theres gravel underneath for drainage (dont want to drown the worms) and screen on top to help keep the soil, and franklin out of the gravel not sure how well it should work... im running out of height on this tank far to quickly though theres a 2liter bottle and a poweraide bottle to make a hill, it seperates the cool end from the basking end of the tank... theres also a slight say... 1" in 10 feet slope to the base running towards the basking end

IMAG0055.jpg
semi final grade on the soil, ill try and get a good pic of the cave entrance... not totally happy with it right now but... ill straighten it up some while im planting

IMAG0058.jpg

I really like the very last photo: plants but a bit of open space too. Lots of hard work!

ya... the bushes should grow quick i plan on keeping them trimmed off the floor so eventually franklin can walk under them... it was a pain, but makes me anxious to get money saved to build a new bigger better one haha

I love this table. I can't wait to have the time and space to big a table nicer than the re-purposed book case I have now.

haha im happy to have it... it definitely took allot of time (mostly due to mistakes blah) honestly, i went this route because i had this wood in scrap, i didnt have a book shelf (bookshelf was my first thought)
as far as room goes... well its honestly to big, yet i wish id gone bigger haha... theyre never big enough are they?

oh... and it does look like im going to loose all of the dandelions i planted... but the collard greens are sprouting up very nicely

well, pond is fully up and running, added a couple feeder fish, ghost shrip, and a crawdad for franklin to much at her leisure... if she eats the feeders think ill use the "filter" to house them for breeding

Looks great! Glad Franklin is getting settled. Hell, I'd be happy wintering in there!

Curious to hear how the fish in the pond go.. Ive been thinking about building something big enough with a filter rather than the stone "bowl" pond I have right now..

it seems to be working well.. the fish spend most of there time behind the pitcher... hiding from the crawdad and franklin, waters really not deep enough for fish and a crawdad... i should have gone deeper with the pond... ohh well ill fix it in a remodeling later on

well... the pond is a fail, the turtle jsut tracks in to much substrate, im not willing to loose enough land to make a pond big and deep enough to handle it all, everytime the crawdad moves the water clouds.... the gold fish and guppies are dead... not sure if franklin or the crawdad ate them... ill probably get a paint tray and set that up as a soaking area, just pull the craw dad and see if franklin wants to eat it on land... ill have to wait till i move her outside someday to give her a pond

srry.... well i used hostas, dandelion, grass, boxwood, honey suckle, various leaf lettuces, strawberrys, also tried some moses but they didnt last long... the lettuce and strawberrys dont last long, i grow them in a seperate container and add them into the tank as the turtles destroy them dandelions seem to be a favorite but thankfully my weed patch of a yard provides plenty of them
