I have a large 2-compartment overflow, and i'm thinking of putting a terrapin there to provide extra nitrates in my light bioload tank. Anyone tried this before?

Space available for the turtle will be roughly 6 inches x 6 inches. Will be getting the smallest kind

That really doesn't seem like a good idea.

Not enough space. No where to "sun" themselves (most turtles like to bask).

Many other reasons - not enough space being the main one.

yes I have to agree. Not a good idea. I have a turtle and planted tank combo idea that I will post later when I get it drawn up.
