Aquatic turtles need to live in water. How deep depends on the species. Turtles like painted turtles or slider turtles need water to be as deep as possible.

From their tank, they will eat anacharis (water plant) and goldfish, guppies, tadpoles and ghost shrimp.

Can you put turtles in an aquarium with fish?

No. While turtles can hold their breath longer than mammals can, they have to be in an environment where they can come up for air. They have to be able to breathe, or they will drown.More detail:The first answer is partly correct. You can't put a land tortoise in an aquarium with water, or yes they will drown.Aquatic turtles such as the Red Ear Slider or Yellow Bellied Slider need lots of swimming room. You must keep that in mind though when introducing fish. You will need a very large aquarium, probably at least 75 gallons.You also need to keep in mind the filtration since turtles tend to be very messy. As far as turtles not eating the fish you will have to make sure your turtles are well fed and the fish is of appropriate size. Minnows or smaller goldfish will most likely be eaten whereas a convict or a larger sized cichlid would be fine.

What is the general care for yellow bellied slider turtles?
