So you’ve decided to take the plunge and get a pet turtle.
The most important next step is to choose the best turtle tank for your aquatic turtle species, and deck it out with fun things for your little shelled friend.
In this article, we will cover how to set up aquatic turtle tanks, and everything you need to know to create the perfect habitat for your pet!
The first thing about aquatic turtle tanks, as the name implies, is that most of the tank will consist of water.
Terrestrial turtle tanks would have more sand, gravel, and substrate, which you don’t have to worry about for your pet aquatic turtle.
This also means your turtle likes to swim if it’s an aquatic species, so the bigger the tank the better!
