Nicaraguan Slider turtles are very active and love to swim. While baby slider turtles for sale are mostly aquatic, these diurnal turtles also enjoy a dry, warm place where they can climb out and bask under a heat light making it important to have a nice floating dock basking area for your new slider turtles for sale.    A filter is recommended to help keep the water clean, and you will want to include an assortment of rocks, ramps, docks or other turtle accessories to provide ample space for climbing. A garden or outdoor pond is another common habitat solution for Sliders. Turtles are social animals and can be kept together as long as you provide enough space in their habitat.
