:I guess I'd like to know about either one. We'll probably be getting alligator snappers only though.
:::I'm curious as to how many adults might fit comfortably in that size pond. The surface area would be around 320 square feet (18X17.5). Max. depth around 3'.
::Alligator Snapper or Common Snapper?
I don't Know What maximum is for Loggerheads, but my outdoor Loggerhead pond is 60x20 and I house 3.7 adults in it in the summer. I bring them indoors in the winter and keep them at 50 degrees F. as it is too cold here for too long of time. It's 15 degrees below zero right now and that is not including the wind chill. Common Snappers, I keep 40 adults in a round pond that is 60 feet in diameter, and they live in there year round and seem to do fine. Lynn
