Turtles instead of fish

has anyone ever tried using turtles in an aquaponics set up or using their scoot(feces) for fertilizer? Have wanted to try it but haven’t made it that far but we have 2 red eared sliders that are about 7 years old and bigger than my fists. Curious about if the scoot would hold good nutritional value for the plants .

a close friend of mine has a pond that is dry near half of every year. it’s full of turtles. when spring is over he drains that pond and plants in the bottom. he has had some very good crops with huge fat buds

i have no clue what made his bud so fat and good but to see that pond bottom standing in 12 foot plants was a cool site.

two Hindu plants (one male one female) and one HGCC Gorilla Glue #4 Fem… she grows few and all outside like they are wild. both Females are beautiful with rich dark seeds, she wants the seeds. they all grew in direct sunlight since March. we wrapped them up so the seeds couldn’t fall all over the ground so they are in Die Stage. at least make a little Kief to roll my Moon Rocks in
