Looks more manageable and possibly safer. Can clearly see the basking lamp.

Go on, tell me, what is the device on top of the log?

a nice setup for a hatchling tank. The only thing I would point out is that gravel can cause problems as it can get eaten. Slate chips look equally as affective and natural, sample bags can be bought online (ebay) for £3-4.
Apart from this small thing (I hate to pick holes ~blsh ) it is looking good there with you. ~fn-hdbng

I would guess that is a zoo-med 60w basking light. Just a Guess. ~wsltng

Hi

Looks good from what i can see but i would say one thing tho, why don't you get a floating bock instead of all that graval and then your terrapin well have more swimming space.
