I would love to see your final results! A friend gave me 4 turtles (little RES, 2 inch long) that one of his clients gave to him (he´s a vet, the owner of the RES didn´t want them anymore).
They gave me a "turtle home" which is barely enough right now, so I´m thinking about building a nice terrarium with natural plants, and keeping just 2 turtles (4 is too much of a mess and they are growing under my care).
Any ideas about the tank size? I was thinking on dividing the "land" section from the water section with a glass divider, and planting some house plants on the back, using driftwood ramps for the Res to climb.
What kind of bulbs do you use for them?
