that would be amazing as long as it doesnt get torn, also what your u need a pond filter for? you have a filter that comes with the pool

not likely that pool filter is meant to clean that entire pool, course it would never hurt, just trying to save you some money. :)

lol thats great.im gonna buy the one thats got the pvc edge and siding that really thick tarp type one. not the inflatable one. i figured if she isnt to violent i may try to make it a comunity pond and put some reds, yellow bellies, and some fish in with her. all depends on how she does tho. she kills anything that comes in her tank. very mean woman lol. but i do want to spoil her with a freaky huge pond. also i will have some picks of her in a few days when my fiance gets back from MS. see ya later.

i would definietly not put any other turtles in with her, only once in my life have i ever met a softshell that doesnt attack other turtles, maybe koi but i would plan on loosing a few

yeah i figured turtles wouldnt be a good idea. but i can handle losin some koi fish. i may get a few of them and a red tail cat. cause our pet store has 5 or six around ten inches or so. i may get two pools and set one up for her and the other up for some sliders. maps or maybe an alli snapper.

im actually finally getting a soft shell today! im pretty excited about it too this kinda just happened out of the blue i found one on kijiji for 40 bucks, actually i found two but the one never gave me a responce when i messaged him, oh well. but its just a yearling which is nice its only 3inchs. i hope its healthy im kinda concerned about it cause like anything you get online you never really know.

you must have a lot of space for so many large pools! that would be awesome for a alligator snapper
