How\'s this for a tank setup?

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.

this is amazing i was telling yaya about it a couple of days ago..i saw it at a department store and i wish i could get it but it\'s not for sale..it had the same decorations (the castle, a sunken ship...)
i think it is more like for fish bcz of narrow places but turtles would love that too

If you\'ll take a closer look at both pictures, you\'ll see that the top pic is a close-up of the bottom one, the castle is on the left side of the tank.:)

I guess that if you put fish in there with the turtles it kinda gives them some swimming exercise:D

always keep in mind that if u put fish with ur turtles they might end up as food...if u put bigger fish then ur turtles it should be fine but if u put small one like guppies...but it\'s fun to watch.:)a little bit messy...and Dixieee love the decoration,it would be cool in a tank...

I had a natural setup that I spent a month on, it had grass leading to a rock under the basking light, a river-type filter, and some nice river rocks to make it look even more natural. It was super-custom! Too bad it got knocked down before I could let my turtle live in it or get pics of it.

no. I don\'t. I had a custom 275 gallon tank, a large amount ofriver rocks, and soil, grass seeds, a UVA light, UVB light and a UV full spectrum light.I had to pay for everything except the tank. (I guess that was a recipe eh?)
