Are they water turtles? If so, I'd fill that tank up to almost full, and make a basking top for them. It'll give them much more room to swim and you won't have to replace the tank right away.
The materials I used were PVC
plastic pipes....like for sprinkler systems. The platforms are "egg crate", plastic light diffuser stuff for like lights...industrial type lights, I think. I covered it in green astro turf like the stuff old people put on their porches. There are several videos on Youtube showing how to make platforms this way (without the fake grass).
"BauriBob" has several vids...on is titled "Making stuff for your turtle tank", where he shows just how to do it.
I just took that idea and ran with it, as I needed a good amount of dry land for the box turtle.
I started working on the slider platform last night. I'll post up some pics later today when it starts to take shape.
