Turtle Diseases

What food should i get for my turtle since im leaving for vacations?

I heard about giving him feeder fish but I'm worried that they will have diseases, and since I wont be home, I wont be able to see if he gets sick :/ is there anything else I can do?

Romaine lettuce will work, just make sure it isn't iceberg! There are also turtle pellets.

But to be honest, I wouldn't worry about the feeder fish giving your turtle any diseases. They were built to eat fish, and they have natural immunities to take care of whatever a fish might have. My boyfriend has had two turtles for two years now, and they get feeder fish all the time. Neither of them have had any health problems whatsoever.
