Would you be able to separate them if necessary? Is the DBT wild caught?

Keep in mind male and female RES can be very aggressive but yes, you can try them together (according to http://www.austinsturtlepage.com/Care/cs-northdbt.htm)

K thx guys unfortunately I cannot post some pictures due to the fact it's 20 min away but I can describe their enclosure and the turtles aswell so their in about 100 gallon tank with 4 basking spots the guy said he uses some zoo med products mostly so their fed the hatching zoo med pellets water about 1 inch deep and the turtles dbt is the ornate species I think they have very nice coloring and the turtles are also hatching they have about 30 turtles of res dbt. Map turtle and Reeves mixed altogether with. 5 feeder fish(rosy reds) and once the shop owner showed me the parents of the hatching and incubating eggs the good thing is I won't be getting them until December so the hatching will grow and my RES sadly aren't growing that much and the prices are $29.99 for all turtles except the RES which is $19.95 and I forgot to mention I was gonna get the turtle its own enclosure then once big enough with my res and if u would like to know what I will be getting them ask in a reply

If they're selling the diamondbacks as 'ornate' diamondbacks...and they're any less than $400 each, they're lying, they're not ornates.
