Lamps should be turned off at night. Turtles kept indoors need to have "days" and "nights" like they would have in the wild. Without day and night cycles, a turtle's sleep habits are disrupted, causing stress and possibly reducing the turtle's immunity and overall health.
Get a submersible aquarium heater to keep the water at the proper temperature.Source(s): owned by 9 turtles and tortoises

If they were in nature, it would get dark outside at night.
