most stores sell them , but be careful they need dirty water to filterfeed.

i dont think theres a type of FW squid, and 96L is too small for one, that tanks about 25g.

Squid, great that you want a diversity of animals, but please be sure to research thoroughly. You will find many, many incompatibilities.

and you can try the guppies with a turtle but they may get eaten

I put a turtle in a tank with two Oscars... That lasted about 2 hours the turtle just chased the Oscars around...... 110 gallon...... I had to move the turtle to his own 55 gallon and use goldfish as turtle feeders....
