It does take turtles a little bit of time to grow so you could always start smaller and move to bigger when that day comes but… people always procrastinate and the turtles never end up getting larger tanks.. The easiest route to go with is a plastic pond liner that holds a lot of water because fish aquariums can be very expensive. A fish aquarium at 100 gallons is going to cost a couple hundred dollars. Do it yourself habitats are always cheaper but maybe won’t look the best. I also kept fish with most of mine. I use tetra species because they are super fast swimmers and turtles can’t catch them.
An aquarium doesn’t have to have gravel or sand, but for appearances, giving your animal a more natural setting, and a place for harboring beneficial bacteria, most aquarists buy substrate. Aquarium gravel is not that expensive to begin with, but there is a cheaper alternative for those buying in bulk. Pea gravel is often used for landscaping, but it is safe for aquariums. A lot of stores, like Menards and Lowe's, will have pea gravel; compared to the weight and cost ratio, you are getting more for your buck than in pet stores. So if setting up a natural-looking environment, pea gravel is definitely the way to go; the gravel is earth-toned with a mixture of off-white, brown, and grey pebbles.

Pet Turtle Tank Habitat & Cage - "How to" Setup
*Note: Buying pre-formed ponds is a great way to save a lot of money. This one we listed is 86 gallons of water! That’s pretty large which is great for a couple of turtles. These are cheaper than fish aquariums. The only downside is finding a spot for the pond liner.Aquarium sand is a bit more expensive than gravel. Pool filter sand is pale and looks natural in aquariums. Just like pea gravel, they are sold in bulk and a lot cheaper than those meant for aquariums. If you decide to go with a fish aquarium as your habitat setup, it will cost more money. There are ways to save money in different ways for turtle tank setups. A person can make a homemade cage and save money but it might not be as nice. Pond liners are cheaper than aquariums as well and make for great cages for turtles. A lot of people prefer aquariums though because you can watch your turtles from the sides with the human eye and also keep them in a bedroom if you desire. If you catch Petco at certain times, they have a $1 per 1 gallon of water for aquariums SALE. So you could get a 40 gallon breeder tank for $40 which is super cheap. You can also buy aquariums used for a lot less money and this is a very popular route to go too. *P.S. I also own other reptiles like snakes, geckos, frogs, and more. I gave my turtle the name of Hercules after seeing the thread on turtle . Here is a good website for finding geckos for sale and how to find descent quality ones. Reptiles are a big deal when it comes to buying quality species.Ten gallon aquariums are useless to animals in my opinion. Turtles need much more room than that. Your turtle may seem small right now but it will quickly grow. Most turtle owners buy a 55 gallon tank because they are so common and cheap. I literally just got done searching craigslist for used tanks and I saw a couple of 55s for under $50 cash. That’s super cheap and people complain that they can’t afford a descent …
