    Just a little update,
    first I find it funny that all the people I know on here with turtles (or something related) aren't from the US , so I needed to do just a little research on this, anyway...

    the law in the US is turtles cannot be sold under law until above 4" unless for scientific/ educational purposes, but since no one will be checking to make sure, I will be fine. According to someone on another forum, fish stores sell them to people as "for scientific and educational purposes only." The reason sales under 4" are restricted are for salmonella, kids would put turtles in their mouth and catch it. I'm not going to handle my turtle much and when I change water/ handle it I'll be sure to wash my hands. Anyway (a word that I find I constantly use)
    I am also interested in building a little outdoor habit for when I get a turtle (or at least hopefully get one). I'm thinking of using a kiddie pool filled with dechlorinated WARM water and a little area to bask.

    Does anyone know what size tank a mud/musk (pretty similar) would need, what about a pair?

    How many could a 48x13x17, 40 gallon long fit?

    Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. Mud or musk would not need a water bowl but they do need water to swim in.

    I would likely limit myself to 2 in a tank that size. I would however try to get a tank that is a little wider. they do get to 6-8 inches and 13 doesnt give much room to turn on.

    I keep mine in a 16ft x 16 ft pond in the garden. (but they romm the entire garden and lay their eggs everywhere.) They will soon have access to a second pond as well that is yet to be fully filled measuring 20ft x 20ft (more or less).
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    Ok, thanks William, I'm looking at a lot of different tank options right now and all help helps.

    Consider looking for used tanks. Since you will only fill part of it with water you might find a true bargain on a tank that leaking near the top or has brooken bracing.

    Yep, all the tanks I've been considering are used (the 40 was from a local fish forum I'm part of, all the others are from Craigslist). I'm kinda hoping I get a tank I can put a couple turtles in for my birthday.

    Are there any tank mates that can go with turtles (in a big enough space)?

    Caimans ;-)

    Fish is not a good option. anything that would work would require a lot bigger tank.

    Would it be ok to have a tank that leaks at the bottom and then put a land area instead of water area there?
