It is recommended that aquatic turtle diet is based on quality pellet food designed for turtles. This applies especially to growing specimens. Pellet food has necessary vitamins and minerals in a form that will not be washed away by the surrounding water during the eating process, which is a serious problem when vitamins and minerals are added to fresh food in either powder or liquid form.
The best turtle diet is consisted of special turtle pellets (preferably pellets from two or more manufacturers), dried Gammarus (Gammarus has high calcium content) and invertebrates (earth worms, blood worms, mosquito larvae, meal worms, crickets, snails etc. depending on the turtle size) in either live, dried or frozen form that are given as an additional treat. Turtles should also have a cuttlefish bone in their aquarium for additional calcium.
Food pellets and sticks made for aquarium fish are also suitable for turtles as an additional treat.
Pellet food does not pollute aquarium water so turtles can be fed directly to their aquarium.
