Submitted By: Cast Away Bay and Bikini Bottom on
Photo Caption: Have had my turtles for about 10 years now and have just recently begun to care for their tank as an artificial ecosystem rather than a cage for turtles. With a easy to service filter with massive 500 gal filtration capacity; plecostamous and snails to deal with algea load; and guppies and tetra to keep myself and the turtles entertained ; as well as fresh parsley growing out of top of filter to provide fresh green and suck some nitrogen out of the water as it filters back into tank I am very happy with this set up. In addition I have just set up bikini bottom (tank down below) to breed guppies, tetra and snails, so I can raise up fry and snails to a survivable level to add back into turtle tank and keep it bumpin!
