I sort of put the platforms together myself. I attached suction cups to some flat disposable plastic-ware (like the lid to a box) that's about 5"x8". Then attached another flat piece of plastic to it at an angle, serving as the ramp. I've seem pictures where people just invert a shallow plastic tray (which you can get at a dollar store, for organizing little things in the house), attach some strings to it and suspend it on the water surface. I think that should work pretty well too! The good thing about these DIY platforms is that you can always custom make them to accommodate your turtles. Hope that helps! BTW, I like the picture of your 10-G tank setup! How is the fluval-104 working for you? I have an Aquaclear 300 which I've been using for the past 3 weeks and I'm quite happy with it.
