a 55-gallon is extremely good for one turtle but doesn't hold 2 for long. it also depends on how big the adult is and how small the baby is

Esspecially when its a baby softshell and an adult RES. The Res will take a couple bites out of any baby, much less one that has a 'softshell'.

I am going to ask that before you consider adding another turtle, please read this post. http://www.allturtles.com/msgboard/viewtopic.php?t=6825

Great suggestion, Deesy! I was trying to locate that post, but couldn't find it!

Killah, I would definitely say no to introducing the baby to the adult, the outcome could be horrifying, like Nevfalath's experience. I would suggest that if you must have both turts, to keep them in separate habitats.
