Res do good alone, they don\'t depend on Social Relationships like humans or other animals, infact I would reccommend keeping turtles alone if not intending to breed them to save some trouble.

Jude`s right--they don`t need \"friends.\" RES are territorial and can get agressive if they don`t have enough space, so if you got another one, you would eventually have to get a really big tank, especially if one or both were females.

The decision, of course, is ultimately yours, but if you still decided to get another, don`t have a big difference in size, and quarantine the new one (90 days) before you put it with your turtle so you know better that it doesn`t have anything your turtle could catch.
