Keep your turtle’s water clean and healthy with the Zoo Med Turtle Clean Canister Turtle Filter. This external canister system is perfect for filtering turtle tanks, vivariums, box turtle pools or turtle tubs. Combining mechanical, chemical, and biological filtering systems―with a sponge, activated charcoal, and bacteria-absorbing ceramic media―and an included spraybar for greater aeration, it efficiently filters water at a rate of 160 gallons per hour. It features a removable hose-connecting device, an adjustable flow control system, and an easy-to-open filter head so it’s easy to use at home. Thanks to the calibrated anti-vibration bushings, it runs smoothly and quietly, and its compact design saves plenty of space.

  • Doesn't Work Well As An Only Filter

    By on

    I saw that this happened with someone else who wrote a review - My turtle's tank started getting a really gross white film at the top and the tank became stagnant and smelly after only 2-3 days (I had him for about 3 months prior and this was definitely a new problem with the change to this filter). I have one baby 2-1/2 inch painted turtle in a half-filled 29 gallon tank. The filter itself is not easy to clean and the pipes clog up with that nasty sludge. I had to buy a supplement Repto Filter because keeping this turtle tank clean became SO time consuming (even with the Python water changer). The tank just wouldn't cycle and would immediately get nasty.

The tank just wouldn't cycle and would immediately get nasty. However without completely giving up, the white slime/sludge problem seems to be fixed with the addition of the inexpensive Repo filter because it helps circulate the water and provides the desperately needed extra filtration for owning a messy little turtle. If you already own this filter and are having issues, add a $8 (or something around that) Repto filter. If you are considering this filter, I wouldn't recommend it. … more

  • Clean water-Finally!

    By on

    Have 1 red-earred slider, 16 years old. Keeping water clean is always a challenge even with large filter. Purchased as 2nd filter, her water has never looked so good, I can see the bottom of the tank. Taking apart and putting back together sometimes a challenge if I can’t get a good grip and get everything back in just right but for the way the water looks, my arthritis will just have to live with it.

  • Not impressed

    By on

    I have yellow bellied sliders, and this filter can not keep up. It worked great the first week, and even after tediously cleaning the tank, the water still gets cloudy.

  • Keeps tank clean!

    By on

    This filter works great for my 25 gallon tank. I have 1 red eared slider and 1 Mississippi map turtle and 4 goldfish. The filter is easy to set up and take down for cleaning.

  • Works great

    By on

    Bought as a second filter for a large tub of water (3ft x 2ft) in my iggys cage. The Iggy likes too poop in it and it's too large to empty all the time. The waterfall filter just wasn't helping much, but this filter made a world of difference. The water on day 3 looks the same as the first day. Huge difference from the muck it usually is by then. Iggy now goes in the water regularly and his cage doesn't smell because he now only poops in the water that stays clean.

  • Not sure..

    By on

    The water suddenly developed a white foam on the top of the water after installation. Don’t know why. Didn’t happen with the previous filter. Might try a different filter.
