Oh wow! That is a thriving colony! Well done mate.
Oh great that's exactly what my Murray was doing today, I wasn't sure if he is trying to escape or just stretching out and enjoying the sun I'm off to pick up one of those clam pools tomorrow
Found him! That looks like a really nice spot! I loved Mount Gambier.
Would just like to say that putting my turtle outside has been a success for me. I love the bog filter and highly recommend this type of filter. The plants have thrived and it seems a very effective way of filtering water inexpensively. The pump lets the water go through the scoria and then back to the pond via a small waterfall. I am not a very experienced turtle keeper but have learnt a lot from this forum and especially the idea of creating the bog filter. If I built the pond again I wou
Great job mate keep it up.
haha Now I get it
It's an inbred ("In Bread") turtle.lol
I'm curious about this, it looks like the turtle is sitting in a slice of bread! What is wrong with him?
Oh poor turtle, will she recover?
Well done Tae! Good work.
I love your tank and what type of substrate do you have on the bottom of your tank.
Great photo, but that turtle is Williams' sideneck, Phrynops williamsi.
Turtle tank water chemistry perfection!
pH - 8.0
ammonia - 0.0ppm
nitrite - 0.0ppm
nitrate - 10.0ppm
great water clarity!
Turns out Gerti was a boy (now known as Asti).
Asti did meet with a Vet, a number of times.
I had to give him daily injections (not fun).
I can report, he has been well and healthy for a long while now.
On a follow up visit, the vet was surprised, that area of the lip grew back.
It has taken some time for him to build up strength again in the jaw. Seems if he dropped food he gave up easily and went without. All is good now.
Hi, you should really increase the depth of your water for such a large turtle.
Brian it is 6m by 2.5m and has 2 ponds and 1 lizard pit inside.
It has a glass roof a wood back and twin wall sides, the sides come off on hot days to help cool it and I have mesh to stop the cats getting in when the sides are off.
will put more pic's up when I get some free time and some new shots lol
That looks huge. Is it glass? Any inside shots?
This is my turtle house!
The edging you used. Is that clear polycarbonate-roofing? And did you buy a (for example) 2400mm length and cut it down to 300mm heights and joined them together to 'wrap' around the top?
Looks epensive... How much did the pond cost itself?
we could not believe how many turtles were in here on our last visit
For a minute I thought that was a blender....
Oh and nice turtle too!
This setup has been replaced with a 5x2x2, an attempt to house both turtles in one nicer tank for the remainder of the time I will be keeping the Murray. This old setup was given away to a member on this forum

Wow how did you make the filtration system
Now that is cool
thats a beautiful turtle
Can you please tell me a little about this enclosure? Pond Size, Enclosure Size, Pump and Filter size etc. Do you have anymore photo's of it?
yeah looks like a big saw shelled turtle
Some infections such as bacterial skin infections can be treated by applying betadine to the affected area and dry docking the turtle (keeping it out of water in a separate container to its tank) for a specific period of time repeatedly until several days to over a week after the infection disappears.
Sunlight is good for helping to dry out infections and is generally good for turtles, we use UVB lights as a substitute for sunlight but it is still not quite the same.
You can not use only sunli
