Last night mum and I cleaned out the new turtle tank for the first time! It was great fun!
Before, we didn’t have the proper set up, and so we were cleaning the small tank nearly every other day. But this nice new one has a filter, heater and other turtle mod cons and it lasted nearly two weeks!
We’ve got some tubing and a stopper to siphon the dirty water out of the tank, I’d never seen this before and I thought it was really funny!
I loved watching the water fall into the bucket. When mum went to empty it I checked on my ninjas.
As I looked at them up close, I realised mini Milo wasn’t quite so mini anymore! He’s got really tubby, really quickly. A week and a half on his new, super ninja, all round turtle pellets and he has exploded in his shell! I know he loves them, because he begs for them at the side of the tank. We were advised to let them eat as much as they could in 5 minutes once a day, but I’m afraid Milo is going to have to go on a little diet because he’s fat! His little stripy bum is hanging out of his shell! Hehe!
So I had a little chat with him and told him not to worry, but he needs to exercise more and his food is going to be cut down. Michael-Angelo is fine and being very supportive by doing extra laps of the tank to help motivate Milo beat the turtle tubs!
