So for three weeks I’ve been constructing the ATBA.  The main materials used are:

-barbecue grills

-cable/zip ties

-green carpet

-green anti-slip grass mat

-3 sheets of acrylic (taken from picture frames)

-Hollow metal (aluminum) tubes for the placement of the deep dome lamp fixture

 

Descriptions

ATBA 1.0

-Three grills that serve as walls, the fourth grill serves as the floor

-the floor part is covered by the green carpet

-The walls are covered by the acrylic sheets to prevent the turt from sticking his head out of the square grids

-the grass mat is attached to the floor that serves as ramp

-On the left corner is a hollow tube where the deep dome lamp fixture is attached

ATBA 1.1

-same setup as 1.0

-additional designs include “boundaries” to prevent turt from escaping the tank

-on the left side is a flat rectangle strainer

-on the right side is a small chopping board

ATBA 1.2

-additional design includes the use of 2 hollow aluminum tubes for the deep dome lamp fixture

-the deep dome is used for the UVB lamp and heat lamp

-the tubes are attached to the corners of the wall by cable/zip ties

– a strip of chicken wire is placed inside the hollow tube, while the outer part serves as the “hook” for the dome fixture

ATBA 1.3

-aluminum foil was added to the UVB lamp deep dome fixture sbecause the lamp was “sticking out”

-the heat lamp is placed on the left corner

-the UVB lamp is placed on the right corner

ATBA 2.0

-the flat strainer and the chopping board is replaced by 2 barbecue grills

-the the heat lamp is placed on the right corner

-the UVB lamp is placed on the left corner
