    Hey guys, new here. I have a 125 gallon with oscars and parrots.

    This is my only other aquatic tank. It's a 40 gallon breeder. Tried to keep it simplistic. Basic. It has 2 filters, UVB/heat and besides him there's 2 nerite snails and 2 cories I had left from another tank and the current plan for them is to just let them be there, and not replace them as they go.

    Only sure thing I want to add later is a small BN pleco when there's enough algae growth.

    Aw cute, I had Mississippi map turtles, and they out grew every tank I bought for them so they went to live in a pond :)
    Musk turtles stay little don't they?
    I had some plants floating about for my turtles (elodea), they loved just chilling and hiding in them, before I got the plants, they were always skitting around trying to find some where to hide, but once I added them they seemed to relax.
    Nice tank BTW!!

    Musks are literally one of the world's smallest turtles, rarely exceeds 4-4.5" in captivity.

    The floating plant is an excellent idea, and I believe I will add it for him.

    Here is a close up of him being cheeky lol

    Hahaha!! hes posing!
    Just be prepared to buy loads more if he decides to eat it...like mine did :) In the end I bought a cheap £12 tank from the pound shop and grew elodea on the window sill, still got it today, it flowers every now and again... I keep snails in it now. Well the snails are hitch hikers and are now pets :)
