Turtles as tank mates?

Recommended Posts

Hi,just wondering if anybody's kept turtles with cichilds or other fishes(arrownas,giant goramys..etc) in the same tank as each other and if so do they get along well? Thanks

Nope haha my bad.... Clearly new,

Simy696 have a turtle at the moment that's 10-11 years old, but apparently 30 years or something along those lines for eastern long necks

I'm curious, Southwest, how do you have your tank setup for a turtle and fish. You have a landing for him to get onto?

Yeah mate always a 'dock' for the turtles to get out of the water, when they were inside had both UV-A and UV-B water proof heating lights to warm the dry area to around 30 degrees... Still used to take them out every day after work to get natural sunlight, can cause major problems if not... Turtles arent really as low maintenance as most people think, general idea on housing any turtle probably better off taking a look at www.australianfreshwaterturtles.com.au...
