    Doesn't Work Well As An Only Filter

    By Golfermom on Sep 16, 2018

    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 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. 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

    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.

  • Not sure..

    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.
