I want to build my turtle a basking area.
What areas exist? And what are their advantages and disadvantages?
(I would favor one answer per kind of basking area.)

A cage from egg-crate-grid is resting onto two bent pipes. The pipes are hooked onto the tank's edges. The pipes are secured with screws to not disconnect. The cage holds together with some zip ties, also the cage is fixed with some of them onto the pipes.
(I did not get any egg-crate-grid in Germany; because of this I used some kind of car's radiator grill out of plastics. Some advantage: it tolerates higher temperatures from the basking light bulb.)
