Well im getting a box turtle and im got her a tank and making her a area outside to stay at all day but at night ill put it in the tank but anyways i noticed salt in it.

It was used earlier and i washed it out but i found salt in it today do you think it will hurt the turtle at all.

Im going to put a bedding about 5inches in the tank with food dish, a water hole sort of ,deal wood, and a cave or little home in this tank.

do you think it will be safe with salt in it or not for living.

(i wouldnt think that the salt would be a problem but im not for sure need some help)

How do you know its salt?
Its not a water turtle, you are putting soil in teh tank. . so I dont see whay it would hurt,
but I think you need to really know what it is. Salt would wash out....
