Default NL100 shallow 30bb: turned bottom trips on a wet board vs a strong lead from a fish

Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $1.00 BB (6 handed)

UTG ($108.55)
MP ($41.70)
CO ($44.95)
Hero (Button) ($40)
SB ($28.75)
BB ($34)

Preflop: Hero is Button with 9, 10
3 folds, Hero bets $2.50, SB calls $2, BB calls $1.50

Flop: ($7.50) J, 10, Q (3 players)
SB checks, BB checks, Hero checks

Turn: ($7.50) 10 (3 players)
SB bets $7.50, 1 fold, Hero ?

The SB is loose-passive fish, the BB is an unknown fishy player, somewhat aggressive across 23 hands.
So, on the flop I decided to not cbet cause if called I'm too likely to be behind, and if raised by BB I'm just lost cause have no clue how crazy he is. Do you think it's a big mistake to check behind here?

As played, what do you do on the turn, and what is the plan for the river in case of calling?

Checking behind here is standart imo.
I shove the turn - and it's not even close!!! So many draws he can call us with... And we go broke against a better hand anyways.

... all those hands you are posting: Seems like you don't adjust to your stack size enough. Top-pair etc. gets a lot stronger, if you are playing for 40BB and not 100BB.
It's over now it's unbelievable
I just feel like a diamond on a crown
I'm so happy it's unbelievable
Now - I just feel newborn

yeah, sometimes I have a feeling I'm doing a bit smth wrong regarding those stack sizes... though the results do not support this most often... like today I folded TP2ndK after isoing 3way cause the flop action was too suspicious... can post it if you like

for this hand, I shoved to see his Ks9s, basically I was in doubts is it "close" or correct move.

Flop standard.

I like flatting turn a bit more as a pot usually does not indicate a draw as much 3way. Shoving is okay too though.
