What kind of plants? Where do you purchase them?

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.

I would love to put plants in my turtles tank. The problem is I dont know what kind and I read not to put plastic plants because they might try to eat them. I tried putting some bulbs in but my turtle dug them up. Any help would be great!

I think plastic plants are OK. The only problem is that the turts might dig them up. I don\'t think you can keep aquatic plants with turts - they eat them all. Try anacharis, RES LOVE that. Your local aquarium shop should have that or else they should be able to order it.

Cheers,

I buy bunches of Hornwort. It lays & grows on top of the water and my turtles LOVE it... They don\'t eat much of it but they like hiding in it - I have had it in there for months with no problems. When I clean the tank, I simply lift it out, rinse it off a bit and throw it back in. You can get it at pet stores.
