Re: Can I put in fish with my turtle?

it should be fine to put fish in with him but there is a chance he will eat them although my res made friends with the ones i put in with him. i would recommend guppies there cheap so if they get eaten then oh well

Re: Filter Without Using Carbon

as far as i\'ve learned about water filteration in a enviromental biology course i\'m taking is that carbon removes the bad taste out of the water thats all but hey i\'m not saying i\'m right.

Re: What filter is best????

i use a fluval 4 in my 55 gallon and a whisper filter in my 29 gallon. both of these have worked great for me but i would recommend a fluval 2 or something that filters at least 10 - 20 gallons more than what your tank is. why? because turtles are dirty and this will keep the water cleaner.

Re: How much water in tank for baby?

i have two baby res and have them in a 55 gal tank which i have filled about a foot high. they are doing good with this much water in there but i guess it depends on how good of swimmers your res\'s are. but i think the rule is genrally as deep as they are wide.
