I purchased this smaller filter to redesign my turtle tank. It does a good job for what it is intended for. The only drawback of this item is the instructions say to change the filter once a month. The filter gets dirty rather quickly so changing it weekly is more realistic.
Only worked for a week
The filter worked great for a few weeks before shutting down and refusing to turn on. We took it apart and tried to figure out what’s wrong but couldn’t get it fixed. Very cheaply made. Would not recommend
stopped working in less then 24hr called chewy said they would send a replacement, never got it I had to buy anther filter last night.
I bought this filter about a year ago, I have two turtles and it seems to do the job & keep my 20 gallon tank clean. Worth the price.
Didn’t get rid of smell for the tank, barely filtered any water had to change the filter after a week and it was disgusting. Was hoping this would make cleaning out the tank less but I still have to do it every few days. Water isn’t clear at all. I don’t know if I’m doing something wrong but I read the instructions.
Barely had it for a year and it broke
I ended up having to duct tape the filter together in order to it to work since the suction cups broke off and allowed unfiltered water to leak back into the tank. All in all it was a waste of money and I should have gotten something better.
It’s gonna blow
Hi I would like to return this item as it is extremely loud and sounds like it’s gonna blow.
So far so good :)
I've been using this filter for about a week and I've definitely noticed an improvement in the water clarity and waste. I replaced my zilla aquarium filter which was honestly horrible, it didn't keep the tank clean at all and all the waste sat at the bottom of the tank. With this new filter the water looks clean and the waste is no longer sitting at the bottom. The only con is that this filter is pretty loud, lol. I even bought the smaller of the two, size medium hoping it would be more quiet but alas, it is quite loud lol.
Great filter. If you have turtles, please read!
I bought this filter for my 3 Red Eared Sliders. If you’re hoping that this filter alone will keep your turtles tank clean, that’s pretty unlikely. There are a few other factors to consider when caring for your turtles home. Water temperature can play a big role in tank maintenance. Having a good heat lamp for your turtles is an absolute must! UV lighting is essential to their health. They should have a spot to dry off and bask under the sun or under their lamp. Make sure that you aren’t over feeding your pet. I feed my boys every 2-3 days. If they over eat their water gets dirty pretty fast. I use an Odor Control Moss Ball and the Tetrafauna Repto Guard Turtle Heath Water Conditioner, in addition to this filter. These items can also be purchased on Chewy, but other brands might work better for your pet. Depending on the type of turtle, care and maintenance can be different. I recommend doing some research if you’re unsure of what products to use. With that being said, my turtles have been using this filter for 2 months now and their tank is still clean. I’ve used other filters and they last for 2-3 weeks if I’m lucky.
Good but not the best
i have it in a 10 gallon it definitely works but i dont think it would work in a 20 gallon
