I hope this is ok to post this here?
It's called All Other Aquatic Chat so I guess so?

Before I go into a song & dance problem, I'd like to be sure 1st.

thanks

Ha ha! :laugh: Ok, I've had a few RES turtles in the past & donated them to a person with a huge pond. I never had problems with any of them.

About 3 months ago I adopted a turtle from the shelter who was part of an animal hoarding seizure at someone's home.

I had sold all my fish beforehand except my Oscar. The turtle is in a 75 gallon tank alone.

I set up my own above tank basking area exactly the same as I had it for my other turtles.

I'm getting worried because this guy WON'T bask. The water temp is about 75F & the basking site is in the late 80'sF, maybe 90F.

He's healthy, no soft areas on shell, eating great every 2 days on commercial food (2 different kinds), then romaine lettuce to graze on. He loves that, won't eat other greens at all.

Any help? I don't want him ending up with shell rot.

In the nicer months he'll be going outside with a little pool but its right now I'm concerned about.

thanx

Believe me I'll try, lol. I tried the photobucket thing & I still can't figure out what to do! I'm not a dumb person but geez, I dunno how to do some of these things. Plus I'm on my phone, not computer, hardly.
