Yeah, it is nice, but once the turtles get too big, it might just be a death trap, so if you are thinking about it just keep an eye on them:D

I do like the idea, but only when they are small, and only if the block is made out of plastic or something, but I would have it facing to the left, to give them some privacy.

lol reptileman they wouldn\'t have the time to think about food:D

for the ideal setup..i suggest u get the \"last\" one u\'ll upgrade to instead of doing it gradually..i saw that block in someone\'s tank once and liked it so personally i plan to put one for sure in my coming setup

floating basking areas may be good not to consume too much space..maybe some plants also..
pix after ur done plz:)

i saw that table in a \"while u were out\" program...i like it but it must be a pain to feed the fish in it...(i think u have to lift the top?!?)...
i\'m agree with u stray,why upgrade slowly when u can buy the \"big thing\" right away....135 gallon would be nice 4 one or two turtles with the basking spot in the canopy(but a clear one)but the perfect enclosure 4 me would be a fishtank as a complete wall...that would be awesome...
i don\'t have hope 4 this x-mas anymore...the dog broke is cruciate ligament(again!!)and that\'s why i can\'t afford vet anymore...good that surgery is expensive!!
but i still dreaming...
