Upgraded my tank yesterday and look how my turtle is sitting on the basking platform.

P.S. The thermometer on the right fell in the water and it messed up the numbers a bit. It's 91.3, not 71.3 and that's the basking temp. The top and bottom of the 9 doesn't show up anymore.

Looks OK. Keep in mind those digital thermometers are not very good to begin with.

It doesn't look like a problem to me. He's most likely trying to get closer to the light. The light looks like it is a little far from the lower part of the basking platform.

Looks good to me too, maybe lower the water a inch or two so that top of the log is dry.
Any picture of the whole tank? I like that log.
