The big question , how does your turtle like it ? They normally let use know that.

Under basking area is that a secondary filter that's submersible ? See your heater in back corner.

What type bulb on basking area ?

Don't see the turtle ? What size ?

Hey Thanks for the feedback folks! Not sure how to reply directly so I will put one reply for both!

He seems to like it alot! Hes always swimming around and messing with the plants and rocks, when im in the room he basically stares at me and wants out of his tank i let him walk around the house all the time! Yes there is a secondary submersible filter that works great. Yep heater in back corner I keep the tank at about 76 degrees and the basking area is about 85 degrees. AND YES sorry i forgot to mention i normally have both lights on the basking area.. I just did that for the picture for lighting. The bulb is a 75 WAT for the heat lamp.

My Donny Boy is about 5 inches now! I will post a pic of him for sure ill see what i ahve on my phone.

Observe Donny Boy well sure you will see him saying thank you for giving him a good home. Turtle are very personable !

I would assume from the two bulbs you have one is a heat bulb and other "UVB". What type of UVB you like to use ? From photo light from both are on the whitish side. I like to keep up with different UVB's for the info.

Once your post is answered / replied to you can not add or edit anything. To add pic's click post reply under this topic is one way . Or under photo gallery could add photos there but for now being related to this topic I would add them here . Just make sure you resize them to fit forum. I found 816x612 works great here and any emails.

Looks great! Just be aware that the wood might get moldy while in contact with water. And treated lumbar is a big no... you can substitute it with PVC however.
