Love that basking area. :D Aren't all those rocks a lot of work?

Thanks.
I've never thought the rocks were a lot of work. Seems easier than gravel to me. I think the angle of the photo makes it look like there are more than is really there. There's only a little over a layers worth.

I don't think you have to worry about these turts drowning. They are great swimmers and plus these turts look like adults.

For those that have cork bark as the basking area. Is it easy for your RES to climb on to it? I also saw a pick where the cork bark end was slanted down, like a little ramp, can the cork bark be bent like that?

I think there's usually enough of a natural curve on the sides for them to climb up on.
I used a large piece that I layed across the top support of my tank.
Then I wedged a piece in the tank up next to it at an angle for a ramp.
He gets up there easily.

Hey guys, look at my idea of an above tank basking area here: http://www.redearslider.com/forum/viewt ... 815#162815

I made it up myself! (which is a really good start considering I have no creativity whatsoever)
