As you remove the mud they just get uglier, if that's possible. But not a real aquarium choice. If you have a pond you may already have one depending where you live. But good luck with the fish choices.

All of Jonathans turtles are freshwater. A saltwater turtle is not doable, nor legal.

Please help ! Beginner with 700 Gallon Tank!

I didn't think so. Went to the Cayman Turtle Farm years ago. They had thousands of little sea turtles in big concrete ponds. They have been releasing turtles for a long time. This is a saltwater forum so I get too focused there.

Yea I can just imagine my turtle would race across the tank like it's a marathon and dive farther as his dive is like 18 inches now and hits glass sometimes

Turtles would spend 99% of their time at the top of the tank, sitting under the lights. You would need a step ladder to enjoy them.

Well my turtles spend a few hours a day up there far from 99% and that should really be a place he can go in private so that's ok

I've never kept turtles. I just look at them when I go to the LFS, and they are always on top of each other under the light. I dunno....I can think of better uses for this tank. They will definitely scratch it up also. Every tank i see that housed turtles had scratched up glass. I can't imagine an acrylic turtle tank!
