Uhm id say around 30 gallons. He only kept it half full. I'm not saying its ethical, my point was it doesn't need dechlorinated water

Hi! I have a RES male 4 years in 125 g tank. We always dechlorinate the water because turtles have sensitive eyes and as precaution we do this. His tank is almost full with a large basking area. RES love to swim and unless you have a juvenile I would not keep in a 30 g it will not provide a "quality" habitat to a mature RES.

Please re read all of my posts. You will find that none of them were talking about me, or what i do. And i was not recomending that size tank for a turtle.

And i guess youre right about the dechlorinator thing, just because it didnt die doesnt mean it was comfortable
