I have two baby DBT's, about 1.5in or so, 13 weeks old. They are in a 55 gallon aquarium and will be until they are abour 4-5in then they will move to bigger. My question is, if I get a large tiger oscar, or jack dempsey, (3.5in range) that is already bigger than the babies significantly and will stay bigger based on growth rate, will they all coexist until I move the turtles when they are 4in or so? I care about the turtles, fish are cheap, mostly decoration, will the fish ever hurt the turtle, or is it just that the fish may die? I have one placastamas in there now for cleaning purposes in the 2.5in range and the turtles don't seem to care, and the one time one of the turtles did get a little curious, as soon as the fish swam away it got frightened off as well. I have heard never to add, fish, but then I hear of people that have no problems as long as they grow up together, and I'm wondering if a measly 5 dollar fish might possibly liven up the aquarium.
