    Has any kept any musk turtles known as stinkpots in there tank with other fish before? Will they be fine or will a musk try to eat my fish?

    I don't have experience with musk turtles specifically, but usually turtles don't do well with fish. They tend to chase fish and eat them when they catch them. They also are extremely messy, so it could cause some serious water quality issues for the fish.

    What size tank do you have and what fish are in it?

    72x122x37cm and just 2 electric blue rams, 1 blue ram, Angel fish, I work in an aquatics shop and I went to the wholesalers today and apparently they don't get big in size, just curious to know if anyone has had first hand experience with them as I find it more useful information than to just read up online, Iv heard turtles are messy, because they are fed food like chopped muscles etc. :)
