Hi there! You probably know me from my older post, "OPERATION: TURTLE RESCUE". Thanks to you guys telling me all kinds of helpful information about turtle keeping, I was able to save my turtles from their coming shell rot and stunted growth, which both of them are very happy for! As you know from that post, they are currently in a 20g long aquarium with a medium sized land dock. However, they have grown quite a lot now that they are being taken care of properly and they will soon need to be upgraded to a much larger set up as they near their adult size. I'm now in my senior year of high school, so I will be moving out June 2019 and hopefully being able to set up a turtle pond at a vacant house that I will be moving into. I've looked into options and I feel that the best option for a turtle pond would be a 300g stock rubbermaid stock tank outside, but as always I have many questions and concerns that I need to know your opinions on. What is the best size of filter for a 300g stock tank? I need one that can handle turtle waste, so preferably a much higher turnover rate than other filters while still staying in an affordable($500) range What types of aquatic plants are edible/safe for turtles? What's the best way to create a stable land dock for 2+ turtles? Rocks are kind of hard to balance and my other options require a stable ramp, so I was wondering if you guys had any ideas on it. Best or favorite stand for holding up a heat lamp? How do I protect my turtles from extreme temperatures and weather? I was thinking about making a smaller indoor set up with a pond liner and a wooden frame for temporary protection during storms, winters and heatwaves, but if there's another way or if I don't have to worry about it I'd much prefer to know about that way. What's the best size heater for the water, if any heater is needed at all? How do I protect the equipment(heat lamps, filter, etc.) from outdoor elements? Best turtle breeders/rescues that are near missouri? What other turtles are compatible with sliders? How do I find a reptile vet near me? Some suggestions on turtle food/ways to vary the food? What I am feeding them now works fine, but I want to give them as many options as possible. They already like strawberries a lot, and meal worms/crickets, but I know for certain that they Hate cranberries. Any good ideas for lids to protect them/layout/measurements for lids? Since I have both a red eared slider and a yellow bellied slider in this 300g, I've been considering adding to the family with one or two more turtles. If this is not possible, though, I'm also completely up to just keeping these two in the pond. the aquatic plants, driftwood and rock scapes should provide plenty of interesting terrain and give them lots of space, so I don't mind having it look empty when it means the turtles are happy. Thanks for your help, again!
