Shell Tank

res and softshell?

both are still small. is it ok to put them in the same tank?

NO. Soft shells have very delicate shells and are at risk of infection from bites, scratches of other turtles and also from cuts received from abrasive substrates and basking areas. Soft shells are also aggressive and should not be housed in a community tank, not even with their own species. RES are aggressive also and both are territorial. Ultimately it's up to you, but I wouldn't!

From ATP's caresheet: COMMUNITY HABITAT

Turtles of the United States & Canada1 Page 120 states spiny softshells are aggressive toward their own species, the larger tend to dominate the smaller in captive interactions (invariably involving a considerable amount of biting) & yet they’re usually not pugnacious with hard-shelled turtles. In Keeping and Breeding Freshwater Turtles7 Page 127, Russ Gurley notes they are somewhat aggressive, especially to smaller softshelled turtles. Bill Ninesling of Indian River Reptile, Inc. once told me they’re often tail nippers. Tom noted there have been those that have had success keeping them with Musk Turtles, Sliders, Cooters, Map Turtles and Painted Turtles. He has kept 2 separate male spiny softshells with hard-shelled tank mates (but not each other) without problems. Some people do mix them. Visual barriers in large tanks may help but no home aquarium is large enough to thwart a determined aggressor. Softshells’ thin noses are vulnerable to fights over food, & the slim, soft shells are easily injured. Such injuries are infection-prone.

We recommend keeping softies alone or in spacious enclosures with strong filtration, no crowding & no aggressive tank mates. Watch closely when first mixing.
