Turtle Food Veg - 110g Frozen
Note: Available for pick up in-store only.
Mature omnivorous turtles such as the Macquarie Turtle or Murray Short Necked Turtle.
At Fish Fuel Co. we’ve specially formulated our Turtle Veg to provide a complete and balanced diet for mature omnivorous turtles. After many species of turtles have finished growing and have fully matured, they often start to include more plant material in their diet. In the wild, turtles feed on molluscs, bugs, small fish and crustaceans. Then as they mature they start to eat plant material that’s readily available to them.
So we’ve selected premium quality leafy greens and other top quality vegetables, to add to our protein sources of premium fish, molluscs and crustaceans. It provides a truly balanced diet for mature turtles that keeps them happy and healthy.
We’ve also included a special multi-vitamin and minerals formula including essential fatty acids omega 3, 6, & 9 developed by leading animal nutrition company Wombaroo.

How and when to feed:
Feeding once a day is usually sufficient for a mature turtle.
These feeding instructions should be used as a guide only, as there are many variables to take into consideration when feeding your turtle, such as the water temperature, the size of the turtle and whether your turtle is still growing. Care must be taken so not to over-feed or under-feed your turtle as both can cause problems.
If you feed your turtle a frozen cube, 5-10 minutes of feeding time should be enough time for your turtle to eat enough food to sustain it until the next feeding time. If you first thaw the cube in a glass of cold water and then give to your turtle, then allow just a minute or two of feeding.
Thawing the cube in a glass of cold water for 5 minutes will make it easier for smaller juvenile turtles to feed. Never thaw in hot water or the microwave as this will break down essential nutrients in the food. Always remove any uneaten food.
