DIY Turtle Basking Box

Construct a turtle basking box to fit your aquarium tank! Measure the top of your aquarium and cut a piece of Plexiglas to the size needed for the platform. Cut pieces of Plexiglas for each of the walls and stairs, and glue the walls of the box in place with aquarium silicone. Cut pieces of gutter guard to the size needed for each of the stairs and platform, and hold the gutter guard pieces in place while you attach the stairs with carriage bolts and nuts. Place the turtle basking box on your tank, hang a light over the area and decorate the box with rocks, plants or other items your pet turtle might enjoy.
