i have a female red ear slider and a quite small eastern musk turtle. i was wondering if it would be ok to put them in the same tank? the red ear slider is like four times bigger than the musk turtle so i wasen\'t sure. just wondering if i need to get a seperate set up. thanks

Im not sure how those two types of turtles would react together but i know they say not to put turtles together that differ alot in size because then problems could arise. Such as agressive behavior, the smallest turtle getting cheated when it comes to feeding time, etc.
Good luck

Never heard of an Eastern musk turtle. An Eastern Mud turtle, yes. Which do you have?
