Sorry for your lost. Turtles , Tiny can live in solitude and be very happy ! Gives him more time with you instead of sharing time with another. Also another new turtle may have to be separated if aggressive to Tiny or Tiny to them.

Sorry to hear it. I agree, you can keep him alone. Male RES usually need to be separated from others anyway.

Thanks For The Advice But I Am Getting A Cooter.
They Will Be Separated At All Times Except For Cleaning Their Tanks, And For Taking Them Out On Walks.

Good luck! Keep in mind that cooters are usually much larger than RES.
