    Does the job well

    By on

    I am very happy with pump & filter but had to do some design modification to create actual water flow within the tank. I am using it in a shallow water (2" deep) set up for baby turtles. The pump draws water in well but as designed but if you use the supplied spray bar to distribute the water back into the tank there is little to no water circulation in the tank. I did not use the plug in the end of the spray bar. Instead I snapped the little plastic spoon looking supplied piece on the end of the spray bar. It's a bit loose as is so I heated it and squeezed it so that it became smaller in order to snugly fit onto the end of the spray bar. I positioned the spray bar horizontally about 2" above I am very happy with pump & filter but had to do some design modification to create actual water flow within the tank.

A small amount of water does trickle out the spray bar but the majority of the water exits out the end and creates a water flow back to the pump inlet. … more

    Not reliable

    By on

    This filter is not reliable. There is just a tiny hose for the out take water to be sucked up through. It often pops out, or it is hard to put the lid on without pinching it. Times when it does function it is difficult to get it started. Don’t bother.

    horrible filter

    By on

    If I could give this filter 0 stars I would. I bought this for a 10 gallon tank. Stayed good for 2 days. Now I’m on the third day and the water in my tank is cloudy. The machine started making a crazy sound. I thought this was the one but it’s not. After this one I will never buy another filter or another thing from your website. The found as well is supposed to stop making my water cloudy and what do you know my water started getting cloudy on the second day.

    Difficult to use

    By on

    Keeps the water clean for maybe a week. The filters get gross and nasty and then the whole system takes like 30 mins to clean. The water doesn’t pump into the tank right and the locks that clamp down are AWFUL. It is really hard on my hands and sometimes I can’t open it to clean it. I have to have my husband open it for me. Would never buy this again.

    Not happy at all!

    By on

    We put this filter in our turtle's tank three days ago and the water is REALLY cloudy and it doesn't smell very good.... Does anyone have suggestions for a different filter because this one is not doing what it's supposed to. :/ I think it should be doing a WAY better job considering we paid SIXTY freaking dollars for it! I'm not happy at all!!!

    The is the Best

    By on

    I have 1 canister and 2 turtles I clean my filter about every 3 months. I prep 4 gallons of water to add as water evaporate. Each gallon I add a some water then add: 1 tea spoon Reptisafe 1 tea spoon API Turtle Sludge Destoryer 6 drops Tetrafauna Agua Safe Reptile water conditioner Finish fill the jug and sit them aside and add as water level drop (every 2 to 3 days) I add 1 gallon. My water stay clear and doesn't smell. When you start to noticing a small odor change the Moss Ball. My turtles are 12 and 9 years old an my tank has about 25-30 gallon. DON'T OVER FEED this create a lot of dirt and sludge
