ok...ive had these guys (4 of them) for about a week now and they wont eat!!! they are babies (about the size of a half dollar) andi have them in a 20 long with plenty of water (calcium enriched) a nice filter, a good basking area, plenty of UV and heat (bulb for basking and a water heater) well...now one of them has swollen eyes (lack of vitamin A ive read) and 2 of them have soft shells (obviously lack of calcium) i dont know what to do...i know they need these nutrients but i cant make them eat! today i put them in a medium sized tupperware container (container is in the enclosure with UV and heat directly over it) and gave them small (dusted) pin head crix, romaine lettuce, and chopped up pinky mice and baby turtle pellets. and they STILL arent eating!!! these guys are in trouble and will surely die soon if they dont start eating and i dont know what else to do!!!! somebody help!!!!!!
