Important: Follow the conversion method.

Method 1
Feed every morning: Offer slightly more food than your aquatic turtle can eat in a 5-7 hour period, and allow your pet access to its food for the entire daylight period. Important: Be sure to remove uneaten food at the end of each day.

Method 2
Feed turtles in a separate "feeding" tank: This method reduces waste and debris and helps maintain water quality. Put turtles in their "feeding tank" with slightly more food than they can eat in 1-2 hours every day.

These quantities serve as initial estimates, since the amount of food eaten by your aquatic turtle will depend on its size, condition, health, and tank temperature.

A healthy aquatic turtle is alert and aware of its surroundings, actively swimming in its tank. Its eyes are bright and its nose is free of discharge. It will eat readily, and enjoy basking. Aquatic turtle stools are dark and formed.

Food intakes will be less than normal when animals are cold, sick or stressed. Low food intake is unhealthy for your aquatic turtle and will increase its susceptibility to serious disease. Factors that may stress your aquatic turtle include a tank that is too small or too cold, dirty water, and intimidation from tank-mates. Check water temperature and quality, and observe for stressful conditions. If low food intakes persist, consult your veterinarian.

Important: Water quality is essential for the health of your aquatic turtle. Water should be filtered continuously and changed frequently.

Rep-Cal has long been the industry leader in reptile nutrition, and no other company backs their products with as much research and expertise. In addition to being nutritionally sound, Rep-Cal diets avoid the problems associated with most commercial diets.

 

Problems with meal or mash diets:

  • Dustiness irritates a reptile's respiratory tract
  • Tendency to become trapped in crevices of the mouth and or teeth, which may lead to oral health problems

Problems with compressed-pellet (alfalfa "semi-moist") diets

  • Low-temperature binding fails to improve digestibility
  • Decreased palatability associated with low temperature binding

Problems with table food diets

  • Notoriously deficient in protein, fiber and calcium

 

Rep-Cal Foods are nutritionally complete, with the needs of individual species carefully researched and tested. Our ingredients are gently cooked by a process called extrusion to improve taste and digestibility. The extrusion process also heats the food to kill bacteria, and allows for the formation of a pellet that isn't dusty.



Veterinarian-Tested, Reptile-Approved
In addition to nutritional quality, Rep-Cal has given careful attention to the appeal and palatability of our foods. Our multi-colored foods mimic food which reptiles enjoy in the wild and contain a natural blend of ingredients including papaya, mango, strawberry and apple fiber. We tested several recipes on our animals in order to create foods which even the pickiest eater will love.



The Most Researched And Tested Food Available
No other reptile food has this much research behind it. Guaranteed. Rep-Cal Foods are formulated by leading reptile veterinarians and nutritionists. Each diet has been tested for nutritional quality on our animals by means of complete physical examinations, growth measurements, and blood analyses. Rep-Cal is continuing with long-term feeding trials, as well as research in reptile nutrition, to ensure that our products always provide the best possible nutrition for growth, reproduction and health. We are confident that Rep-Cal Foods provide the highest quality of nutritional care available.
