I have a red eared slider and this filter works great! It is very quiet.
This is the worst filter system I have used for my turtle tank it does not filter anything now I have buy a new one. Waste of time and money now I order a new and clean out the tank again before put the new one in.
My turtle resides in a small outdoor pond (15 gal). I'm always trying to find room for him and I thought this small filter may solve my room issue. But after a couple of days, it became apparent that this filter may work well in an aquarium it does not do well in a pond. It couldn't keep up with the mess my turtle makes in his pond and I had to go back to a larger filter. So this is not one for ponds, only aquariums.
This filter sucks! I change the water clean the tank And re prep it. Put my turtle and fish back to this habitat and it's dirty the next day! What's up with that?? OMG now I have to buy another filter!
Works great in my paludarium with my fired belly toads. I keep it fully submerged with a rock on top. If it starts making sounds, I just add more water. I clean it about every two months. Keeps the tank clean and the water circulating. I would definitely recommend this filter!!!
Literally WOW! This filter cleared up my tank in about 24 hours! It wasn’t that messy, but you could definitely tell the difference. Now I don’t have to worry about changing my turtle’s water out every few weeks. 10/10!
I like this filter for turtles (as opposed to fish, for example) because you place it at the bottom of the tank, so it is good for turtle aquariums where the water is very shallow. You have to regularly add water to the tank because it evaporates and you never want the filter to be exposed to the air, where it can make a lot of noise and eventually malfunction. I had 2 of these filters for several years. You have to clean them regularly every month or so, and replace them maybe every 2-3 years, but they work. I have a third aquarium with another turtle, without the filter, and what a difference!
I had this filter for 7 years and maintained my 30 gallon tank clean and without bad odor, those bad feedbacks maybe have bad luck, but the filter does an excellent job, I recommend this filter to anyone that doesnt want to keep changing the water, I change my water every 3 to 4 months. Here are two pics of my 7 years old filter and crystal clear water.Trust me, it works.!!
this is not going to keep your tank clean. i had this and it didnt do much. plus it broke after 2 months of use. makes a lot of noise too
Got two of these worked great for a bit now they dont work at all!!!!!!
