Thanks for all the help. I will be planning another trip to an ever better reptile store to talk to their experts. So far, Donatello has been doing well. He eats like a pig and is starting to get used to us. He'll even chop food from our hands. He still does not have a heating/UVB bulb but we are going to be upgrading him soon to a 20Long tank. He's been really active and I honestly think he appreciates the heated water, probably because it's the only source of heat he has.
