I'm not sure about the temperature, but the pond should be moderately deep with a log or rock of some sort for the turtle to sun itself on- also be sure to make a fence around your pond to keep him from escaping! Good luck with your pond.

Okay so quick question then, in your previous thread you said it would be a “red eared slider” that you’re adding to your pond, is it a red eared slider or a yellow belly slider?

So my pet store was selling red eared slider but they stopped to do that and transfered to yellow belly sliders

Yellow-bellied slider - Wikipedia

The article contains temperature requirements for captive specimens.

I suspect they can tolerate much lower temps, as they naturally range as far north as Virginia and Maryland - not a lot of warm water there in the winter
