Turtle Pier Basking Platform - Drs. Foster and Smith

Most turtles enjoy basking on a platform slightly above their substrate or water. That platform can be something simple, such as a rock large enough to accommodate your turtle, or something more complex and imaginative, such as a water dock featuring a ramp. For aquatic turtles, it's easiest to purchase a platform or landing that you can attach by suction to the glass.

With the great popularity of basking turtles, it is no wonder why so many people are looking for a a good turtle basking platform or turtle dock. While one can certainly pile up bricks, rocks and use substrates to create a land area, this makes a tank very heavy and displaces a lot of water your turtle could otherwise use for swimming. In addition, submerged rocks and objects needed to create land also have the disadvantage of trapping waste and uneaten food, which can be very hard to retrieve and lead to a foul-smelling setup that’s bad for both you and the turtle. Thus, if you are using an aquarium to house your turtle, a good turtle basking platform is the way to go.In our view, the Turtle Topper Above-Tank Basking Platform is literally an “out-of-the-box” concept that we really like. This platform will not sink, come un-stuck, or fall apart. Moreover, it is the only one available that makes use of the vertical space in an aquarium that is otherwise wasted. While it may be big enough for a 10 inch turtle, we suggest using it for turtles no larger than 8 inches in total carapace length to err on the safe side.
