    It works like it Should!

    By Meepii on May 20, 2021

    Since my purchase of the "Turtle Clean 30" it has worked perfectly since I got it. Very easy setup, some people say the clips on the filter are hard to open or close. No its not, its very simple to open up and very simple to close. You don't even need to be a rocket scientist to operate this turtle filter. With my old tetra filter that wasn't doing its job anymore since my turtle was just a baby when I got it. I do recommend this product if your turtle is growing up already and not a baby no more. It just keeps everything clean, and the best part is, if you setup your tank properly to where you put the filter suction on one side in a corner of your aquarium and you feed your turtle there.

The food that your turtle eats, that falls to the floor will get sucked up right away reducing a mess. I'm very happy with this product. (^.^) … more

    It's complete!

    By Pamela on Jul 13, 2021

    YES! It DOES come with everything you need to start! Idk why Chewy is answering people's questions otherwise. It comes with sponge, charcoal, and ceramic medium. I can't vouch for the performance yet... upgrading from a Turtle Clean 15.

    Good filter for price

    By Logan on Jun 9, 2021

    I have a 40 gallon tank filled about 6.5 inches with water. This filter seems to clean the water pretty well, but doesn’t circulate the entire tank so weekly cleanings are till necessary for my turtles tank.

    Worked great for a while...

    By Tmb110 on Dec 7, 2020

    I've been using the filter for about a month now and it's been amazing until today when the water flow completely stopped. I disconnected everything and cleaned the filters inside and reconnected and primed the filter and nothing. all flow has stopped and I have no idea what is wrong with it.

    Does the job well

    By Gary on Sep 21, 2020

    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.

    Not reliable

    By Laura on Sep 2, 2020

    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.
