Can anybody identify this terrapin please, we bought it today and the guy in the pets shop had it in a normal fish tank setup with cold water and he said it would be fine living in cold water. After doing some research prior to going we were expecting to be buying filters heat-lamps and such like. Totally confused now and any advice would be greatly accepted.
