Zoo Med Gourmet Aquatic Turtle Food, 6oz
Most aquatic turtles commonly kept as pets, such as red-eared sliders and painted turtles, are omnivores. Omnivores require a balanced diet of both plant and animal matter to get the nutrition that they need.
This food is scientifically formulated to meet the dietary needs of young and growing aquatic turtles with a shell length of 2-6". This high-protein diet contains fortified pellets along with shrimp, mealworms, and cranberries for variety. Plus, this diet contains no artificial preservatives, colors, or flavors!
Instructions for Use:
Open container and add a small amount of food to the water. Feed the turtle once daily or once every other day, as appropriate. Feed only as much food as your turtle will eat in approximately 5 minutes. Remove any uneaten food after one hour.
Note: The floating cranberries can be left in the tank, as some aquatic turtles take time to develop a taste for them.
Do not overfeed your turtle.
For adult turtles (7" and larger), Zoo Med Gourmet Aquatic Turtle Food should be rotated with Zoo Med's Maintenance Formula.
It is best practice to offer fresh food as the majority of your pet turtle's diet. However, prepared diets like Zoo Med Gourmet Aquatic Turtle Food add essential variety to their nutrition and are good to have on hand as a backup in case of emergency.
