    They might be too cold. They need to have a basking spot of dry land, a heat lamp and a uv lamp. And if the room is cold you should get an aquarium heater as well. If you get an aquarium heater make sure you get an adjustable one with a dial to turn it up and down. Also get a thermometer for the basking spot and an aquatic one for the water.

    Five days is nothing. If it goes two weeks without eating, you might have to get tiny earthworms to get it started eating. You do want to make sure that temperatures and lighting are correct for sliders - - 80 deg. F water, 90 deg. F basking area, and 12 hr/d lighting. A degree or two either way won't matter much.
