How much water should you put in a tank for a painted turtle?

That depends on the size of the turtle and the size of your tank. If the turtle is the size of your palm or smaller then fill the tank no more than 2-3 times his height (as if he were standing all the way up on his back two feet). If the turtle is larger than that you can fill a tank up to around 2 feet deep. Make sure the turtle has a spot where he can get out of the water easily to bask under a light.
