Not sure about the turtle? Sounds like you already have your hands full with the 2 you have. Just noticed you say in your Sig "all living things day bulb" Is that the only bulb you have for your turtles?
1 Male Mississippi Map/Mississippi
1 Female RES/Slidy.
1 DBT White Concentric Female/ Lucky
1 DBT Male/ Spots
(Housed in the same tank)

300 gallon indoor stock tank, FX6 & FX5 filters. Mega-Ray 100w UVB bulb.

Plus you will likely have to separate male RES and they might be a little to small to tell yet. I would think about land turtles or lizards.... or just a bigger tank :)

No, a stripe necked musk turtle is not a good tankmate for RES. they have different living requirements, and res get almost 3 times the size. Turtles in general do not need 'friends', they are not social animals and only really need company when mating.
