Turtles will generally not be able to catch or eat a healthy
fish.  Stun the fish first if you want the turtle to eat it. 
Better to feed fish heads and fins from the fish market, they
are cheaper and the turtle can get them easier.  Keep your
turtle warm, 78F water and a rock to climb out on with a lamp
over it so the rock surface is 80F plus (up to 85 or so).  Good
