Very cute. What kind of tank is that? Could it hold more water?

Thank you.
And yes, it could, but the problem is, I wasn't able to find a proper basking dock in the area I live and would need to order one online.
Meanwhile I have bought this log at a pet store that they use for basking.
If I add anymore water it will be covered and they won't be able to bask.
They can still swim around freely though and seem to be enjoying themselves. Would you recommend ordering a dock and increasing the water level though?

It's probably something you want to look into eventually. Zoo Med sells cork bark, I'm not sure if they're available in your country though. The next would be to look for exotics or specialty stores. Florists might also have something suitable.

More Nugget pictures. :D
Look at her tiny nose!
I take more photos of Nugget because she is the calm one.
Pancake moves around non-stop when I take him out so it's really difficult to get a good shot.

Thank you so much!
They're really warming up to me so I'm happy.
It's funny but I never realized that two turtles can have such different personalities. Nugget is quite shy and has a tendency to just sit there and observe, while Pancake is a constant wanderer. I need to be so careful that he doesn't wander off the sofa.
I will be posting more photos soon. :)

hehe, thanks!
Most turtles/torties look like cute pancakes. :D
I hope I manage to post more pics of Pancake, too. I feel it's unfair that Nugget stole the spotlight. :P hehe
Thinking of setting up a blog for them to monitor their progress and growth.
