I have lots of pond fish, from tiny .5" minnow size to large fat goldfish. I want to add some aquatic turtles, but I found the pet store sells goldfish as food for the turtles. Are there any species that won't eat fish?

  • What area/climate are you from? It would exclude some kinds in general. The most popular like red eared sliders eat fish when they are young and do not when they are older. Please inform yourself about the right pond architecture to have a save environment for turtles (for example that they could walk from bottom to top when they in the morning are too cold to swim) – Allerleirauh Aug 5 '20 at 19:09
  • I am in climate region 6. – Village Aug 6 '20 at 16:24

I've found that most of the land turtles are herbivorous. Tortoises are herbivorous too. So they won't eat fish.

    Welcome to Pets, this answer is a bit short, maybe you could please include some essence from the source directly into the answer and mark it as quotation? It is close to being a link-only answer and this is sub-optimal. – lila Jan 8 at 17:36
