Looks really good.

I like the UV hut, I'm thinking I'll end up with one of those outside one day.

Yes it does have larger large feet, It sits so proud on its rock looking around with everything hanging out it's shell lol

Does anyone have a good suggestion for a plant that terrapins can eat but would look nice indoors?
Around the back walls of my pond I have now removed the ornaments and put long thin plantpots, I want to put something in them that looks good and would hang in water, something that terrapins can eat.

Any idea's?

Thanks for that, the Monkey flower - mimullus looks a nice plant! will the terrapins actually eat it as would be nice if something growing they can munch on lol

Also, do you know if there is any plant that spreads like poison ivy but not poison ivy but what the terrapins would enjoy munching on?
