cool setup :P although the pix aren't so clear. be careful about the gravel though, it's too small and he could swallow them

I can't see it very well, but from what I can see, it looks great! Like dixieee said, be wary of the gravel! :wink:

hey, edied316, you have a nice setup, but i was wondering where you got your green basking are, and if there are diff sizes?

I know that question was for someone else, but those are "floating turtle docks" and they do come in different sizes, I think they're small, medium, or large. :wink: I got mine at Petco.

Yoy can get the PVC and stuff from home depot or lowes.

Home Depot! I spent about $11 on the PVC pipe and connectors. Cut it all in my garage with a $.99 hacksaw. Mine's pretty complicated b/c I wanted two levels - a resting in the water level and a basking level. You could make something a lot simpler for probably $5. The pipe fits tight in the connectors so you don't need glue. The top is a metal grill from our toaster oven and a piece of plastic placemat. The floating leaves inside are from Petsmart. Fancy Plants Tony Fern. That was $15 but it's huge.
