The bigger one might be territorial. Since the one is small I would probably separate them. The little one could loose a tail or limbs If attacked.

Just to be safe I would separate them. If a tail is bitten off it won't grow back. Could you send a photo if possible.

Baby sitting turtle

I have 3 turtles, two cats (one is a kitten), and fish. I'm only 15. I've actually lost a turtle due to aggression. He was a western painted. He got his tail bit off. Then feet and died a year later.

Not too far. Do you have a fish tank as well as a turtle tank?

I have fish in my 55 gallon that turtle leaves alone and a large pleco and a crayfish

It's a pretty good turtle set up

Can't get fish because I'm off to army I. Two months and dad can't help but kill fish he is a fish killer

I mean I already have a duckling luckily it will be big before I go lol so that way less easy to lose in the house

My turtle tank set up Is a 45 gallon long tank. I've never had much luck with putting fish in the tank. I've never actually put fish in with the extent of them living. I often buy feeder fish for the turtles. Some of the feeder fish the turtles just can't catch and they get big. When it comes to cleaning the tank I usually take out too much water and the shock kills them.
