i'm wondering if i'm feeding TOO much . .

i have a red ear slider and a yellow belly cooter

i give them "all u can eat" about 2 - 3 times a day . . .

that means i feed them for at least 4 minutes 2 - 3 times a day , i just keep feeding them until they lose intrest and swim away from the from of the tank and basically stop begging for food .. .

is this wrong?

i noticed they're getting pretty pudggy under they're shells lol

I only feed my turtles three times a week. I let them eat their fill but then they get no food for the remaining four days.

Young turtles will bebefit from more frequent feedings than older tirtles....but yes, your feeding is a little extreme, and will result in obese animals quickly... feeding them as omnius feeds his above is not a bad thing....or if you are really enjoying the interaction...limit the feed, and do it every otherday in SMALL amounts...
