All semi-aquatic turtles require many of the same features in their captive habitats. I will focus on the basics that you will need to keep your aquatic friends alive and happy. All of the following are NECESSARY items to keep your turtle alive.
Tank: Make sure that your tank has plenty of room for your turtle. Most people suggest 10 gallons of tank per turtle under 4 inches. This means that a 20 gallon tank could house 2 small turtles. As your turtles grow your tank will need to grow with them. Males usually stay small, but females can grow to a foot in diameter or larger. Make sure that you are prepared for this eventuality.
