    Looking for new turtle tank

    So my girlfriend bought me a turtle and tiny tank a little over a year ago. since then I've upgraded to a 10G tank and added a few fish friends and live plants for him, but I never got the heat lamp or UVB till just recently. I bought a Turtle Topper tank attachment so my little guy could have a nice dry habitat to dig in and bask, although I found out that this Musk (probably) turtle just doesn't get out of the water much which is why, over time, my tank got fuller and fuller with water cause I noticed he loves the water. well the Turtle Topper just barely fits on the 10G as long as I don't assemble a in-water attachment. also it seems I may have a leak from cleaning it last night. so long story short, I need a larger tank more than 10G, but less than 40G or more specifically, a front to back length of 11" or more. does anyone have an extra sitting in their garage maybe?

    as a side note, is anyone here good at identifying turtles? I can post a pic if so

    Sure, post up a picture.

    I've had my pet Red Ear Slider turtle since he was smaller than a quarter. I've had him going on 14 years now. I started him in a 10G, to a 15g, then onto a 45G up until last year. He now shares a 75G with a sunfish I caught in a stream. I've kept him with breeding convicts, then breeding peacocks, even a jack dempsey over the years. Typically what ever he's caught, he's killed though.

    I appreciate it, guys. Actually went to FB marketplace and got lucky to find a 20 for $20 and it's just the right size! I did have to drive almost to sugarland, but it was worth it. I would still really appreciate your input on what kind of turtle I have as it will help me better understand why he never leaves the water

    I tried to just post the pics, but there was an error uploading, so lmk if this works or not.

    I'm thinking its a musk turtle, maybe a stinkpot? If so, it's the perfect little pet turtle!
