Turtle tank setups and other indoor configurations.

Hi! Does anyone else have this floating pier? The ramp doesn’t stay on and is pretty much useless. I need to make a ramp so my turtle can bask. Can you help me come up with ideas on a ramp please? This pier is positioned in the right side corner of the tank. It’s suctioned to the walls. I am only using the platform and not the base or poles. It is floating.

I will appreciate any ideas. Thanks!

You can get a piece of real cork floor tile as a free sample from most flooring stores. Some may charge a dollar or two for one piece. Makes great ramps. If your turtle has a lot of weight some kind of brace may be needed between dock and cork to support it. Easy to work with.

I don't have or use one, but I would look at something else... can you still return it? If not, maybe you can secure it by drilling in some holes and using plastic ties.
