One area has a mist section....I used a " quick connect" on the outside the hooks to my garden hose and when need be during the hot times or to raise humidty within the enclosure I can turn on manually or I have it set on a timer.

The water pool varies in depth...the tub when empty is around 8" deep. I filled it with rocks at different levels to accomadate all the torts and size. Also this keeps them from getting too' deep with a walkable ramp within the tub.
The filter is a submirsable and mostly to keep water flowing so Mosqito larva dosnt build up. Also there is a sump pump , so water changes are very easy , and with the flick of a switch I can empty out the tub into the garden in minutes....

PS. Whats a putterer? :D
