Hi Linda,

My RES is a couple inches long (3 months old) and I have her in a 15 gallon aquarium at 80 deg F with a heat lamp and a UVA/UVB lamp, which I keep on about 12 hours a day. I feed her the commercial Reptomin pellots in the morning and I give her some fruits and veggies in the afternoon, such as a piece of banana and/or a leaf of dark green lettuce or spinach. She will eat anything. I also keep the calcium block in the water, which she occasionally bites into. She seems healthy and active but I notice that she has some peeling translucent skin hanging from her. It doesn't look discolored or infected but I don't know if skin peeling is just from growth or if it is a sign of a skin infection.

Sara
