Can we keep turtle and fish in the same aquarium?

I would not recommend keeping them together. Turtle harvest many types of bacteria that your fish are not used to. Your fish would probably become ill and die trying to fight the bacteria. Also, your turtle (depending on size) could easily kill a fish, whether on purpose or unintentional. I would suggest separate tanks. Good luck
