Both semi-aquatic and aquatic turtles enjoy basking in the sun. Create a land area in the tank by gluing plastic to the tank glass with waterproof aquarium sealant or piling up rocks to create a land mass. If you choose the latter option, stack the rocks firmly and consider gluing them together so they don't fall and injure your shelled chum. Make a heated spotlight from a clamp light and incandescent bulb to gently warm the land area and encourage basking.

If you don't want to use heaters inside your turtle tank, then you may want to consider an in-line external aquarium heater like one of the models. These heaters are installed outside the tank (never inside the tank) in the output line of your external canister filter. If you're not using a canister filter, then you can use an to provide flow through the heater. Either way, the heater warms the water as it passes through the heater. If you decide to use an external heater, make sure to order one whose wattage is sufficient for your tank, whose fittings will fit your filter's hoses, and which is rated for flow rates at or above your filter's (or pump's) water flow.

Most people keep their pet turtles in aquariums but that doesn’t mean you have to. Anything that holds a lot of water will work. Large tubs, plastic pond liners, and anything you can think of. Aquariums are the most popular because you can watch your pet turtles through the tank inside your house and they are easy to buy and setup.Your turtle will live in water and that water will get very dirty. This is where a fish aquarium filter comes in to save you. Instead of having to change that water all the time, you use the filter to do the dirty work for you. Turtles are dirty pets so the bigger the filter the better. Warning- these can sometimes be expensive.. but save a lot of time down the road and help keep your water clean.*Note: Buying pre-formed ponds is a great way to save a lot of money. This one we listed is 86 gallons of water! That’s pretty large which is great for a couple of turtles. These are cheaper than fish aquariums. The only downside is finding a spot for the pond liner.Empty the tank you plan on using for your turtle tank. Do not use any chemicals when it comes to washing the tank. Pure water is the only think you want to use. Buy aquarium safe sponges from pet stores to wash out your aquarium. Scotch brite pads and similar abrasive like pads scratch glass and then in those cracks like crazy. Just rinse and rub with pure water. Keeping it as simple as possible eliminates unwanted additives to your tank.Turtles need enough room to grow so make sure your tank is large enough. A lot of freshwater species of turtles can grow to 12″ long. The 20 and 30 gallon aquarium sizes are going to be a bare minimum of what you can use for housing turtles. We get a lot of emails asking if 5 gallon aquariums work for turtles. The answer is a NO because they are too small.I would advise getting some live plants for your tank just because it really adds to the ecosystem setup of the tank. Waste from food and turtle in the water which decreases the oxygen levels in the water. Live plants consume carbon monoxide and turn it into pure oxygen. Your pets in the water aquarium will be much happier then they would with fake plants.
