How many turtles did you get? I wouldn't put too many males from eaxh species together. Also, don't put a lot of males with a small amount of females b/c they could hound them to death for mating reasons. I would say maybe 3-4 turtles per tank(maybe 55 gallons or larger). I have an eastern mud and a common musk and I use gravel for a substrate. Rocks were piled up so that they would have a hiding place and a place to get outta the water. I wouldn't put more then 6-7" of water in each tank if they're adults. If they're hatchlings, I'd say go with 3-4" of water. You can feed them worms, minnows, Reptomin, shrimp, and other various cooked meats. If you want to explore more on them, go to this website(www.austinsturtlepage.com) and look under "caresheets". It'll list the species that you have and give info on keeping them.
O yea, if you don't have enough room for them, you can send em my way hehe.
