would a painted turtle be ok in a betta tank
i recently agreed to take in a small painted turtle (right now he's abit over 2 inches) from a friend who's son was no longer caring for it and he is currently is now in a spare minibow 2.5g i have laying around and reading up info its recommended that he be in a 20g. i plan on getting a 20g long in the near future for my betta (in 2 or 3 wks) and now wondering if i can throw the two together or should i use the 10g that my betta is coming out of??
my current 10g has 1 betta, 3 otos, 2 mystery snails and a 5 malayasian trumpet snails though i thought i saw baby snails too.....which will all eventually go into the 20g once bought and cycled.
my 20g will be heated, filtered, soil substrate and pebble capped, starting out mildy planted and as time goes heavily planted
