Potted Plants

Post by Duke Of Earl » Mon Dec 12, 2016 2:29 pm

Im considering getting some potted plants for the tank, give the terrapin somewhere to hide behind when he needs it.
Are there any plant types to steer clear from, or are any aquatic potted plants suitable?

I think all aquatic plants should be ok but my two would certainly eat them!!!

Almost all readily available aquatic plants are fine, but do check the LIST OF POISONOUS PLANTS if you spot something interesting looking :)
0.1.0 - Chelydra serpentina
*.*.* - Graptemys ouachitensis
*.*.* - Pseudemys concinna
*.*.* - Pseudemys nelsoni
