The Zoo Med Natural Aquatic Turtle Food is formulated for different growth stages. The major differences are the size of the pellets and protein levels.
The Maintenance Formula is ideal for adults, or turtles that are fully grown. At 25% protein and a larger pellet size measuring at 5/16", this food is the best choice for the larger turtles that are done with the fast growing shell phases and just need to maintain with a balanced diet. The Maintenance Formula is a floating pellet food, which is ideal for stimulating a feeding response since most turtles prefer to feed at the surface of the water. Any uneaten pellets should be removed before they start to break down so they do not dirty the water. As a general rule of thumb, offer your turtle as many pellets as it can eat within a 5 minute period.
