    Hi all,
    I have 3 turtles and 2 tanks, one of the turtles starting biting the others foot and resulted in some bad infections and toe amputations. I now will need to rehome 1 or 2 of my turtles as I don't want to set up a 3rd tank to keep them all apart, Any help would be much appreciated. I'm located south side Brisbane, Shailer Park but willing to meet somewhere or help anyway I can, just want them to go to a good home.
    0433688599 if anyone can help out.
