What sort of turtle do you have?If it is a waterturtle then it drinks the water it sits in and that is why it is important to keep it clean.

I keep a water bowl in my boxies enclosure, its true that they will mess it up a lot, but it's so easy to empty and clean thats its no big deal, and that way if they feel thirsty then they can drink clean water. somedays It gets changed like 4 times.[xx(]
