Mark the day - aquarium terestrial lawn
Mark this day people as I think I am the first one ever (to my knowledge) to have a "terrestrial" lawn in tank.
The idea was to create a lawn area or my turtles. They are musk turtles and so they don't really bask a lot, however I do catch mine exploring rather than basking. To this end I decided to add an interesting feature which would be nice or the turts, a little home away from home, to be able to climb up onto and explore.
The turtles are small at the moment the larger I the two being between 2-3" round. In order to explore the idea I have come up with stage one, which if it grows, will be a step towards a bigger better feature in the forth coming upgrade at the end of the year. This is an experiment of sorts, and I will update with growth progress in a few weeks.
