Half of your enclosure should be warm while the other side should be cooler so your turtle can adjust their temperature. Place an incandescent lamp on a far end of the enclosure to create a warm side. This should be set up on a timer so the turtle gets 12 to 14 hours of heat each day. Test the temperature.

Things to consider before you buy a stock tank. If possible buy a round tank, you can see the turtle much better and the turtle can see out better as well, compared to a long narrow tank. Also consider poly tanks, galv. metal tank rust in a few years. I've had to tape the glass tanks to keep some turtles sane. Good luck! Here is a general setup for an indoor water turtle. What we have here is a 45 gallon long tank. Let us start with the basic necessities. The filter we used is Aqua Clear 300. This filter is generally used for a tank of 75 gallons. Since turtles are very dirty, and we have 3 of them, this filter works nice for our tank size. The Turtle Topper is designed to fit a 55 gallon aquarium so I had to do some modifications but I managed to make it work in the stock tank. The little buggers better start basking is all I can say. They just didn't like the basking deck that I made and I got worried because they hadn't basked in 5 days.

Howdy all, was wondering if stock tank set up for CST and AST belongs here or in the big pond section? my common snapper is getting to the size where he will need to move out of his 75 gallon tank into something larger. Id like advice on how people set up their stock tanks. Thanks Much Here is a general setup for an outdoor water turtle. You will want to make sure that you have a protective cover or door on top.
