How to make the island for a turtle

Many think that if the turtle lives in water, then she does not need to come out of the water. This quite misleading opinion. Rest out of water is necessary for natatorial turtles, and for this purpose at contents it it is necessary to place the small island on which the turtle will be able to get out from time to time in an aquarium.

It is required to you

  • Stones
  • Snag
  • Plexiglas
  • Ekstrudionny expanded polystyrene


1. The simplest decision of the island is to choose several stones which need to be recorded well at a wall or the friend on the friend so that a part of a stone towered over water for a turtle. It is necessary to track that the tilt angle was small that it was easy for your pet to get upward.

2. The turtle can also make an exit to the land from a snag. For this purpose it is necessary to pick up rather wide snag, or to strengthen above the special platform from a plate (only not plywood).

3. Also islands can be done of a plate of plexiglas, the peyonoplast and other synthetic light materials. However this way approaches only if your turtles small. As big turtles very strong, will also be able easily to break fragile designs. The island can be decorated with the Javanese moss.

4. It is also possible to cut out islands from extruded expanded polystyrene, to fill in a surface with foam, and so far it did not stiffen, to powder it with small soil for a decor. Such island glue directly to glass is the best of all to fix. Do not forget about a convenient bias.
