" Hello I was just given a turtle that someone could no longer keep. I am trying to find out if the enclosure it came with is good or if I need to make upgrades. It's in a 20 gal short tank, with a long flourescent type light it looks like a fish tank light, water of course that's about as deep as half the tank, then it has a floating piece of land that suction cups to the side, a filter and a fish tank type heater, gravel on the bottom and a few fake decorations. The turtle is about 4 or 5 inches I'd say. It appears active and healthy. But I thought it needed a different kind of light for the UV rays. Do I need another light or no? Also how can I tell which kind of painted turtle it is and what sex and its age?"
