Thanks, I've actually been reading this forum for a while to get ideas and info., so I read about the problems you had with live plants. I thought it was at least worth a shot, so I guess we'll see! I was also a bit dissapointed that the amount of soil I got didn't cover those wheel wells. I was actually thinking about putting another piece of slate across them like a bridge, to give the turtle a shady hide spot on the warm side of the enclosure. I may just add more soil if I can't figure out a way to keep a rock there safely though. As for the dimensions, there's a yardstick in the picture to give you an idea of scale, it's about 36" by 20".
How is the light set up in your enclosure?
:that looks pretty damn close to my indoor setup. I tried live plants and he killed one and severely maimed the other within a day. The fern's pretty big, it MIGHT stand a chance. Now I use fake plants which is fine by my turtle, he can abuse them as much as he wants and they still provide cover for him. also, by making it a tad deeper you can get over those wheel wells and give your turt more space. What're the dimensions?
