i dt think they\'ll ate only b cuz of age difference. and they\'re different species and different species cant mate or produce fertile offspring. they mite try but nothing will ever happen.

Your boxes can mate. I\'m not sure about the side neck and RES. They\'ll probably try mating. They might have sucsess, but chances are slim. Good Luck.

I bought a sideneck female a year ago, then I went and got a slider(female). The Slider stressed out the sideneck so much I had to return her to the pet store, so I got a male sideneck for her and she is so very happy now. So what I am trying to tell you is that you shouldnt mix them because they are from differant parts of the world and they dont even share the same waters in the wild so they will not get along.
