Thank you Tom
I let the baffles cure for about 48 hours before adding water. Everything looks good. Im just missing some media and filter floss. Ordered a 12 foot roll coming in next week. I tossed in about 30 sponges they are working great
The turtles were only kept in the tank about 2 weeks til the sump was finished. They were moved from my 55g Mbuna cichlid tank. The only filtration during that period was a sponge filter
Turtles are happy now
Planning to build a canopy with sliding glass panel when I have a month off from school during winter break.
