Making a basking area

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\'ve been doing lots of research on basking areas and I\'m attempting to make one out of plexi-glass ^_^

I was wondering if anyone has done this before and if anyone can give me some ideas or tips.

I already purchased the plexi-glass and aquarium sealant that\'s safe/non-toxic for turtles.

I have a 40 gallon tank and I thought I would divide it with the plexi-glass and fill that one area with rocks, sand and eventually plants/grass. I also have ideas for ramps to this dry land... I\'m just wondering how far away should I keep the basking area away from the heat lamp? How much water should I give them to swim in?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated =)

I have made several out of plexiglass, I do need an idea of what you are looking for. Do you want something that fits in the end of the tank or something like this?
