Common musk turtle habitat
Be sure to provide a good-sized aquarium with proper water quality and depth. We recommend 55-100 gallons for 1-3 turtles. Since musk turtles spend almost all their time in the water, providing the best water filtration is very important. Some people use canister filters for the best results with any type of water turtle tank. For juveniles, provide at least 30 gallons of water, whereas adults need more.
The larger the Musk turtle aquarium the better
For adults, we really recommend the largest you can afford and fit. By providing 55-75 gallons of room, the water will stay cleaner longer. This will reduce the frequency of water changes necessary to keep your aquarium clean. The aquarium can be decorated with aquatic plants, rocks (large), hiding spots, driftwood, and a substrate of river pebbles. The slates of rock that breaks the water surface can act as a basking site, same with affixed driftwood.
Basking spots and temperatures
Like most species of aquatic turtles, Musk turtles need a dry dock to bask on and warm-up. Provide a proper ramp to get to the basking area, and then usually a 90-degree hot spot is achieved by using a basking lamp. Using a basking lamp that provides both heat as well as UVA and UVB light spectrums are necessary.
