    When I had my red ear slider I had nothing on the bottom, It was so easy to clean.
    To make the plants stay down buy some river stones(dollar stores usually have them), some caulking(not the stuff that is mildew resistant thats toxic) and caulk some rocks to the bottom of the plants, let dry/cure for 3 days and they will never float again.

    The floating live pond plants are good for them, they will eat them too. I had hornwart and duck week in with Sass and she loved it!
