eventually she is going to need a bigger tank but for now you should be more concerned with her eating habits. have you tried worms (cut in halves or smaller)? or live feeder fish? or small dried shrimp.
Have you changed the habitat or daily routine? Does the map have a basking light with uv? how often are u cleaning the water? do u have a big enough filter?
