After reading some of the reviews I was hesitant about purchasing this system, but did so anyway. I have a Red-eared slider in a 55 gal fish aquarium with about 13 gallons of water. This filter has keep the water crystal clear for several weeks and still going strong. I do take and clean the filters every other week which is a simple operation. The only complaint I would have is the output sprayer is noisy but solved this problem by putting the output tube just above the water line and directed the spray towards the wall. Had it below the water line but the turtle kept knocking the line off the tube. Highly recommend this product to new turtle owners like myself.
It works as it should
It works as designed. Not difficult to set up. Still needs maintenance and cleaning like everything else. Something people need to understand. There is no magic pill
I wouldn't buy again
I bought this turtle tank filter for our tank that is 50 gallons but we only have it half full (25) gallons. This filter could not keep the water clear. Also, after only 5 months of use and it stopped working completely. I am looking for a replacement again.
It works like it Should!
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. (^.^)
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
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.
I've been using it for a few weeks now and it keeps my 40 gallon tank crystal clear.
I have a 55 gallon tank that's filled half way and it works great tank is the cleanest I've seen it.
Does the job well
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 the water level. 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.
Worked great for a while...
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.
