Ammonia!

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 just recently set up a new 20 gallon tank with two baby mud turtles in it. I have a UVB light, a basking area, a grape vine so they can climb it (they love it!) and a fluval filter. It was great for two days but then I woke up on the third day and it was so cloudy I couldn\'t see anything. I changed the water but it got cloudy again. I then tested the water and it was full of ammonia. Does anyone have any suggestions that could get rid of this ammonia. I know it will hurt my turtles and I\'m hesitent to keep them in that tank. Thanks for your time.

Zoo Med makes a product called \"Reptisafe\". It is a blue liquid. You add 1 teaspoon per 5 gal. of water. It gets rid of chlorine, amonia etc. See if it helps.

I had a 20 gal. tank for my turtles. Even with the Reptisafe, I did change the water like once a week. It gets dirty fast!

Good Luck!
