    Hello! My sweet 1.5 year old Greek is wonderful and in great health. My questions is about when I clean her enclosure. She has a 3ftx6ft table, so it’s definitely going to take me at least an hour + to get all substrate out and the new substrate in. I’m not sure what to do with her during this time while I’m cleaning. I’m scared she will get too cold or something! I’m curious what everyone else does with their torts while cleaning. Any help is very much appreciated!

    I'd use the time for a long soak. You can change the water out if it becomes dirty or cools too much.

    I’m glad to hear you say that. I wasn’t sure if you could soak “too long”. Thanks so much!
