If you measured them from the scute behind the neck down to the end of the scute behind the tail and didn't include the curve of the shell, how big would each of them be?

I have one RES who I believe is about 3 years old.

Let's see...one of your RES is about 5 inches long, and the other is about 8 inches long. How big a tank do you have them in? (At 10 gallons of tank per inch of shell length, they're in about a 130 gallon tank?)
