Hi.

Just been to get some more plants and noticed that the shop was selling freshwater mussels that were big. Has anyone tried them in a turtle setup or have any opinion on the matter?

Thanks

Opinion rather than experience, I confess, but as I recall, FW mussels need really good water quality and low-ish temps- so I can't quite see it working in a turtle tank.

I've had them before, not with turtles but in a big pond. They really need VERY DEEP, VERY CLEAN water, so I agree with Ron, I doubt it would work. And if they die, the mess is terrible.

Thanks for the replies.

Just curious about if they could work in a turtle setup or not but by the sounds of things no!
