  1. General Planted Tank Discussion
    So long story short I wanted to to set up a tank for a musk turtle and instead of just a cheap basking platform I wanted to make a sort of landscape. So I used expansion foam to build up the "land" and then I tried to silicon the edges. Well, water is getting inside the expansion foam section...
  2. Tank Journals
    Hi all! Starting a journal on our new 150G planted livestock container I setup for wintering our goldfish and turtle. A little backstory, this summer we moved into a new house that came with a little pond and stream water feature. This worked out really nice as our turtle was starting to...
  3. Tank Journals
    Hello TPT! I've been in (and out) of the aquarium hobby for decades, and a few years back I started some planted tanks. I did a dirt tank that did great for some time and I still have a planted tank now. I've been lurking here for a while and I've always been meaning to start a tank journal...
  4. Ponds
    Hello all, I work in the retail store at Aquascape. I figured you guys would want to have a quick view of their display ponds. If you live in the Saint Charles, Illinois area feel free to come check out the retail store, it's a pretty cool experience!

    I'm a science teacher at a middle school, and a few years ago, a student rescued a Red Eared Slider (RES) from being dumped/abandoned in the local forest (yes, the previous owner was dumping the turtle in the middle of the forest... and not at the pond which was several miles away). Student...

    Greetings The Planted Tank forum. My name is Ryan and I am offering my services of building custom acrylic basking docks. I have owned yellow belly sliders for the past 3 years and like most people was very unimpressed/disappointed with the quality and selection of basking docks offered...

    I'm trying to find a vendor or store that has eastern musk turtles. The 4" restriction is stupid since that's as big as this species gets. If it helps, this will be for educational purposes. :wink: Thanks, Joe

    Hi, I was just wondering if someone could look over my intended set up to sort out any problems that may arise? Ok, I have a 2.5x1x2ft 'grow tank', in which I have guppys, snails and some plants. It's a dirted tank with sand and I intend to redo it because I didn't set it up that well and the...
  10. Tank Journals
    For the longest time I have wanted some kind of reptile. I wanted anything, snake, turtle, lizard, absolutely anything. I still live with my parents and so any animal request had to go through them, and of course, the answer has always been a resounding 'no'. Finally, however, I have put my foot...
  11. The Lounge & Introductions
    Went to the Old Settler's park today, in Round Rock. I was walking along the bank, and lo and behold, there's a dead fish. With the aid of a friend who likes gross stuff, and a pair of latex gloves, I got the lower jaw of the fish. The skull was wrecked, but it's probably a catfish of some kind...
  12. Plants
    Hey all I could use your expertise is letting me know what kind of algae this is and how I can stop it. The algae appeared under my new lights, it seems to be directly caused by them. My current photo period is 5 hours. My lights are two 23watt 6500k CFLs. The tank is a 125gal Red Eared...
  13. Lighting
    Hey everyone, I'll be home from college for spring break soon and I want to add some cheap lighting to my turtle tank. Here's a few pics so you'll know what I'm talking about. Full tank shot I built an above tank basking area out of egg crate light diffuser on the left side. The right side...

    *Update March '12* I've had Tom the turtle for 19yrs. He washed up in our pool after Hurricane Andrew in 1992. What do your ponds look like?

    :fish::fish:Hi! Does anyone know of some low light plants my red eared slider turtles will not eat? How about anubias?
