  1. @Expectorating_Aubergine I am so sorry for spreading misinformation now that I have read this. I was not aware that impaction rarely happens. In that case, do you think I could use Eco-Complete on my turtle tank? I am tired of keeping my tank bare bottom for aesthetic reasons.
  2. @Streetwise Thank you so much for the resource! I would love to see and hear how it goes on your turtle tank because I have been struggling with mine for a while now.
  3. Howdy! I saw this post and wanted to give my two cents on turtles. On the topic of subtrate, I have heard that sand has a risk of impaction, but I have also found it to be a nightmare to clean in turtle tanks. On the topic of plants, I would recommend trying out some floating plants because turtles have been knwon to uproot live plants and make a mess out of a perfect aquascape.
  4. Howdy! I recently saw the video on Cory's fish room, and ever since, I've been thinking about using sponge filters to run my 55 gallon that houses three sliders. I've mostly run sponge filters in my tanks with the exception of an internal filter in this tank, but it's a pain in the butt to get it cleaned. If @Cory could hop on here, do you think some sponge filters would work for my turtle tank?
  5. @WhitecloudDynasty Well it looks like I'm going to have to wait a while before I try any fish with my turtles, who chase down any fish that enter their tank.
  6. @WhitecloudDynasty Wow that sounds like a mansion for a red-eared slider! I currently don't have space for such a big enclosure, but I plan to keep my turtles outside in the future. Any ideas or suggestions about what fish might possibly be fine with them?
  7. @Torrey Wow that sounds awesome! I would agree with you for the most part that turtles are fun, but I also wish that fish could be around in the same tank with them.
  8. @Taco Playz Hmm would get a coconut hut or two for them to breed in, since they are cave spawners. Other than that, condition them with lots of quality foods and you are good to go!
  9. @CalmedByFish Ohh they are more than super poopy, they can create a swamp for you in a couple weeks! I currently have a red-eared slider called Pumpkin, and 2 yellow-bellied sliders called Lime and Lemon. Pumpkin is larger than my hand, but Lime and Lemon are smaller than the size of my palm. @Flumpweesel Haha wonder what happened to your turtle?
  10. @WhitecloudDynasty Aww he looks so cute! I'm not too sure how big the tank is from the pic, but it seems like either a 20 gallon or a 40 gallon tank, which for the size of the turtle, should be fine.
  11. @CalmedByFish Haha you guessed it, turtles are my favorite water critters! Although it’s a bummer sometimes when my turtles make a mess of out their tank.
  12. @Fish Folk Aww that’s a bummer! Although to be fair, turtles require a lot of room and commitment, but the panther chameleons look gorgeous.
  13. @Helan Hmm my tanks are currently going through bacteria blooms, so I'm afraid no for now.
  14. @Fish Folk Thank you so much! I know that you have a Youtube channel, but have you consider keeping turtles?
  15. Howdy! I'm a proud dad of three turtles, but I was wondering, are there any fellow turtle keepers here? I know that @Cory has some musks, and @Sol also has a diamondback terrapin along with her group of musks. I would love to hear how others keep their turtles!
