Gus and Pricilla Move In!

Well there is good news and bad news today. The good news was that this morning the tank was clear! The bad news was that the leak was back.  It was smaller but still there.  I have tried everything so I will have to take it all off and try again….next weekend. I decided to go ahead with the move in-spite of the leak.  Clearly this will be an on going project!

So I moved over all of their stuff.  I decorated the platform and everything!

New Platform

I moved over the light as well.  I did have to make some modifications to the filter. It was moving too slow. I took it apart which was much harder with the water flowing.  I will need to make some adjustments there as well. The light fixture also needs some work, but for phase 1 we are good to go.

So here is the final setup.

After this I put Gus and Pricilla in. At first they were totally freaked out!  After a while they settled down. I am actually a little worried they could get out!  We will see.  Not sure how they would fare with the dogs.

So far they want nothing to do with the basking platform.  I did give them a turtle chaser treat which they did enjoy.  Here are a couple of short videos of them in their new home.
