Decorating Ideas for Turtle Tank. How to on a budget!

Mr Turtle’s tank get’s an extreme make over! Tiddlestopia edition! I finally added large smooth river rocks for a subtrate, and some greenery to make it look a little more like a Texas river.

I bought the river rocks from Walmart and Dollar Tree and the plants from Petsmart and Dollar Tree also.

Brynjar Konradsson says:

okay you want suggestions. buy at least a 70 gallon, a proper caniste filter, sand substrate, stones for diffrent levels, and custom tank top with some mesh net somewere so he can get properly dry when basking. This is basic

How big is your tank and what size are your turtles?

SpaceLife008 says:

How often do u need to clean it without a filter

Elizabeth Nunez says:

Do these need filters or clean by hand

XvREByrd3vX says:

I only put a few river rocks more as something for the turtle to explore rather than a substrate. Tried sand but prefer bare bottom due to sand getting in canister filter seals and impeller

robert justus says:

Why didn’t you just get them off the ground for free?

cl0r0x Bl3ach says:

My two turtles eat ReptoMin floating food sticks,Natural Aquatic Turtle Pellets,ReptoTreat gammarus shrimp and Omega One Juvenile turtle pellets and the turtles LOVE them. I suggest you buy them.

gopro_2027 says:

Rocks never have worked out well for me. They get stuff trapped in them and always muck up the tank. Small or large I’ve tried both.
