Taiwan Turtle ID

I inherited three turtles
(1 min 34 sec YouTube video) from the previous tenant in my house in Taipei, Taiwan. I believe the one resting on a rock is a Brazilian turtle, but I have had no success trying to identify the other two, which are very shy.
I have checked Discover Life
and scanned through Google Images (keywords: Taiwan turtles, China turtles), but that didn't help. Have I overlooked an obvious reference?
The two big ones eat standard turtle food; I have never seen the smallest one eat anything. Their pond breeds mosquitoes, but I don't know if it is safe to raise carp or fish in this pond to gobble up larvae. Can anybody help out? Maybe I could find some other way to handle the mosquito problem?
