Hi, seems like a silly question but I just need to know if two male diamond Back Terrapins (any subspecies) would live together peacefully if not could a male and a female live together in a big enough tank.

I had no problems keeping two males together in the same tank.
problems began when I put a female in with my two males they started fighting over her.
Male and female can work but I wouldn't do it the male will harass the female constantly for breeding

In my opinion best to keep alone or same sex pairs

Groups of 1 male 3 females also work

Thanks, I had seen people keeping 2 DBTs together but it wasn't clear of the gender, I will definitely consider getting this species. :)
