that would be a good thing toget is a timer for your light. that way your turtle has some sense of night and day

also you can even use one of them computer lamps that move around and just stick a 60-100watt light bulb in there...eventually they will bask on there own..

hope it helps.

yes you NEED a basking area. it helps the turtle get the vitamins it needs for its skin. they do not like to be in the water 24/7 and u need to give them somewhere to rest. but u need a basking area. even if its just a rock right now, and u can even use a regular 60Watt lightbulb, 100Watt would be b...

i did the same thing. i figured that i wouldnt have to clean the tank as much if i got one of them. actually it was a waste of $2.17. lol . i NEVER see the fish, and he always hides in the rocks. then you gotta buy the thing foos, which u drop in the tnaks, and after a while the foos starts to absor...

sounds like a good idea. also you can get like what i got, is a little stick-on "island" as i call it, that goes on the side of that tank and they just sit on it. nothing to fall or crash on the poop lil guys

algae

i have 2 baby cooters, and the tank was getting a little messy so i added one of the algae eaters in it, but the stupid thing only sleeps...my turtles never even see the thing...he hides 24/7, but maybe once the turltes grow, the poor fish might have a bad life, but for now its fine :)
