Reptology Turtle Pier provides your pet with a healthier, more natural environment while giving you a new way to interact with your aquatic pet. Sculpted in a traditional pier design, the Turtle Pier is great for turtles, frogs, newts & salamanders and is designed to give your pet a more natural aquatic environment while allowing you to use your entire tank for water. The deeper water eliminates most filtration restrictions giving your pet a cleaner more spacious area for swimming. Designed to fit almost any 10 gallon or larger tank, the Turtle Pier has a triangular platform base that measures approximately 12 long x 10 wide with an extending ramp. The ramp can be adjusted to fit anywhere along the angled side helping you to fit the ramp around your existing environment. The Turtle Pier’s floating platform rests just above the water line on three 8 pylons that can be extended to 12 using the 4 extensions (included) so your turtle can rest out of the water for basking while saving space in your tank. Each pylon has a suction cup so you can affix each securely to the bottom of your tank to prevent shifting. The floating platform allows for evaporation and will rise or fall with the water level up to 12, and can be set as low as 3 for low or no-water environments. A docking ramp provides your pet an easy climb to the upper level where they can bask and eat. The lower section includes an optional filter holder for your internal filer (filter not included). Reptology Turtle Piers are easily assembled and made of a durable plastic that is easy to clean and is safe for both children & pets.
