"My 2 month old RES lives in a 40 gallon long aquarium. He has a basking light, uvb light, a ramp for basking, a water heater and powerful filter (200 gallons per hour). He lives with 3 rosey red minnows and 6 zebra danios. I made the mistake of feeding him dried shrimp treats and then he wouldn't eat anything else. I have some advice on what to do if this happens to anyone else: Buy baby turtle floating food sticks, grind them down to a powder, add a little calcim/vitamin powder and a drop of water. Add a tiny bit of the dried shrimp (for the smell) and mix into a paste like texture. Then I put a dab of the mixture on the tip of my finger and hold it just above the water so he can reach up and get it. This is working great and he is thriving. I also have a small piece of cuttlebone floating in the water and have ordered water lettuce and water hyacinth. I haven't seen him bite the cuttlebone yet. He does try to bite the fake plants, this is why I ordered the edible water plants. I hope this info might help someone else out there with a picky eater like mine."
