    Wow the tank looks awesome. Hello Shelldon !!
    I was told at PetSmart that all turtles they sell are semi-aquatic and they need a rock or something above water level to bask. So is Shelldon a complete aquatic species?

    all turtles need to be able to bask in the sun to get vitamin D for their shells. Looks like the acrylic box on top is for this purpose. This is a great looking set up you have put together. I bet Shelldon is happy.

    That's an awesome turtle setup! Great size, great filtration, and great choice in fish for a turtle tank! Other than the danios I would have went with a few more aggressive mid sized cichlids. Maybe convicts or an Oscar.

    Old Post, but for anyone else looking to do a similar setup...

    You don't have to provide "hiding" places for the fish, simply add a tank divider (say 70% / 30% - turtle side vs fish side) so the fish have a place the turtle cannot go.

    Egg Crate works well and is pretty cheap (available @ Home Improvement stores in the Lighting area)
    Thank you,
