My tank had gravel in it, but I took it out because people said it wasn\'t good. I got one of those decks to replace the gravel I was using for my turtles basking area. I also added a filter, you know to clean the tank. When I put her back into the tank, she just started freaking out, so I thought maybe she was hungry so I gave her food. She ate but she kept bangin around. That is normal right? I was thinking maybe she was scared of the filter, but when I turned it off she was still bangin around. Do turtles like to do that, bang around in there tanks?
