Feeding Instructions

This food is formulated for aquatic turtles with a minimum shell length of 2 inches or larger. Open container and spoon out 1 level teaspoon of food per turtle. Let turtles feed for a minimum of 1 hour. Remove any uneaten food after 1 hour. (Note: The floating cranberries can be left in the tank as some aquatic turtles take time to develop a taste for them.) If your turtles eat all of their food in a short time, you may want to increase the food amount to 1 level tablespoon, per turtle, or more per feeding. Feed turtles every other day (four times per week). Do not overfeed your turtles.

For Adult turtles (7 inches and larger), supplement with Zoo Med Natural Aquatic Turtle Food - Maintenance Formula.

    My turtles like it

    By on

    The only reason I give it 4 stars and not 5 is because my baby turtle can’t get to them when the sink to the bottom and they sink in the water faster then most food. But my bigger turtle loves them. I will buy this again for the biggest one. Highly recommend it

    Gourmet Aquatic Turtle Food

    My red-eared slider Sammy loves the meal worms in this gourmet mix. Never eats the dried fruit for some reason. As long as he eats everything else I'm ok with that.

    Turtles not crazy for food

    By on

    Maybe it's a bad week for them but my red ear sliders have left this food sit each time I have fed them it. They weren't crazy about the red shrimp either. I will see how they are next week and try again with this new brand.

    Shelldon loves it!!

    By on

    I got this on the off chance Shelldon would eat it. The food that came with his kit he barely touched. So I saw this, ordered it and he loves it! He is actually eating his food immediately. His old food I would have to leave with him in another tank for an hour just to have him eat one piece. I love how it has multiple ingredients also!
