Hey guys. We've got a couple of turtles (yellow belly and mississippi map) in a 55g currently but have been building a new habitat for them. It's still a work in progress but I figured I'd start documenting it here.
So basically thus far we built a frame that is shaped similar to a bowfront tank and wrapped it in plywood. Later today I am going to cut the top portion of the tank which is going to be another sheet of plywood with some pond liner stapled to it. This is going to be their play area. At the front center of the setup there will be a hole for them to go down into the tank (20H) whenever they want.
Dimensions are approximately 4x4x4
It's kind of hard to explain, but hopefully it'll make more sense as it progresses.
I'm also working on a 3d background to go along the back walls, as well as a waterfall leading into the main tank.
