Here\'s are some pictures of my setup and turtles. Tell me what you think. (They aren\'t all that great because they were taken with a digital camera.)

That\'s Kiwi.

Squirt is on the left and Kiwi is on the right.
I\'ve got to get a picture of the setup. Hold on.

I don\'t know why, but I like deep-water setups. they keep turtles from getting lazy. I love seeing turtles swim!

i wrote in another post about how mean mine are..so when they do that thing n the rock, we watch from another room or else they jump off the rock into the water. could loose a finger ticking them lol. u know where u can get rocks? if u go on vacation and go on a hike or something.. around rivers there are lots of big rocks. \"river rocks\" are what they are..find them in creeks and stuff, thats hwy they are smooth

are they 4 turtles in there? cool turtles:)
hmmm well stray maybe the size is good but the basking area seems a bit crowded especially that there\'s no place to pile if they thought of it..

this is the size of my dream setup..i can\'t imagine my babies in there,,it\'s their universe:D

were you asking me how many turtles in there?
Three, two RES and one painter.

It\'s a 55gal but they seem to have plenty of room while the biggest is 9inches.

I was offered a 125 gal tank a while back but the owner backed out of the sale.

I\'d like to get something bigger, but can\'t afford to right now.

As for the basking area its 12x18 inches, Plenty of room for all three but they like to be close to each other at all times, they are good friends :P
