i just bought a baby Red eared slider and i need help, what do you think will happen if i leave my turtle?

Answer:

I had a red-eared sliderIt was one that hatched from an eggIt was only the size of a nickle when hatched, and within nine months it was about 4 inches long! I had to keep increasing the size of his tank as he grewYours is too small! I got a huge rubbermaid container at Wal-MartHe had about 8 inches of water, with a platform to crawl out, and a lamp from a hardware store that has the aluminum surrounding itI bought a special 40 or 60 watt ultraviolet light bulb and put it about eight inches above the platformI kept it on all day for him to baskAt night, I turned it offI had a regular aquarium filter that was big enough for a 30 gallon aquarium, and several aquarium heaters to keep the water warmIf their water and his environment is too cold, it will become lethargic, and maybe even go into a hibernation modeThey wont eat when it's too cold, eitherThe bottom, I had about 1-2 inches of sand He thrived in this environment.
