Moved to OR and need a Critter

I just moved to OR and lived here for 3 months with out any pets (you will never see my turtles again; they are in TX) I got bored I could not have any tanks in our rental house so I thought, why not bowls so I could have Betta fish. So I bought a bowl at Goodwill. Finally, I went to the pet store-- Petco. WOW!!!! the Bettas were looking great there!!!! I was going to get a regular Betta but a fancy one caught my eye. He was the prettiest of all the Bettas there. He turned out to be the most expensive one, being a Half Moon Betta as you will soon see. Instead of being $3 he was $14 . Well, as you might have guessed, I had to have this extraordinary Betta. I named him Fatal1ty (spelled that way).

New Baby Red Ear Slider Turtles

These are my new RES that I got from the creek. The one on the left, I think, is a boy; the one on the right is a girl. They're the smallest turtles I have, so they are in a separate tank. They are exactly one inch long. They aren't eating yet but they will once they get used to their new environment. (Click on any photo to enlarge and see detail.)

The picture below shows my new turtles by a US quarter.

Close-up shots of the babies. (AREN'T THEY SO CUTE?)!!!!!

Some more shots of the babies in their tank.

They are really shy.

My old soft shell and my new soft shell

I got a new soft shell turtle. You can tell the difference between the two soft shells by their color. the new one is darker and the old one is lighter. The first set of photos show my NEW TURTLE.

The second set of photos show my first soft shell that was on my blog before.

I am participating in Fur Friends Friday at The Old House in Texas and Inspired By... at The Inspired Room.

PS. My other turtles are not in my tank because I could not get a good picture with them in the tank. Thank you for looking at my blog. Keep checking back because it's spring and I'll be finding a lot of new turtles.

Turtle Water Conditioner

I bought this turtle conditioner mostly for my soft shell turtle. He has very sensitive eyes and blinks from the chlorine and chloramines. I got the dechlorinator from PetSmart for about $11. I totally recommend this product; it works like a charm. My soft shell turtle doesn't blink anymore.
