hi. my dad is thinking of getting me a 150 gallon tank long for christmas. i was wondering if my 4 painters and res could all fit. the res is about 6\" and the painters 5\",4\", 3\",2.5\" can they all fit. can they stay in those arrangement for ever?

wow,wish I would be getting a tank that size. what kind of filtration do you use, since the tanks arent full with water,most of the filters you hang over the top dont work well and make alot of splashing noice,i have a fully submersible in my 30 gall.and 20 gall. but man they need cleaned all the time, I still havent found a good way to keep these tanks cleaner, I am always changing water,I have six RES babies, and now a painted baby in a tank, they are growing so fast I need to move them, but i have to change the water every few days,

At the size your turtles are now, they should ideally be in a 210 gallon tank. (Add up the inches and multiply by 10--ten inches of tank per inch of shell front to back.) And they`re most likely not through growing yet. You will eventually need a pond for them.
