Thats super cool. Hows the filtration? Do you have to change a prefilter pretty often? It seems like you've got a great naturalistic environment there.

Thank u!
I dont use filtration currently besides the natural bacteria. If he gets bigger I will ad a filter. I do a 100% water change ones a week. I would probably get away with 2 week water changes cause there are a lot of surface plants and underwater plants.
This setup was done a few months prior to getting the turtle which is important so the beneficial bacteria has time to grow.
