    What happened to the other turtle? If it got sick and died the remaining turtle might have caught the same thing.

    Check the temperatures and the length of time the basking light is on. Aim for 80 deg. F water, a 90 deg. basking site, and 12-14 hr of artificial daylight. If those are correct and he still won't eat, try offering some small live earthworms.

    I don't have an answer because I asked the question.
