They tend to do best in a tank with other softshell turtles. Preferred substrate is sand. When not basking softshell turtles like to lay buried in the sand with just their neck and head sticking out. Deep water is a must with Florida softshell turtles as they are fantastic swimmers with their aero dynamic bodies. Preferred water temperatures are in the mid 70s Fahrenheit. Basking temperatures should be kept in the mid to high 80s Fahrenheit. Unlike most aquatic water turtles, softshell turtles are mostly carnivores for their entire life. In their natural setting they eat fish, insects, insect larva, worms, crawfish and even large frogs.
