"I have two African Sideneck turtles. I have had them for about three weeks. They have good appetites and are very active, but they seem to prefer to remain in the water and have never come out to bask that I can tell (at least I have not seen them basking). They are about 5' in length and have ample basking areas. They seem to prefer to either hide under the basking area or rest on the submerged heater. The basking area is about 85-90 degrees F as is indicated in my research prior to purchasing the turtles. Is there something wrong with them? Are there any health issues I should be lookingout for? They have a basking lamp and a UVA and UVB lamp.... "
