Turtle tree trunk platform


Petco has Turtle tank that has a tree trunk platform almost the length of the tank . I have a old 110g tank 64x18x24 and thought if I can fine info on how to build one that would be a good project to do it's been drilled at the bottom with 3/4in holes , when I first use this tank I had a Eheim 2028 filter going underneath the tank , but still with only 3/4 fill and good circulation I think would work great. My other idea is making a water fall on one of the tank and make a basking landing about 15-20in long with gravel, rock and plants . I would run a pvc from along the bottom and come up for the water fall and return on the other side {tank is drilled both on the right side of tank}

any web sites and info will help with ideas thanks

Same hear ,a good air brush paint job to look natural wood and seal it in , would be the best setup! Good intake from underneath and a good strong flow would all you need . I think they use a wet-dry underneath there tank . I not sure if Marine Land or Oceainic makes there systems for Petco Co.

no can't find it I guess it has to be a DIY or half tank land and swimming pool on the other end of the tank.
