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 use slate because the turtles can\'t knock it over and it absorbs heat.

I found rocks at the river and boiled them for 30 min. to kill all the bacteria. You just need to look for ones that will stack safely and then get one that is relatively flat for your RES to climb on to and bask. You dont have to spend a fortune. It took a while before we got it set-up the way we like so he has one area to swim and can swim through the rocks (we made a kind of cave) and then be able to get up to the top to bask. I know some people have purchased floating basking areas. Our aquarium is too small and those are pretty expensive.
