Question Turtles

Anyone out there have a planted tank with turtles??? I am finding the turtles are very hard on my plants with their nails. Is this an impossible situation?

Mine dug up all my background plants and some in the foreground as well. I switched to low tech and now I am starting to rescape it a bit. We'll see how it goes. The picture below in my sig was from 2015 when I first got the turtles.

I had created mine out of plastic storage box. The dried part plants had been dug up and eaten by my turtles.

Could try tying anubias to a rock at the bottom.
The storage box doesn't look very big. Doesn't appear to be a lot of room for the turtles to move without hitting plants.

See a new leaf growing.

I have a turtle pond (kiddie pool) in the basement. I just have floating water wisteria )trimmed out from my planted tank) in there more for aesthetics and for the turtles to munch on, then culturing to grow.

Tank On, Mike-
60g Marineland Community, Finnex Planted+ 24/7, Silica (pool filter) sand.
10g, 29g, & 37g fry grow out tanks, 110g stock tank.


What came first, the chicken or the egg. It was the egg, but not the egg of a chicken.
