Thanks a lot for your informative answers!
I will look into making a filter. I was looking at the XP3 FilStar Canister filter. It is made for up to 175 gallons. Do you think this is good or is it too much? The tank is a 40 gal breeder but I keep it about halfway full. Would the thrust be too much?
How deep do you recommend that I keep the water level?
You said to use sand instead of gravel. Is regular playground sand from Lowe's good or is there something better? How deep should I make the sand?
What is a good thing to use for her to bask? I used to have slate in there on top of the gravel. About a year ago I came home one day and saw she was stuck so I pulled her out. She wasn't moving and I laid her upside down on carpet. I pushed on her belly and a bunch of water came out. She didn't move for several minutes and I put a ziploc bag next to her to put her in (because i thought she was dead). Then all of the sudden she started to get up. I was so relieved!
Do I need to get a UVA/UVB bulb or will jsut a regular 18" shop light work?
