My camera is amazing!
Yeah mate it's getting a bit ridiculous actually. I'm going to head to Bunning's Warehouse one day very shortly and pick up a decent sized compost bin or something similar and move the entire colony outside into the back garden somewhere (like how Craig has his woody colony) so they have more space. Hopefully some local wild frogs and birds will help themselves and thin them out a little. The 83 litre tub they're currently in is getting way too cramped now and extremely heavy for me to lift
That looks really great mate, I'm aiming for something like this very soon!
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
He's looking a little over weight in this picture. I've since reduced his diet & he's looking great! Winters not the time to help with replacing scutes! Bugger!
Great job mate keep it up.
I was sitting this baby Murray River turtle while my work mate was away for two weeks. So cute, I want another!
Whereabouts is this ancient and out-dated sign Karl?
haha Now I get it
haha great photo
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.
Yes they are permitted in Victoria.
They are the cutest! Are they permitted in Victoria?
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
How were those fake plants fixed to the 3-d background? Looks really cool, would love to do it to mine now!
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!
Is that a bog filter at the back?
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?
9 months old, about 7.5cm SCL (strait carapace length) Can you post some pics of your Murray, how big is he?
Looks epensive... How much did the pond cost itself?
How old is he/she if you dont mind me asking?
Great photo - Congrats!
we could not believe how many turtles were in here on our last visit
