One red eared slider will require a 20 gallon tank at the can start putting more sliders in at about 60gallons.

yes you can, but make sure you have a good filtering system and lighting, 10 or 20 gallon should work fine for a slider

For one red eared slider a 20 gallon tank and up is required.You can start doubling housing at around 60 gallons.

Yes, the more room a turtle has, the more happy it will and it will live longer. Make sure the water is clean and it has plants and big rocks!

No, because a red-eared slider lives in ponds and lakes and garter snakes live in grassy fields. They also have different humidity requirements.

My guess it that it is not going to be a happy little turtle! I would recommend a MUCH larger tank or a fenced-in outdoor pond!

A baby red eared slider needs as much as two of its shells sideways.

Almost any fish but not goldfish. Goldfish are good feed for turtles

Yes as long as they are of similar sizes and completely healthy.

of course! i have a baby red eared slider living with a big 8 inch turtle and they get along! you have to make sure they know and like each other before you put them both in the same tank

They should have at least a 40 gal tank. The tank should long not tall.

I'm pretty sure. I've had a red eared slider and an Ouachita map turtle living together in the same tank for about... I don't know exactly... Maybe about 3 years? They are friendly toward each other (well, they aren't mean to each other) so I'm pretty sure they can be in the same tank. But my red eared slider did grow up together.

A 5 inch sized turtle is too big for a gallon sized tank. They need more room to swim and the filtration needs more water than that for a turtle that size. I have a 5 inch male red eared slider in a 29 gallon aquarium and I consider that to be the smallest tank I would recommend.

A long twenty gallon fish tank is optimal, but a ten gallon is a good temporary tank. It should be filled up to half way with dechlorinated water and have a rock or other basking spot that it can get out of the water onto.

no RES turtles are fresh water turtles

That seems awful large. Depending on the size of the turtle. You dont want to have too small of a home either because they can die from lack of space.

You can keep your slider in a small outdoor pond stocked with small live feeder fish, small snails, and aquatic plants. You can also keep him in an 75 gallon plus indoor tank. You should always bring your turtle in for the winter to keep him from hibernating or from freezing to death.

just throw your sperm in the tank and the turtle will eat it and it will be pregnet

your betta will do just fine in close proximity to the turtle
