Post any questions you have about a turtle indoor setup here. Or if you have a link to your indoor setup picture we would love to see it.

To who it may can help

IF anyone of you would kindly tell me how to setup a breeding ground for my turtle it would be very grateful.I need to find out if there is any difference between turtle living environment and breeding environment.
I know the lay their eggs in sand but what is the temperature I need to the sand to be at?

the temp needs to be between 80 and 85 degrees. (of the sand that is) they need to be in the water as this is the way they mate. but the sand needs to be accessible. that way they can go when they need to lay their eggs. mine are in the same habitat.....check out tayrn's aquarium......instead of rocks replace it with sand......

There\'s a place on this site that tells you how to breed the turtles and recomends a book. I didn\'t really look at all of it but it might be helpful.
