Is said that the sharks,and scats prefer slightly brackish water (salt) that your other fish may not enjoy but I have not kept scat's or sharks.
I believe your turtle would appreciate a place to haul itself out of the water to bask under a light that was designed for this purpose or to be taken from the tank and allowed to bask on warm dry area for three to four hours per day. I have only kept snapping turtles so you may wish to check on this for yourself.
Your fish look to be healthy but I fear that Beef heart on a regular basis, could lead to digestive problems for the fish and water quality issues. I also would not offer feeder fish unless they were raised by you. Often feeder fish are kept in poor conditions and this often leads to sick feeders that can pass on disease to your fish should you purchase feeders that are sick.
You may know much of this already and my apologies if this is so. Just trying to offer some things to consider.
i never tried to feed my shark heart beef but i am planning to get for him , this guy when i first got him in may , he was small and he used to be eat that food in the picture , and when it was feeding time he ate alot of it , but he saw something much better changed his mind a fish fit inside his moth so , in the night very dark place he starts attacking the fish , so i got ride of all small fish , after that he didn't like to eat the food i give him , he only likes to eat live food and food goes in the bottom , i tried to feed him the food in the picture with closing the light other fish couldn't see the food , he was smelling it he was so close to eat but he changed his mind , other shark started to eat the food cuz they can smell it to .
so you saying i have to get for the turtle something to let him lay on it ? ,
and the scat i have to get ride of them ?
