All turtles are expensive to maintain by virtue of the fact that they need good filtration, lighting etc There are none that stay small enough to stay in a fish tank or similar unless you are talking of something like a 90 gallon one and even then it would not give the same husbandry requirements as a pond.
Many people do keep turtles in cramped conditions but then some people keep horses in stables and dogs in kennels :(

Stinkpot musk turtles stay small and are very good beginner turts but you must research research research before hand and have the enviroment they need (which can indeed be a fish tank) :lol:

I know sod-all about these!
So from reading above......Once your terrapin out grows your fish tank you can just lob them outside into a pond? Bit harsh isnt it dont they get cold in winter?
