    Either would work as long as he has a way to get out to bask. If they stay in the water all of the time, they can get shell rot.

    I put him in a lotus pot so he can climb up and get some sun and warm up. Hope he makes it.

    Here he is. The hyacinth shadow looks like a giant turtle. He has two rocks out of the water to sit on.
