have three new RES babies, in a 10 gallon tank. Soon i will be getting a 55 gallon tank.
Here are my questions.

1.Will it hurt the turtles to be handled?
2.How long does it take for them to become adults?
3.What other kind of animals can they live with?

PS: If you know a lot about RES and would answer my future questions, please give me your Email address.

thanks,
Josh

baby RES are not like puppies or kittens, so keep the handling to a minimum. As for how fast they grow, it all depend on how you treat them, their growth rate varies. As for other pets in the turtle tank, if you put in fish, the turtles will most likely eat them. Believe it or not turtles are preditors.
