i finally removed the black gravel in my 125 gallon turtle/fish tank and replaced it with sand. I DO NOT OWN THE MUSIC IN THIS VIDEO.
I'm not sure what kind they are, but my mom had them in her pond in her yard (one of those build-yourself kind) and the two I took were 3 inches long. The last catfish has died since I made my first post this morning. Here are some pictures of it. I noticed it was REALLY slimy when I fished it out of the tank, and it had whitish yellow paches on its skin.
So in conclusion, it's a good idea to better research your pets before buying them. You should always know what kind of fish you are gettig before putting it in your tank. It seems as though you did the best you could for your turtle, as you did not realize what you were doing. I am sorry that you lost him, and good luck to you in the future.

All About Aquarium Fish: Pet Turtle in Fish Tank
Research what your species of turtle feeds on in natural habitat and then resemble that for your cage. It’s important that you force your turtle to eat actual food designed for them because it is full of vitamins they need. It is the with other treats and such. Try to also research nutrition to help make sure your reptile has proper health. General pet stores and even walmart sell turtle food that is getting better everyday. They have dried up worms that work descent but I suggest looking into some more natural foods. Live fish can’t be beat and it’s really not that hard to do. Most turtle owners keep live fish in their tank because they survive just fine. You will find that most turtles love live fish and having that natural protein available really benefits your turtle.Turtle tank 40 gallon breeder tank, Malaysian drift wood, artificial plants, rocks, sand, miss balls, 2 cascade 300 filters, purigen in filters, turtle dock, 2 RES, 2 tiger barbs, 1 Baja shark, 1 tetra, 2 Cory catfish, and Crystal Clear waterThe question comes up all the time if turtles need filters for their water. I highly advise using a filter just because the cleaner water gives your turtle a more healthy habitat to thrive in. Dirty waters can kill any aquarium species very fast. When buying a filter, always buy around 3-4 times the amount of water volume your aquarium actually is. Example, if your tank is 20 gallons .. You should buy a filter designed for 40 gallons. This will make your water more clean and save you hours of time cleaning the water by hand in your fish aquarium. Can I mix a turtle with other pet fish and have both in the same tank? I have a and was wondering if he would eat the fish it it came down to it..?
