Grr, I was interested in buying another baby turtle (a different type) from another website, called them to find out how big they get and such, and the guy said if you keep them in a smaller tank, w/ a good filter and keep the water level low, (and feed them well) they will not outgrow their environment. That can't be true-right?? :?

nope. And it's dangerous to try. Malnutrition and lack of a proper environment will stunt growth, but the turt won't be healthy and won't live nearly as long.
