THE REPTILE AQUARIUM
How often should a turtle tank be cleaned?
It’s important to keep our reptile’s habitat clean. An uncleaned or polluted enclosure will surely cause health problems for whatever type of reptile or amphibian we are trying to keep. If your animal is too big for its current aquarium, the maintenance will have to occur more often. A properly size tank versus biomass should be easily kept every 4 weeks with water changes and gravel vacuuming. If the aquarium is too small? You’ll just have to clean it more often.
What we feed our animals is just as important as keep everything clean. A proper diet with vitamins is extremely important. Most of the animals we are keeping are in a closed system, and out of their natural loop of existence. So, we, as keeper, need to make sure they are getting the proper nutrients to grow correctly and to stay healthy.
UVB bulbs are also important for most reptile diets. UVB radiation allows the animal to metabolize vitamin D so it can be used by the body for health bone and shell growth.
Study the natural habitat of whatever animal you’re trying to keep. We will not go into specifics but give the reptile or amphibian the opportunity to regulate it’s own body temperature. Animals should never have direct contact with heaters or lighting.
Give the specimen the chance to hide. Some reptiles suffer from stress relate hormones and having a safe place to hide will help them relax.
Another aspect of our animals habitat is environmental enrichment. One way to do this is to offer live food. A lot of these species are hunters in the wild, and hunting has shown to help the animals mental health and stability. I do not recommend that feeders of any kind, be the soul sources of nutrition.
