Turtles are extremely messy. I kept 2 res for years (before I had to rehome from my chronic lbp) .. Let me tell you!! lol My Fluval 405 4 chamber power filter couldn't keep their tank clean!! (granted for some time it went without proper cartridges and pieces broke off it once while they were shedding but)

Good luck at the rep store!!!

Turtles are messy eaters. Some people just have a separate feeding tub that they put them in for 30min-1hour. Could be a good idea.

Mess i have found is not a problem as long as you have a good filter.

I fed my turtles in the bathtub (if they had live fish) and in a tote box for pellets and treats (not so gross to clean). And if you do that, leave them in the feeding tub until they poop!! lol

Small animal poop/pee may seem gross. I thought my rabbit smelt nasty when I had her.. The first time my snake pooped though, I couldn't believe that anything could smell that nasty. Reptile poop is probably one of the grossest things you will ever smell. I usually wait a couple hours until it dries up to clean it, once it's dry it's not as bad.

Haha!! Turtle poop. Once during out time one of my turtles flipped over and couldn't get up and before I found him he pooped. I was surprised because aquatic turtles like need to poop under water but he managed and it was gross and smelly!!!

Yep. All that undigested hair and bone has to go somewhere.

Gross, you guys. Lol so I found out he is a mud turtle for sure. But the dude said that he wouldn't need a heating or UVB lamp. I have a water heater in their from one of my tanks keeping the water at 78 degrees. He said that should be enough. Thoughts on this? He told me just to supplement with calcium and vitamin D powder and he'd be fine.
