treat it as you would any turtle..
- clean, fresh water changed daily or filtered if there's any - feeding it every other day (e.g. small guppies, sinking pellets, mealworms, leafy veggies) avoid daily feeding as it may lead to constipation or other intestinal problems - basking spot; maybe a driftwood or a rock - sunlight or UV light (very important for keeping any turtle healthy) - lots of swimming space. rule of thumb: length and depth of enclosure must at least be 4 or 5 times the length of the turtle's carapace - a substrate to burrow in. turtles love digging!
