Hey,

Dumb question, how do you feed your turtles in a pond...do you just throw the food in the pond and let them forage...is it super messy using this method?

More of just a curiousity question this time. You said I with spotteds I can filter it like i would for koi. What type of filtration is needed for a larger turtle species...like a group of Blandings Turtles?

Can Blandings and spotteds be kept together? What size pond now for like a 2.3 spotted and a 1.2 blandings? DO not have blandings now but have often considered them so if I am going to do a pond for the spotteds did not know if I could kill two birds with one stone so to say.

Any other suggestions/recommendations are appreciated. Still have not heard on what type of plants to put in the pond.

Thanks for all your help, Scott
