you sound like ur doing ok but i\'ll be honest with u ur tank dose\'nt need to be that big. But if thats what you want i\'m sure it will make them happy.

that is a big tank and i\'m sure your turtle will love it....you sound like you pretty much are on your way to making a nice environment. You didn\'t say anything about rocks to put on the bottom of the tank....turtles love to dig through them...but they can be work if you add them....something you don\'t really need but an extra...good luck....have fun

Use some bigger river rocks, no gravel or something, those things make it a lot easier

I have to disagree with joe allen on this one. Why waste money on all the inbetween sizes of tanks. I have Joe, my RES in a 100 gallon and wouldn\'t have her in anything smaller.
