OK. I have a 33 gallon aquarium (48L x 13W x 13T). In it is 3 baby terrapins (about 1-1.5". They have a turtle dock they hang out on 75% of the time. There are 6 fish in the water. They dont bother with the terrapins. My concern is they are so small that they dont swim really well yet. Twice this week there were one of them at the bottom lookin lifeless. The 1st day I picked him up and put hi on the dock, he literally was lifeless, An hour later he was normal and alive. The 2nd time, with a different little guy, he was at the bottom upside down, not moving. So I picked this one up and put it on the dock, instantly he sticks his head up all attentive. Should I be worried about their lack of strength/weight to swim in 12 inches of water?? Should I put them in a separate, more shallow aquarium until theyre older??
