The standards for turtle ownership have changed considerably over the past couple of decades. No longer is it acceptable for you to place your turtle in a simple, water-filled tank and call it good. Experts recommend creating a cozy environment for your shelled friend to keep them in maximum comfort. We’ve run numerous tests to find the best turtle homes, and we’ve found these three turtle aquariums make the grade.

There’s more than enough space for them to bask in the warmth of the tank’s heating lamps, as well as explore to their heart’s content.
