Hiya Holly:-)
What size is your table? I have mine in a 4ft6inch by 2ft 6in table which has a partition down the middle so they cant meet, I have to keep them apart for now as Mikey hasnt been well and the vet reccomended to split them up:-( I have rocks and hidey holes in so they can hide if they want and flat stones to scramble over, and they seem happy enough,sorry for not posting a photo I did try but it didnt work, dont know where I went wrong:-( maybe someone else will post you a photo ,
I hope so,
Love Maz xxxx:*

[updated:LAST EDITED ON 21-12-07 AT 03:33 AM (GMT)]Hi Holly,
My hubby made me this wonderful tort table! the inside demensions are 5' x 3'. The substrate is a mixture of sand and top soil with pea gravel around the water bowl (to keep the dirt out) My two tortoises love it! I put in several hiding spots. It has two UVB/UVA florescent bulbs as well as a ceramic heat emitter and basking bulb at one end. I use the ceramic heat emitter at night during the winter because it get real cold in our livingroom at night.

Well I know this is going to start a controversy about keeping two different tortoises together but here it goes. The small one is an Eastern Hermann, she (and I use the term temporarily) is 2 1/2 years old. She was my first tortoise. The larger one is a Russian that was given to me. This poor girl is around 4 to 5 years old and unfortunately has been fed the wrong diet most of her life. Her shell is deformed in the front and she was (is) seriously overwieght. I kept them apart for 6 months to make sure the new one was okay and then when my husband finished my table I decided to put them together. They have the same diet of weeds so I figured they would be okay. I have read all the other posts about keeping different breeds seperate but Oh, well. I watched them carefully to make sure there wasn't agression and at first Mila, my Hermanns was the agressor but then they settled down and get along fine now. I think they had to work out their pecking order LOL!
