Re: need basking help

a think you could do is to buy some corkbark online and place that in your tank. you could buy some suction cups and use them too stay in place. thats more on the 10-15 dollar route though

Re: WHAT SHOULD I GET!?!?!

if your tank wont hold 2 in the long run i\'d look into a bunch of apple snails. they\'re not as messy and are realy interesting.

Re: turtles and fish?

if there small enough, theyll eat em. it might take a really big fish to not get eaten, though. if you get a bunch of cheap guppies or something theyll eat them fast but then slow down.

Re: just wondering

i know:) you might want to put your uvb and heat lamp on a timerso it runs a 9-10 hour cycle. you should turn the lights off at night. they sleep under water and hold their breath for a long time. they get a breath when they need it. if you turn on their lights they will wake up! hope this helps

Re: how cold is too cold?

well, first thing is to get a thermometer. you NEED the water between 75-80 and the basking spot 7-10 degreese warmer. you should get a heater of some type because i dont think the light will heat up the water enough.

Re: Sort of Confused

i wouldnt \"clean\" the tank that much, instead, just change out like half the water a week, this will keep the bacteria alive and help eliminate the ammonia and nitrites whitch i think is making youe water cloudy.

Re: tank for two

for most aquatic turtles it is 10 gallons of water per inch of shell (length) you might get a big tank and use something to seperate the two turtles if they start killing eachother. make sure they have a uvb light, basking spoti and basking light.

you dont NEED to raise the eggs but it might be fun. a better way of talking about your turtles is to say their size (shell length) so how big are they?

Re: Turtle Travel

if flying, be sure to ask the airlines if you can carry it on. that is the best bet for your turtle not getting hurt.
