Me and my girlfriend are contemplating getting an african side neck turtle and will have a 55 gallon tank... and I would like some sorta idea as to how to set up a good tank for it, and how many could I get? I was thinking 2 or 3

Thanks Ken, can always count on a reply for you when no one else comes through lol
Hi, in a 55 gallon tank yea you could have 2, 3, mabye even 4. You will need a basking rock, a heat lamp, plants, things they can explore, not real deep water either, turtle food, and decorations, a filter, I have 2 filters, and turtles enjoy meat, and fresh fruit and vegtables, I feed my guys, live worms everyday and they love it, fresh fruit everyday, and I feed them a little turtle food too! I even have a couple minnows. I also have a crawdad in their and it is so interesting to watch everybody, they are so active and they play all day! Remember turtles are a huge task!!!!!! GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!
