    turtles can be difficult to keep over the long term. you need one heck of a filter cause they need HIGH quality water. ive never kept any for very long. i highly suggest checking out the www.kingsnake.com forums, lots of ppl with LOTS of years experiance there. i used to cruise the forums when i was heavily into snakes. still check them out from time to time.

    Painted turtles mostly because they were easy to get, and some stores painted their shells, then Red eared sliders and various others like map turtles and such

    Dunno if there are several species of snapper, but my friend's snapper was pushing 2 feet when he managed to get rid of it..

    Easiest small turtle will be some kind of mud turtle(including the popular stink pot). I think they max out at five, and four would be more common.
