"A long time fish enthusiast my boys begged for something more interesting so we just got our first turtle, an African Snake-neck. It is awesome! He's so curious and really watches what we do! We researched and spoke at length with a local reptile dealer about the right turtle for us, how to set up his habitat and what his needs would be. After a bit of trial and error on my part I believe we have a nice situation for him. However, the turtle guy said only three or four inches of water were needed. Online articles I've read said 8 to 10 inches. I added more water and he used more of his habitat but when he retreated to his favorite end, which was then deeper, he acted panicky and distressed so I took most of the additional water back out. Any comments or suggestions?"
