I hear you on that, I'm saving for a bigger tank which I hope to make him a nice aquaterranium. I was just checking on the UVB as you can't see it properly in the pics, so I was just checking, im not one of these guys who will say you need this and that, if u have the UVB that's probably the main thing. He looks very heathy, so I'm sure your doing a great job, both of us trying our best.
The basking lamp depends how much he comes out the water, my musk barely ventures out of the water so having the basking light on can be a waste of time mostly. Lol.

Keep updating with him, all of us are interested.

I have actually made another thread about this since this was the "new member" thread. My other one is called 55g Turtle-Tank with fish. I hope to attract other turtle keepers or just some people with experience like you so please check it out.

Just a quick pic of my musk, "dec" he was posing so I thought I'd share with you. He's only around an inch at the mo.

I'm in the uk, so we got him for 25 roughly. He's called Dec, after two tv hosts called 'Ant and Dec' (the mrs choice)! Once we get a bigger setup were going to get him a friend, either a map turtle or a girlfriend musk, to be his 'Ant' lol. He is by far my favourite pet.

Nice turtle, I like them but my mom won't let me get one, she says one fish tank in the hosue is enough.

Hi and welcome!!!! I LOVE the turtle! Just a note on your fish-you have tropicals mixed with coldwater fish (common goldfish). Your common goldfish are going to cause you the most problems because they grow to be 12-18inches in a very short amount of time and realistically need to be in a pond environment. They are also very messy fish and may prove to reek havoc on your tanks bioload. I would consider rehoming them in the very near future. Please be careful and research your fish! Good luck!!!!
