Dude, this is so cool! How long did it take for you to upgrade your tank? I have a 29gal and I'm looking to up grade to a 75. I'm slowly preparing, I have a filter and a resting place for the turtle. I'm working on a hand crafted turtle topper. Is there any advice you would ofter me? Thank you.
Can someone explain to me exactly how the overflow works? and how to know how much water to have in the over flow tank out side and in?
OMG I TOTALY LOVE UR TANK AND UR SET UP. IT IS TOTALY AWSOME =)
I just got my turtles today! This tank looks amazing and your turtles are so lucky. I know the species of my turtles but do you know how to tell the gender?
I'm jealous. If I was strong and smart enough to find where you live and steal your 125 gal. setup, I would. Haha, Just kidding, Great job.
where did you get the rocks for the basking area from?
@rpgfan182 per water changes i actually never really change it. Usually if I do its in the spring and i take the tank down about 25% less and fill her back up. Check out my latest videos, i now have a refugium setup with lots of plants etc. I balance the tank every other month and its always perfect, i never have to do anything.
@HookinBassOH28 I'm in Cincinnati....How large are the adults and setup?
what sort of fish do you have in there
its soo pretttttyyy :O lol
Beautiful tank- best I've seen. I hope your turtles know how lucky they are. Well done.
Absolutely beautiful set-up! Lucky turtles.
what are you using instead of the bio balls in your filter?
I really like this, I have nothing on the bottom of my tank, is yours hard to clean inbetween the rocks? Are your plants real or fake, mine try to eat anything I put in the tank, really, anything! They are pigs with shells. How often and how much do you feed yours and how often? Mine are female and 8" from head to tail.
I have the same size tank (check out my vids) and i want to stack rocks like this for a basking area..will this not put pressure on the glass and create a leak?
@yakuzagang5 thank you im getting a cat fish instead thats 5 inches
Great tank. Your turtles are lucky to have you as a keeper. :)
I have to say that in contrast to the uneducated masses of youtube I find your setup exceptional (and that is fact not opinion). I currently have a ~5" RES that I am temporarily moving into a 55 until I can get a bigger tank in the 150 range for permanent housing. Side note, do your turtles pick at the plastic plants? Mine destroys EVERYTHING
this tank is awesome
What a pulchritudinous tank! I can almost say it's the best one I've ever seen. Pet stores could learn a thing or two from you.
@rpgfan182 Welper water changes to rid the water of chlorine and other junk i have a few 5 gallon buckets always full with lids that have holes sitting near sump. I dump one 5 gallon bucket into the sump a week and fill it back up then rotate the buckets so next in line is used at end of week. It takes a month to get back to the first bucket. Per potassium i feed my turtles carrots every few days. They LOVE them as well as lots of other veggies.
best setup i have ever seen.great job.
@grifloki Hey what filter brand are u using?
Great tank, I can see they are both properly cared for & probably very happy & comfortable;D
Wow, this turtle tank is absolutely gorgeous. I'm in the process of transferring my two RES from their R-Zilla starter kit to a 120 gallon 48x24x24 tank w/a 3D background from Aquaterra. Your setup has brought me a lot of inspiration. I have a hard time acquiring a stable basking platform for two young adult RES's, do you have any suggestions?
@bp120596x Actually that's incorrect, its still pink but non glass insulation, they change the formula years ago. I found a cheaper method anyways about a year ago, checkout my latest videos.
@CrushTurtles I wouldn't throw too many fish in there unless you have a huge tank. But with an algae eater, I would make sure hes not too much smaller lengthwise than the turtle, otherwise he might get attacked. I have one and hes about 5 inches long, doesn't get bothered by my turtles :)
@gearbox3838 nope, pretty much i just wave my hand across bottom of tank once a week to kick up junk and filter sweeps it away.
@larful123 to start sure, but as they get older you have more water and need a better filter.
@reptilelover9 my kids did. :)
@ButterflysPoison I have gotten enough comments to date that I just have to be rude on this one. You clearly didnt think this comment out well and are uneducated when it comes to turtles. With that said you will notice if you watch the video again that it has fans going 24/7 to recirculate the air, there is no need for an ugly open air setup. And duh turtles need lots of water. 1"of turtle=10 gal water and I have. Dock I have is perfect size for their size now, in time will grow as will tank gal
Nice setup! But u need to increase the water temperature to between 76 and 86 degrees F. Nce filter too. I bought a Marineland 350 Magnum pro even though I have a 30 gal tank. This was on purpose since my female RES named Rasia like the ther in Aladdin. They do produce a lot of waste and my uncle who used to work at the Buffalo Zoo in New York said u should hav at least two filters so I bought one made for tanks up to 100 gal. Your RES look better than mine! I think mine has shell rot. :(
Do you know roughly how much slate i would need for a setup like this? I found a place with small and large mixed pieces and i have to buy by the lb. I have to say i have looked at at least 100 setups and this is by far my favorite. Planning on doing a setup much like this when i upgrade from my 75gal to my 125gal in 2 weeks. ill do a before and after video n see how close i can get to this kind of look.
This is by far the best setup on youtube! Thumbs up if you are addicted to watching turtle setup vids!
@thedragonman1997 i dont have to, it cleans itself. I have good filtration and also alge eaters and bamboo shrimp that eat whats not picked up. Its self sustaining.
i just got a red ear slider, it is very small. how long do you think have before i need to get a bigger tank for it?
what is the dimension for ur tank?
Cool bout to set a tank up will a store bought filter be sufficant
great set up!
Hey can u tell me how to do this I have a turtle to I'm trying to find out what I can do ao I don't have. To clean my tank like ever week
Fantastic! I just love it. Do you have a write up on this so that we can see it in more detail. Defintely going to copy if you don't mind!
nice I LOVE IT...They look so Happy! I cant wait to get my Turtle :-) Thx for Sharing...
Beautiful job on the setup. I have a soft shell in a 60 gallon which originally had two magnum 350s, but one died on me so I've got on working filter with an extension intake and the tank is 9/10 full with a floating island. I used to do rocks, and found they are too heavy and cumbersome. They look great, but for me it was too much work and weight. I'd like to figure out a way to keep my hard water lines away. Any suggestions?
