Red-Eared Slider Turtles Backyard Mini Pond

| May 25, 2012 | 18 Comments

I made a little playground for my turtles. I have 5 Red-Eared Sliders and a Yellow-Bellied Slider in there. They love the land area as they spend all day up there basking. They only use the pond to eat and sleep :D. All of the rocks and stuffs that i used to build this are stuffs that i found in my backyard (we used to have a Koi pond). I only bought the water pump to make the waterfall-filter.

    I have a red eared slider I need to build a pond for outback he’s out growing his tank quickly & it’s hell to keep clean, I live in tx & was wondering would a aboveground pond be better than a in ground one? I’m  curious which is a better solution to him escaping or any predators trying to get at him. ANY TIPS????

    i want to make a pond for my three, but i think they may be too small. also, how do you prevent them from wandering away to the rest of the yard?

  14. josebuencamino says:

    I’m thinking about making a pond for mine, although we have no soil in our backyard/laundry area and we hardly have the time and money for concrete.

    niceee, i have 5 too. they are goos pets

  16. stingray614 says:

    not just will it drown the turtles man. it’d drown me good too. hahahahaha.

    dang! that’s a huge ass pond there! aren’t you gonna make a vid of it?

  17. MrPetlover45 says:

    its actually 10 feet long 7 feet wide and 4 feet deep in one part and then it slowly goes up so the turtles can easily climb the slope but it will still be a beauty

    because 6 foot can drow a turtle

  18. stingray614 says:

    a 6 ft de would drown me, nice nice. i’ll be looking forward to see your pond ya?

    i’m only gonna build a pond in 2 years time. now they are still small and i can’t afford it financially yet lol. Laguna filters will be used :)
