False Map Turtle

false map turtle
I changed my Map turtles..water?

I have a map turtle and I believe its a false map or a northern map turtle.
Normally the water in its 30gallon tank is 1inch or lower.
I raised it alittle over 3inches. My turtle shell length long is 2 & 1/2 inches long(Latitude, down)
Is alittle over 3inches to deep?
(I have rocks that come out of the water and under the water)
Please tell me ASAP.
My map has a basking area

I would make the water much deeper. Just make sure that he has a ramp to get out onto something dry to bask. Buy a ramp/land area with suction cups that will allow you to set it to the water height.
Map turtles live in lakes and rivers that can be deep. Filling the tank with 12 inches of water would be better for him and not harmful. You greatly increase their living space with more water.
I have a male Map Turtle that is about 4-5 inches, 13 years old, and lives happy in a 55 gallon tank that has about 15 inches of water, a fluval 404 filter, air wand, rocks and driftwood in the water, heater, land, etc. Hes had this tank since he was the size of a quarter.
Not only is more water better for the turtle, but also make viewing him more enjoyable.
Use a good filter.

    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any internet browser
    compatibility issues? A small number of my blog readers have complained about my website not operating
    correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any
    ideas to help fix this problem?

    first), but someone who kind of wanders around in her
    own mind (and hher social venues) without enough
    of an agenda to really, REALLY know what she wants iin a man. Microsoft,
    Sony and Nintendo don’t just sit back and make money off of every machine they sell.
    It’s a great idea to devote a special area in the home just for playing games.
