Post any questions you have about an aquatic turtle tank setup here. Or if you have a picture of your aquatic turtle tank setup picture, we would love to see it.

Yes, they need a place to bask.
Turtles are "cold-blooded" - they regulate their temperature by moving around in their environment. They need a warm, dry place.
Wild turtles live in rivers and climb out on rocks and logs to sit in the sun.
Don't force a turtle to bask but they need to have the option.
