    I am thinking about the possibility of creating a ledge in my red foot torts enclosure. I currently have a 40 gallon tank and I like the idea of creating a ledge like the one in the photo that I have attached. Has anyone tried something like this? or any ideas on how I could construct something similar? Thanks!

    Sorry. I don't like it.
    The stairs and the ledge have areas that the tortoise would fall off.
    You'd have to ad rails.

    Totally agree, I basically just like the general idea of creating a ledge and placement of it

    Many members utilize a two story enclosure.
    You should search threads on the matter.
    I have never done one of these.
    Good luck.
