Update on my male turtle.

The news is perplexing. He does not move at all, yet his eyes have cleared up and he is very active if I put him in a carrier. Inside the waterlandtub, he does not move.

I have been injecting him every three days and I wonder if this is part of the problem,i.e. he is hiding from me because he does not want to get a needle poke. I have put in acidic water (6.2 PH) and am taking them out for direct sun every day. He remains in the exact spot where I left him.

The vet told me last week to bring him back in if he does not start to eat and she will force feed him. Thoughts?
