softshell turtles...

Can anyone tell me anything about Korean softshell turtles? I have a small one, 3 1/4 inches long, I'm looking to make it as fat and happy as it could be, but getting it to eat is difficult. It only likes fresh killed fish, but it's too slow and lazy to catch the small "feeder" fish I have in the tank with it. Also, would a 10 gallon aquarium be enough room for it or do I need to go bigger? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

i have raised many florida soft shell turtles. 10 gal is fine for now, but im sure it will out grow that in a year or so. Just keep the fedder fish in the tank with him, try putting a little sand on the bottom of the tank soft shells love burring themselves in the sand with only there heads out , like snapping turtles they are ambush preditors and its normal for your little guy not to chase around gold fish, and try putting some ghost shrimp in the tank for feeders. also use some sort of full spectrum lighting, a growing turtle will greatly benifit from that. also try droping a chricket in the water your soft shell might go for it. hope everything stays well with your turtle, and remember even tho soft shells spend most of there life in the water they still need an area to come out of the water and bask.
