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?
Answer by ChewyOct 14, 2019
At this time, the Tetra Turtle Island Aquatic Turtle Basking Platform, Tetrafauna Decorative ReptoFilter and Tetrafauna ReptoFilter Cartridges Replacements are available individually.

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.

This is a great starter set for your turtle. My grandaughter has a small aquatic turtle that needed a bigger home. I saw this and figured it would be much easier than buying all the stuff separately. Glad I went this route! It was delivered the next day, super easy to set up and the turtle loves it! The picture does show more plants than it actually comes with and no rocks but other than that you get all the rest.

Wonderful set-up!

Our turtle kit arrived sooner than we ever anticipated. The shipping estimate said 1-3 days, but I thought that meant business days! Nope. Two days. Ordered on Friday and was delivered on Sunday. Everything was so easy to unpack and get up and going. We had to finally get an official turtle set-up. The quarter-sized painted my daughter found last spring is now about the diameter of a fried egg. His hardiness and her dedication have both proven themselves! HA!!

tetrafauna Aquatic turtle deluxe aquarium kit almost worth the money

This was a very expensive purchase for our aquatic turtle but he was quickly outgrowing his piece meal smaller tank with heatlamps and tiny filters from amazon. We bit the bullet and for the most part have been very happy. Some reviews said pieces were missing and filter didn't work , but we found set up to be very easy, the filter is efficient and easy to change filter pads inside, the basking bridge is perfect for our turtle bc water level is minimum, but for a turtle that needs the water higher or filled to maximum level it will not allow for much space to bask. My only complaint is that two lamps of the same size were provided unlike the ones in the photo. The bulb that looked like a heat bulb was not, but the regular bulb was hotter. I think there needs to be two heat lamps or a pad. The tank is big. I finally just bought a thermometer to monitor. Overall, this is the best aquatic turtle tank I could find anywhere.

Great beginner tank.

Pros: Decent filter, includes necessary lights for basking, and nice rock for turtle to climb and bask on. Cons: My only issue is the metal screen on top. Its hard to let in stay flat all the way as the wire from the filter gets in the way. Other than that, my little turtle is happy.

1 Lamp came dented right out of the box

Lamp is dented just out of the box. The tank is sturdy.
