Like mature turtles, baby turtles need to bathe. If the body is not cleaned for a long time, the turtle will develop some infections, which may lead to poor health or even death. To avoid this situation, there must be a heating zone. You can float the sun floating board area in the upper part of the water tank.

• Change water at least once a week. A water tank that does not change water for a long time may increase the growth of garbage.

• There are additives that can be used to help clean water. Read the instructions carefully to use only the correct amount.

• Turtles may chew most things that are put in the water tank. Avoid putting cleaning agents such as snails in it, because the snail may be swallowed even before it hits the bottom of the tank.

• Wash hands thoroughly after handling turtles. They are known to contain Salmonella bacteria that may be harmful to humans.
