In May 2015 I became the owner of a small eastern-painted turtle named Darwin. For those first few years, he lived in a translucent storage container. Which was fine. But I always wanted better for my young turtle. A friend at UArts told me he had a large fish tank he didn't need, so I went about designing a land and water environment for Darwin. This is that project.

22" x 36" x 12" glass fish tank,

1/4" black acrylic,

1/4" plywood,

2" x 4" scraps,

brown paper,

aquarium grade silicone.
