$29.95 inc GST
Premium formula floating Turtle Mix is a complete food designed for aquatic omnivorous turtles of all kinds.
Highly palatable, staple nutrition; a combination of selected fish, shrimp and complete diet sticks and crisps. Contains minerals and multi-vitamins to promote growth, digestive health, and enhanced natural colours and rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9.
Although Turtle mix is a complete food containing everything your turtle needs to promote growth, digestive health, and natural colour enhancement, we always recommend using additional fresh turtle-safe foods where possible. Good dietary information is key to successfully keeping your chosen species.
It can be mixed with any number of natural ingredients to keep your pet in full health. We do not recommend the inclusion of raw meats but certain types of fresh fish are fine. When using insects or salad items in your feeding regime, supplementation is advisable to keep your calcium to phosphorus ratios favourable. This is where the other two products in the range, Vit A Min and Calcium Ultra help plug the gaps in the captive diet. To ensure you are feeding the best food to your pet please follow the guide on our Insect Food when using feeder insects for your turtle.
Adult turtles can be fed every day, however, a smaller amount six days a week would be healthier, as captive turtles tend to be overfed. An amount of food that takes between five and ten minutes to eat is a good guide. For hatchlings and young animals, you can divide this into two feeds: one in the morning and one in the afternoon, allowing enough basking time to aid with digestion.
