    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    So I have had two female red ear sliders for about 4 years now? I was told to only feed them pellet food and crickets, but now they are starting to become over weight, so what can I feed them ? Daily as a diet .

    Hello,

    Is that all you have been feeding them for 4 years? It's quite expensive to provide a healthy balanced diet and husbandry for these guys. Chances are you've been provided with poor information if that's all you've been feeding. I prefer to provide you with a source of information rather than giving you a menu based on my experience which can lead to disaster. Below is a link that should answer all your questions.
