All is good! I finished enough yesterday that I could let them have full access, so they spent last night in their new addition (with a cut-through in the shared wall of the old section, they have access to both areas). I put them in the new part. Reactions by the turtles were mixed, from immediately seeking shelter, to exploring, to going back inside the old part. Checked on them this morning and put out fresh food. One baby, Turbo, was out exploring the new part and came to me (when he realized I had food!). He ate, then went back in the old part for a soak. I found almost everyone to show them where the food was, and they all seemed fine -- all but one ate.

I'll take some pictures soon and post them.
