Florida mud turtles would be in sand all the time in the wild????
How did your turtle lay eggs if you only have a floating log?

|camiller27||Sand isn't good for turtles I hear they eat...and my turtle loves snails I try to give him one every now and then...he is to slow to eat fish though|

|JunJunJenn||Any suggestions for another substrate they can dig and bury in?|

|rodcuda||I don't see why you can't put it on rocks or something else to bring it to the right depth. I have not tried live foods, but I hear they really like snails.|

I want to upgrade them to a 40-50 gallon I found on the curb. I was thinking a sandy bottom with silk plants. I found a really cool filter structure at petco
But its only meant for 4-6 inches of water. Do you guys think I could create a slope to put this on and still get enough filtration?
also anyone have success with live foods?

|rodcuda||That is realy cool. What is your set up? I think I have two females.|

|JunJunJenn||I have two. They both bask often. The female actually showed up on our back porch one day ( live about 1/2 mile from closest water source)! And she just laid an egg this week!|

|rodcuda||It seems that 20 gallons is fine for those.|

|camiller27||That is awesome...I had to order mine online because they are illegal in Pennsylvania|

I don't know much about them, but I have seen them (3-Stripes) around here. I actually caught one in a nearby lake. They are so 'cute' xD. I assumed they would stay small and I wanted to keep it, but I had no idea how many gallons of water it needed to be kept in.
They do seem to spend a majority of their time underwater from what I have seen. I rarely see them basking, but I see the yellow bellies and RES basking very often. My friends and I actually spotted two of them mating underwater once xD.
