Cheap might come at a cost

Did I tell you guys that we bought baby turtles for the kids. They were cheap but the equipment it takes to take care of these babies was not. I had no Idea how much stuff the baby turtles needed to survive.

First we had to buy them a bigger aquarium and then a thermometer and then some kind of uv light and then some other kind of basking light and last night I was reading that they needed some kind of water heater. While searching for the heater I read about a tankless water heater while it wouldnt b e for the turtles I think it would be a good thing for our new house. I would buy one if it meant reducing our electricity or gas bill. I am all about the savings. Next time I will think twice about purchasing baby turtles that dont cost so much because the upkeep cost 4 or 5 times as much . Lesson learned but at least the kids are enjoying watching the little turtles swin around .
