I have a 40 gallon tank filled only around 25 gallons of water if they don't stop fighting I'm gonna have to put the one that keeps fighting in the CSUN pond.

I would assume CSUN is the California State University Northridge , Yes ?
RES's are an invasive species in California !
Call a shelter , reptile rescue , Humane Society but NOT in the university pond !

First they don't have / own the pond! I called 1-818-677-1200 your school and notified them of your intent. That pond belongs to the county according to the assessor's office and follows California state law. Res turtles are invasive "NOT" Native ! No permits for a RES rescue pond on campus. I also talked to your local Humane Society who took an interest in what you stated on the internet ( gave them the link) .
California has some pretty good animal right laws.
