Rated 4 out of 5 by LaVitaS It's not what I wanted but it can work.
I have 2 African side neck turtles. ( both named Ranma 1/2. It's an anime thing.) my turtles love it but I'm not 100% happy with the size.
This tank is for tiny baby turtles and not a permanent home as is for 2 adult African side neck turtles .
It's kinda on the heavy side because it's all glass but it's sturdy. I love how thick it is and I feel that even when my turtles tap the glass with their shells it's not going to even scratch.
I don't like that I need an in tank filter so I got a fish tank filter and cut the filter arm down so that it can hang on the low side (and my basking rock/ramp covers it up nicely)
The only reason I'm keeping this small tank is because I'm going to add in a larger fish tank next to it and modify the side to create a waterfall into the turtle tank.
I have it set up so that it sits inside a larger enclosure so that my turtles can share it with my bearded dragon. This is not big enough to give them a floating island and be done with it. (Unless they are just tiny babies)
Overall it's a nice tank but not for more than one small turtle or a temporary home for baby turtles.
It really is a nice tank so I'm not going to say don't get it but it is small so the animals to be kept in it is limited.
4 out of 5 stars because of the finding a filter issue and the size.
I did see that it could also hold Leopard geckos.
I see that is a good idea if you have ones that like to be lazy. I can see having 2 comfortably housed in this single tank from babies to adults. I have 4.
One full adult and 3 older juveniles are a bit too much for this tank. (They love to climb and jump so an open top tank is a no go for them!)
Also if you have dogs or cats be careful because there really is no top and you risk your larger pets causing harm to your little reptiles. :(
