    Nice setup! What kind of turtle is it? Water looks a bit low though.

    Thanks, this is my first real tank, I had this guy in a starter 20g tank for 2 weeks, then got this one. We've had the little guy for all of a month now. He is our first turtle and want to do right by him Posted Image



    I was told he was a Pelomedusa the water is roughly 6-7 inches deep. I was a little shy to put more in as Ive read they are not great swimmers. It is recommened according to the care sheets Ive read, that the water level should be no more than 1.5 times his shell length.

    Hey there BrianL,

    Very nice setup you have there. I am also planning to get a 71 gallon tank, and make a homemade plexiglass on the top of aquarium dock for him :) Also i wanted to ask,what is the back of the aquarium covered with ? And is taht a cuttlebone i see floating ? About the plants/decorations you have there in your tank, are the plants real ? or just plastic, bought from petshop? Have you used Exo terra light dome and can you commenton it ? Thanks in advance for reply.
