Turtles and Sliders

Turtles and Sliders

The Tropco stock a range of freshwater turtles throughout the year. 

All turtles are reptiles which mean that they all require air to breath. There a no, fully, aquatic turtles and so all turtles need to be kept with a significant percentage of dry land on which to bath. They also require UV light to maintain a healthy shell and bones.

Turtles are not ideal to co-exist with fish as they are nearly all predatory in some way. If you do keep fish in your turtle system then you will find some get eaten.

For more information on the care of our turtles, please see our Freshwater Turtle care sheet.
