Turtles are meant to eat fish species I'd let it rest. Get another tank for a betta cover it well and set them side by side for a safe coexsistence.

The point has pretty much been made. Last year I gave away my turtle to a lady with a heated outdoor pond. The pond contains large koi fish and frogs. The first thing I thought about was the fish. It's just a turtle natural instinct.

t kind of sucks that the turtle just can't respect the fact of beauty and leave it alone.


Turtles arent humans and dont view life as rainbows and fairy dust.
Only humans view bettas as beautiful, every other creature sees them as little, deformed meals. Basically we have created bettas to be the easiest snack in the world. (brightly coloured, painfully slow, and stupid in regards to predators. Perfect for easy spotting and catching)

Im sure anyfish you put in there even the fast ones will live their lives in fear of being eaten by a giant predator...

Just get a new tank if you want bettas and tetras

I must admit I was a little naive to think such a think now that I look back on it.
