Habitat - Indoor :: Back to my moms ...

Turtle tank setups and other indoor configurations.

Me and my son dad split . he got rid of my babies ....
I moved back into my moms where my 40 gallon tank was just sitting empty . cleaned her up got her running and started searching for some new babies. I came across 2 male red eared sliders for free on Craigslist . I'll have to see if the post is still up to show you what these guys were living in . One of them is probably close to 5 inches from head to tail and the other one is close to 4 and they were both in a 15 gallon tank . they've since upgraded to my 40 gall and have shed ALOT like I have a pile of scutes from them , the larger of the two has some pyramiding from the past owner , but I plan on SOON upgrading to a 75 gallon tank for they're forever home with an abta . goaalllsssss

Sorry to hear it. I'd wait on picking up new turtles... get everything sorted before you add to your plate. You can't rescue every RES out there and picking up turtles with issues will make it even more difficult for you. Plus, two mature males.... not a good combination. Good luck!

They're in a 40 . I'm not getting any new guys . but these two have been together their whole lives . they don't fight , they bask together an all . my 40 gallon tank is my.only tank . got rid of the 55 it was leaking again and I didn't feel like resealing it . but Yea . everything's all good for now !

And their shells look SO much healthier . I should have took more pics when I first got them . but they had soooo many layers of unshed scutes , but now they have pretty yellow lines and a pretty shell pattern . the bigger of the two Is the prettier of the two . I've had em for almost 3 months I think ? And I don't have any fights or anything . they're good with each other lol . but if and when they start to fight I'll set up another 40 gall . but I'll be building a ABTA and getting a better filter for the tank cause rn I have my trusty magnum 350 on it and its kept up with the 35ish gallons in the tank .maybe less than that lol . I wanna get a cascade or I saw a fluval 406 decently priced at pet smart I'll have to check again lol . but everything is all good so far with them

Glad to hear it's going well. Keep up the good work! Why are you looking for a new filter?
