Question Does anyone know anything about red-eared slider turtles?

http://boise.craigslist.org/pet/1818749537.html
I don't know--I'm tempted, but I most likely won't get them. I used to want a turtle but I haven't thought about them in years, plus the water changes would be a lot along with my bettas, and I'd have to get my parents OK. Still . . .

also if you do get the turtle will you private message me about it and im asking you to brag about it lol you know just let me know because im really interested :)

I know that another member on this forum, TeenyTinyTofu, has a red eared slider. You can ask her about them.

I know that they're omnivores and eat meat like snails, shrimp, goldfish as well as cuttlebones for calcium, and some types of aquatic plants. They need to be kept at around 80 degrees F, can live up to thirty years in captivity, can be aggressive on occasion, need frequent water changes, etc. Is there anything else?

Just know that a 30g tank is NOT enough to support two full grown turtles. I'm not exactly sure how big you would need for two adult turtles, but it'd have to be big!

I know . . . it was just kind of a hey-what-if thing. I'm not really going to get them.

ohh okay well if you did then i would recommend at LEAST a 55 gallon tank for two full grown turtles...:) also if u just wanted one it would need at LEAST a 30 gallon because turtles need a lot of swimming space and whatever you do dont put two males together. they will fight even in a 55 gallon. ok:)
