I have a RES approx. 2 1/2 yreas old and 5 inchs. I would like to get another turtle. I know you should not mix painted and slidders. does anyone know of another species that would be ok to mix with a RES. I do not have room for a second turtle set up. I love my RES but would like a variety for my second turtle.

You don\'t want to mix turtles from different geological areas (North America with Asia, for example). I\'ve heard of painted turtles living with RES. Make sure you have them in a big enough tank--RES in particular can get aggressive if their space is too small.
