort of age do you think he is?

And I'm sorry for so many questions!!!

As Julie says, knowing what you've been feeding, and how much, is important as well as setup details - size / filtration / temps.
