With that said, how should I go about making an aquatic tank for my two turtles?! I haven't seen anything like it or heard of anything either...any ideas?
To be clear -- these are "sea turtle" type turtles -- so we're talking a tank of water, not a terrarium? (I know, you said "aquatic")
1) how many gallons?
2) I presume it needs temp control and possibly air pump? (you need to make sure your electric power is always available for their health)
3) what height off the floor do you /they enjoy (or prefer) them at?
4) Is direct sunlight (or cold) a grave danger to the tanks (turtles) placement?
