My boyfriend and I know someone with a fresh water turtle living in an aquarium with fish. The medium size turtle lives submerged all the time(no basking rock or anything). It is a light green turtle with a flat carapace--very thin from top to bottom. The owner says he found the turtle in a fresh water stream. My boyfriend has talked about getting a similar turtle for 6 mos., so I thought I\'d give him one for Christmas. He has a 55 gallon tank (heated, lit, etc.)in which to care for it. Can you identify this turtle and.or direct me where I can find one? Patty

His face is cute with that cute pinoccio nose, but he looks flat like a pancake.

Do you have one?
