Hello, I want to construct a pond for my three yellow bellied sliders ( 8-9 inches each). How deep should the pond be? And how many gallons?

What's the weather like in your region? Freezing temps?

Are they all females? Do they get along? Minimum would be about 300 gallons, depending on location/shade/sunlight but I would try to get much larger... maybe 1500 gallons or so.

Slider are great swimmers, so 2-3 feet deep is fine.
