Heith Gagnon: Great set up, it may be time consuming but it looks great when finished...I just made a video of my set up for my baby turtles also and tell where I got all my stuff and what all my stuff is and what I feed them...Check it out if you get time and let me no what you think...What do you feed your turtle's...I feed mine baby bites, baby krill and dried shrimp...Take care, Gonzo...
Life in a Aquarium: Better to buy a regular dock I think.
Tigerg33: Just wanted your opinion. I have a 55 gallon tank. I want to get a southern painted,razorback musk, and reeves turtle. Since they all stay on the small side what gender should i get?
kylegregory55: Also how did you connect the boards? Glue? Or did you hammer a nails?
kylegregory55: What type of wood is that and how did you secure the plexiglass to the wood?
DiamondbackTerrapins: Wood rots very very slowly inside. What causes wood to rot outside fast is constant weathering, insects, and funguses. The needs to be just moist. Soaked wood doesn't rot. This video is over 3 years. Only thing that has happened to the wood is that the wood is slowly being warn down from constant up and down. Maybe when its 10 years old I might have to change the ramp haha. Google: plastic light diffusers panels. Most people cut those into a ramp.
Maricela Johnson: thanks for this vid! i am watching countless "tutorial" videos on this to make sure i dont mess up!!! its always more involved than you think isnt it? anyways i am now having trouble deciding how to do the ramp because wood eventually rots when its constantly soaked in the water… any other ideas?
DiamondbackTerrapins: Clean it off, surprisingly it doesn't happen that often.
DiamondbackTerrapins: She wasn't very old, I think 3 or 4years old.
Peter Wong: What do u do if the poops on the basking area?
Peter Wong: I mean the one in your video you have a large one how old is that
DiamondbackTerrapins: I have a two 10 year old diamondback terrapins.
Peter Wong: How old is your biggest turtle?
DiamondbackTerrapins: Not as long as you keep the distance on the light good. It shouldn't get that hot to where it burns.
alexmace25: I just built a basking area out of shelving wood.. won't the basking light burn the wood? i'm getting nervous about it!
stilstanding2: this was great. the turtle went downstairs first was like.. bou time u finish.lol.iv been waitin all day
James Ryan: try putting sand in the upstairs area. also you never showed the whole set up with the water tank. that is disappointing.
DiamondbackTerrapins: It was just untreated wood from a hardware store.
JAY: What kind of wood
RJ Markham: I have a female adult Red-Eared Slider like yours. What do you do for nesting area?
