I kept a red eared slider for several years. Started off with a 55 gallon but she quickly outgrew that. Bought one of those pre-formed plastic ponds, probably about 200 gallons, dug a hole for it and put her outside with a pond filter and pond heater. I made a probably 10 ft diameter wall around it with some big landscaping stones stacked 2 high.

She got as big as a dinner plate, and yes, she would often come out of the pond and sun herself, but would run back in the pond whenever anyone walked by.

One day, she was gone. I have no idea what happened to her. It's possible she may have found a way to climb over the wall I made, or perhaps a dog got her, but it would have to be a big dog to carry her off. I never found her, alive or dead. Two of my neighbors are farmers, and they both have big ponds, so I hope she made it to one of them.

Good luck, but don't count on that 55 gallon to be adequate for long.
