Do you have larger sizes Turtle Aquarium.then the 20 gal,?

Even with the filter how often should I change the water in the tank
Answer by ChewyNov 07, 2019
To keep your aquatic reptiles happy and healthy, it’s important to change 20% of the water in the kit every week with new conditioner-treated water. A 100% water change should never be performed, as the drastic change in water chemistry may cause stress, or even death, to your pet.

how often should I change the filter
Answer by ChewyNov 06, 2019
Replace filter cartridge every two weeks or sooner for optimal performance.

Is there any way I can buy all these things except the tank it’s self?

Defective poorly designed

I have a lot to say, but for time’s sake DO NOT BUY THIS. The filter levels are extremely sensitive, and when the water went too high during set up, the filter burned out and made the entire tank smell like burnt rubber. I had another stronger filter also in the tank that was completely wrecked. I could not get the smell out. The dock wasn’t even tall enough to meet the minimum water level of the waterfall filter that burned out. The tank top is also nonsensical for a turtle because no cords or filters can fit through the tank screen. Also there was no heat bulb included, just a regular light bulb. I can see why this is on sale, but even still it is 100% not worth it.

Great Starter Tank!

Perfect start for new, small turtles! Eventually, I will upgrade some of the parts but for now, it takes all the guesswork for the primary needs away. I’ve added rocks & real plants too.

Works great

Doing exactly what I needed it for. It's a great little starter tank for our turtle hatchlings before they go into their bigger home.

Basking Light Stopped Working

After just a couple of weeks, the basking light/heat lamp stopped working. Tried replacing the bulb, no luck. Tried working with customer service on the issue, no help other than to replace the entire kit that is already set up with a turtle in it!!! Only the heat lamp stopped working. Seems so much easier and cheaper to simply replace that! There are various options on the site available. But, go ahead and send out an entire new kit and have me have to ship the old one back. That's customer friendly.

Perfect Home for my Turtle

My son wanted a small turtle when he was a little boy. Being a pet lover myself we purchased a tiny baby turtle. Fast forward she is now 23 years old and very large. This tank is a perfect home for her.

Aquatic Turtle Deluxe Aquarium Kit 20

My turtle likes the tank. I have sent Tetrafauna a question about the water filtering system. I may have overestimated the cleaning ability of the filter. The website mentions an additive to the water that may help. And the kit came w/ the same size light fixtures--the instructions mention a shorter fixture for the heating light and a taller one for the UVB light bulb. I emailed Tetrafauna about that too. I will probably need to use the heater I also purchased as the water doesn't seem to be staying warm enough w/ just the lights. But overall I like the aquarium.

Turtle Aquarium

We ordered this for my sons baby turtle. The aquarium is bigger than I expected it be. We are so happy with this purchase. This package came with everything we needed. We like that the turtle will have room to grow & we like that the turtle will have heat. I think its a great price for Everything it comes with.

Good kit But..

The kit is really nice and the stuff looks good and functions well. The plastic plants are a throw away for turtles I think, at least for mine. The one issue I have is that the description makes it sound like the filter is also a basking platform, maybe for frogs or other small climbers. It is too steep for my turtles to climb up onto. It does come with another basking platform.
