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.

  • 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!

    I love that it has fruits and meal worms but the pellets don't have the best ingredients. My turtle does love it though.

  • Red Ear Slider Won't Touch It

    By on

    I bought this for our year old red ear slider. Terry usually eats a diet of some sort of turtle pellets and tiny dried out stinky shrimp. I thought Terry would like this because it had green pellets & tried shrimp type things and more, but it was a huge flop. Terry did eat the shrimp type pieces, but refused to touch anything else from the jar. If I hadn't opened it I would return it.

  • Some Unhappy Turtles

    By on

    This product was not liked by the four different species of aquatic turtles that I have. They eventually started to eat it, but only after a few days and their preferred diet was not available. I will be returning them to Flukers Aquatic Turtle Diet.

  • Great Variety

    By on

    This food has a great variety mixed with it. There are shrimp, fish, crayfish, meal worms and cranberries. I did noticed that my turtle was not interested in the cranberries. But she loves everything else!
