Hi! So I just got my first enclosure. I know some people are against glass enclosures for various reasons, but this one seems good for several reasons in my opinion.
Right now this is the layout:

1. black tape around 5 inches of the bottom to keep the tort from looking out
2. the lighting and heat will be hung under the screen top so that it is approx 16 inches form the floor
3. their is a ventilation strip in the front of the tank, under the sliding doors
4. reptibark flooring (perhaps I should add another substrate too, in order to give the enclosure a natural feel. any suggestions)
5. Is 2ft by 4ft

Is their any feedback you guys can give me? :) Thanks!

(p.s. Going to be adopting a greek tort, not buying)

throw in a mixture of top soil and sphagnum peat moss 50/50. that's what I'm using, you should also try to throw in some plants and rocks to make it comfortable for the greek tort.

Is the tortoise you're getting a baby? If so, the aquarium is just fine. If its an adult tortoise, you would be much better off with a bigger habitat.

I don't tend to agree with blocking the walls.
Cirby loves hanging out watching people. She stares at me and my man playing Uno all night long.

Little bit of training and you could have Cirby giving you singles about the cards in your guys hand :eek:
