Default Help and advice please

Hi am new to this forum . Have kept koi for a couple years now and always liked turtle and now my daughter has taken a shine to them so thinking of getting 1 or 2 but after a crash course in keeping and caring for them.
Can they go in with my koi (2000 gal unheated)
If not what gal of water do they need to build a separate pond .
What sort of heat ,filtration ,water chem do they require
And many more questions to come . Any help is greatly appreciated. Like to do all research to make sure all animals in our care thrive

We kept a yellow belly terrapin in with koi and a sturgeon. She absolutely thrived! And they all got on too, she never bit them or even went for them, she even had her own basking spot to come out on to bask so yes it can be done
