Turts new home

Post by chuck » Mon Jan 31, 2011 3:29 pm

This is my new 260 litre tank for my two turts. The basking area at the top is there old home. They seem happier with more room to swim, just need a few more plants and things for them to explore.

Looks great, I had a vision 450 tank, and thought it looked great (although same problem as you with the backing never being tall enough!). I'd consider some sort of terranium backing paper or similar for the basking area, at least until they feel more comfortable using it...unless of course they already are!

Hi sorry for the delay in posting. New job and verry little time but they went up after we put the background up. They seem to like it.
