I posted this in the RES forum too but here goes:
I'd like to try an outdoor pond for my slider. I was thinking of using one of the larger stock tanks, measuring 5X2X2 for the water section, and allowing the turtle to hibernate outside, since I'm within their natural range. I live in Amarillo TX, plant zone 5, with occasional drops in the temperatures to the teens--but it's rare for more than a couple of days to go by with below freezing highs.
Provided that I have a substrate, or at least a box under water filled with sand/dirt, does that sound feasible? And if so, are there any particular fish I should put in the pond for him to munch on, or plants? Or anything to specifically avoid?
