I have them in a 20 gallon long tank with a humungous snail, too big for
them to eat, but they use him as a stepping stone to their basking rock.
I'm hoping snails have a greater appetite for turtle poop than turtles
have for the snails, but I suspect that will be a race. I would be
afraid to put the sliders in my little pond with the shubunkins, but the
pet shop has two full-grown ones with their huge comets. At first they
all tried making Sushi of each other, but they gave up and things seem
peaceful, although I know they aren't supposed to be. I have two of the
dreaded bull frogs in the pond and peace reigns there so far, but maybe
that will change.
