i have sliders in my outside pond and i keep chebukins with mine without any problems,but you must be aware that there is a possibility that they could become food.

I know someone who tried goldfish and had their tails,fins and even the head attacked, I think you'd need fairly fast swimming fish.

You should be fine with most of the larger pond fish. I keep koi, Rudd and goldfish with mine. Obviously there is a risk they may get attacked but that your choice. On first introduction my koi had there fins nips but they was left alone after that, the Rudd however have never been touched as they are faster so may be worth trying them first.

Yeah the larger the fish the better the chance of survival.

My turtles are housed in-doors as they are still young. (And UK weather sucks!)

They live with four plecs! 2 Small, about the same size as the turtles. The other two plecs are easily twice the size of the turtles, and they get along just fine
