How do you care for your baby painted turtle?

Well you have to have a UV Light, a Turtle Dock, a Filter, a Heater, and at the least a 10 gallon tank. You need 1 gallon per inch of turtle. I have two baby painted turtles and they eat "Baby Shrimp and Krill" and eat alot each day. You should get some plants and gravel to put in the tank too. Turtles love to swim, so in the summer you can build a little pond and let the turtle live there until late autumn. You need to leave the UV light on at least 6 hours a day.
