E. African Serrated Side Neck turtle habitat
Setting up your new west African side neck turtles aquarium can be fun, and easy. First, start with the right sized aquarium. You can either start with something small and upgrade Or build a larger setup to last the lifetime of your baby West African side neck turtle. For baby East African Serrated Side-Necked Turtles, something as small as 15-20 gallons can work. Juvenile and adult East African Serrated Side-Necked Turtles will require more area for both swimming, and dry-docking (basking). An aquarium of 40-75 gallons can be used for up to 3 adult African side necks. As a rule of thumb, the larger habitat you can provide, the better for your new baby turtle.
Dry Dock and Basking
For Basking and dry docking, you must provide something for them to climb upon, and dry out and bask. Usually, you are also providing the UVB lighting over the basking/dry dock area. Also, we recommend using a reptile UVB light that is 5.0 or 5% or 10.0 or 10% works best. Using a tube style t5 high output UVB lamp is much better than a coil style. If you are using this you may or may not need an additional mercury vapor UVA UVB lamp for basking.
East African Serrated Side-Necked Turtles for sale – Food and Diet
Feeding your new baby East African Serrated Side-Necked Turtle the proper diet is a big deal. Using small commercially available water turtle pellets for babies and hatchlings is fine. Often labeled as baby water turtle food, using these makes the most sense. As they get older we recommend moving to a high-end turtle floating stick, like the ones made by tetra Reptomin for example. Using a high-quality diet all the time ensures a healthy water turtle for sale. We recommend feeding sparingly as feeding is also the easiest way to lower water quality. Maintaining a clean habitat and water go hand in hand with feeding proper amounts. Depending on your filtration system, you may be able to feed more or less per 3-4 minute span. All of our turtles for sale here at CB are started on Reptomin floating turtle food.

Distinguishing the sexes can be done when a juvenile turtle is roughly 5 inches in length.
