Turtles and Convicts

What would be the effect if the convicts were added to my turtle tank ... what would happen, the turtles are well fed but obviously would not turn down live food (fry) however I do not think they would attack the adult convicts but would the adult convicts attack the turtles ? I have read that many turtles are fine with larger size fish and i think the convicts suit this catagory.

if you want to risk your fish tha I dont see a problem . I know some turtles have a large goldfish in teh tank becuase they never ate it but your turtles might treat the fish like a new toy and kill it. also keep in mind that the water conditions needed for the fish might make the turtle uncomfortable and make sure teh fish cant hurt teh turtel if the turtle trys to eat it
I think turtles are most comfortable near neutral

If you really want to try it, I suppose you could, but I wouldn't reccomend it. The turtles would likely eat the adults, and the fry for sure.

Convicts (and most other fish) = turtle food....just the way it is, I am afraid.
