yar, tap water is fine, just cycle your tank so the bacteria can culture in the filter sponges. But yar, I don\'t suggest you change all your water at once... its only safe to change about 1/3 water at one time... unless u do buy neutralizers. Because turtles are not like fish and they do not breath...

My big turtle used to hide n run away from me if I picked him out of his tank. But in the past few years I started to take him out more and let him walk around my room more often and he adapted to it and is not that scared to go out of his tank no more.

Actually the the basking rock is not glued to the support poles. Thanx for the tip! I will look into it!

It should be ok. I used thick plastic pvc typa tubes taken from my old co2 filter and buried into 2-3 inches of heavy rock. Plus the plastic grid in the back which also holds it up.
