When choosing what rocks to use, make sure your turtle cannot consume the rocks. The larger the rocks the better. Not that your turtle is for surely going to eat them… it’s just a safe precaution to take when setting up your tank. When turtles are younger, they may snap at prey between rocks and accidentally catch a rock in their mouth. Rinse your rocks before putting them in your aquarium very well. Just to make sure all debris and bacteria is removed.

A simple setup for a small to medium sized aquatic turtle or two would include the followingcomponents: A glass aquarium of minimum 20 gallons with a 40 gallon breeder or larger tankbeing ideal; a screen lid; an incandescent lamp for heat and light on top of the screen and over theland area; a full spectrum fluorescent light to provide UVB and other natural components of light(sunlight would be an alternate choice if the tank were placed near a window but would notoverheat); water filled to cover the turtle so that the turtle can sit in it with its head sticking outwhile resting (a deeper area is okay but there should be an area where the turtle can rest inshallow water); a land area created with slate, rocks, etc. that does not have any sharp edges; aneasy way for the turtle to get from the water to the land; a heater in the water if it is below theturtle's preferred range; a filter for the water (a Duetto or other submerged filter works well); afood dish; and other odds and ends. Total costs in the USA will run about $100 to $300 for thissetup. The water should be kept clean by changing it as often as needed (this is the biggest painwith keeping aquatic reptiles unless you can have a drain built in; I hate changing my lizard's 10gallon "pond").
