Penn Plax Decorative Turtle Topper/Basking Platform

posted in: .: Pet Products 2

Reptology Turtle Topper Above Tank Basking Platforms provide your pet with a healthier, more spacious aquatic environment while giving you a new way to interact with your pet. Sculpted in a Jurassic style, the Turtle Topper is designed to sit over your existing tank giving your pet a more natural environment and allowing you to use your entire tank for water. The deeper water eliminates most filtration restrictions giving your turtle a cleaner more spacious area for swimming. Designed to fit most 10 & 20 gallon tanks, the Turtle Topper has a base 17″ long x 14″ wide x 10″ high and will fit tanks that measure 11″- 13″ front-to-back comfortably. Each Turtle Topper comes with a hanging platform that sits just below the water line so your turtle can rest while partially submerged. A docking ramp provides your pet an easy climb to the upper level where they can bask and eat. The basking platform has a clear top with ridges for mounting two clamp-style heat lamps (not included). A central easy-open grill allows heat to pass through while giving you easy access to your pet. Reptology Turtle Toppers are made of a durable plastic that is easy to clean and is safe for both children & pets. Can also be used over dry tanks to add a second basking level.

    Great turtle topper basking platform I have my two red ear sliders in a 55 gallon tank, theryre about 4 to 5 inches across. I can fill the tank for maximum swimming space and they can go up to the “penthouse” for a nap via the ramp, stay dry with all the proper lighting and plenty of space for both of them to bask. The underneath underwater bench is where they sleep and rest during the night. They are secure and extremely happy little guys. We found them wandering around our back porch when they were no bigger then quarters. Today they live in the lap of luxury with their own penthouse.I highly recommend this topper to anyone with a tank. The suction cups on either side secure to most any size tank..I love this product and am so happy someone put it on the market! It beats those suction docks big time and the turtles stay completely dry, very important!

    Perfect for RES Before I got this basking platform I tried using floating docks for my turtles basking area. Those docks would never last long and as the turtle grew they were never large enough. After a couple of months my turtle would either tear them apart or they would just fall apart. After spending more than $50 on floating docks I decided it was time for a change. I considered building my own basking platform but just couldn’t make the time to do it. Finally I came across the Turtle Topper. I was a little skeptical looking at it but figured it was worth a shot. It is the best decision I have made for my turtle. It fits perfectly on my 60 gallon tank and my turtle loves it. When he isn’t basking in the top part he is usually lounging on the underwater platform. By having this unit instead of a floating dock I can have the tank filled almost to the top. With the water level being higher there is less strain on the filter and with not having to worry about a floating dock that falls apart the water stays cleaner longer due to the filter not clogging up. The two clamp spots on the Turtle Topper are perfect for having a UV lamp and a heat lamp. Overall the Turtle Topper was the best investment I have made for my turtle and he has been healthier and happier since I installed this item.
