I just happened upon a really neat one on the internet.... The site is Petdiscounters.com They have a unique floating island turtle platform that comes in 3 sizes. I got the medium one and my turtles love it!! It is really lightweight and a lot easier to deal with when cleaning your tank. It is made by ZooMed and is quite inexpensive. I like it MUCH better than the brick thing as I struggled with that method for too long! Good Luck!

I have been to the site but which did you get? The dock, ramp, or the Island? I have 2 red ears & a map turtle in a 20L tank. I have no clue what to get and got so frustrated that I made my own by using the reptile hamock & ladder. I wanted to build my own but were do I start? Any info would be great

I sujest u get a peice of plexigalss that is the width of your tank and has enough room for your 3 turtles to all be on at once, then simply silicone it to the sides with 100%silicone.Then get a ramp of some sort, I weighted down a peice of cork wood with a rock, I did this by putting a stainless steel screw into the rock through the wood.
