Three Yellow Bellied Sliders and Tank / Equipment

Post by andydckent » Mon Jul 09, 2018 1:26 pm

Hello,

I've recently moved house and I need to find a new home for my three yellow bellied sliders. They are all female (I think), about 11/12 years old. They live in a 240l (should really be larger) plastic pond in my dads basement. They have two UVB lights (one is also a heat light), a water heater and a powerful external eheim filter.

Looking for a new home for all three. If you want them all you can have all their equipment too. All I ask in return is that you can demonstrate that you will be able to look after them properly.

I am located in Edinburgh but can help transport them within reason.

Thanks

Andy

Way too far away I'm afraid, hope you find someone to take them

That's unfortunate Neil. Where about are you? Is there anyone else around that is further north?

I'd consider building them a pond in my garden here as it is the sunniest part of Scotland but I'm afraid that (this year excepted) its probably not realiably hot enough for them.

Kidderminster, Worcestershire...

I have mine in a pond here and they do fine over winter, but you could have a small winter setup in a garage if you have one. I agree that most summers are pretty dire here in the UK, and I know people who have a pond inside a greenhouse (or Rom with his biodome!) to make an outside setup that allows for more stable temps.
