For one thing how big would it be? Over time it might start to really smell so be sure to clean it often.

I have my snapper in a rubber maid. (He\'s a baby) It seems to work out good! But i have it (gender unknown) in the garage. Do u guys think that it would be sturdy enough to bring it inside?

I\'ve read about other peoples set ups here and there, and a lot of people keep there turtles in a rubermaid type container. Is he a box turtle, or aquatic? Just wondering. Because I\'ve seen both set ups.

I wouldn\'t see why it wouldn\'t be sturdy enough to take inside. You know how sturdy and durable those rubermaids are. (remember those commercials. I know I\'m a nerd)

I don\'t think I would like a rubbermaid container simply because I couldn\'t see my turtles swimming underwater, I think I will stick with my good ole aquariums.

Yeah, but there are clear boxes, so you can see through. Plus they\'re good for my snapper, he likes his privicy!

You will miss seeing them swim and \"walk\" around the bottom of their \"home\" at \"eye-level\". This is one of the most fun things--they look and act like \"dinosaurs\", at their size, you can imagine them as huge \"beasts\"--right their in your aquarium! This is from my personal perspective. The turtles may enjoy the privacy of an opaque home. Who knows. All I can say is that I am sitting here looking at my little guys right now--one standing on his tippy-toes getting some air and leaning on a plant, the other rumbling around the bottom of the tank. As long as the water is clean and they can bask.
