  • I am not sure, I know they will fight and possible kill other fish. I wouldn't really risk it if I were you.

  • Yes but your beta will not last too long.turtles are carnivores and awesome fish hunters.... ifyou want a turtle in your indoor fish pond I suggest feeder goldfish but you will have to float your feeders in and clean the tank often because fish death clouds the water fast

  • The turtle will eat the fish. May not happen for a while but they are great "fishermen" ..

  • No, the turtle will eat the fish eventually.

  • What kind of turtle? Most of them need a place to get out of the water, they need oxygen to survive, fish don't breathe air! I would say unless it is a sea turtle, then most likely it is a bad idea!
