Rated 4 out of 5 by vermontcc This system does work
It takes some time for the beneficial bacteria to build up on the clay substrate and the charcoal must be changed out regularly. This will depend on the load ie. how many and how large your turtles are. The filter needs to be cleaned regularly. But when properly serviced it works well. I have it on a tank with 1 large (12inch) slider.

Rated 1 out of 5 by HORRIBLEMESS This is the worst and most expensive for no reason filter I have ever bought. It does not run well and is complicated to work. What a waste. Money back please!!!!

My daughter rescued a turtle before christmas. Bought the turtle tank set up. We set it up, went easy even the filter. By mid jan the tank was clouding up. Tried water changes and clarifier no luck. came here and read reveiws, One mentioned changing the filter media. Went to our local store and bought finer bulk sheet filter media. the tank is now clearing up. Have to wonder why A pet company does not put pets FIRST

I purchased this for my baby aquatic turtles. Paying $99, I figured it would keep their water clean and filter the water good, but it actually barely even pours any water out of the tube and within a few days, their water in the tank is nasty & green. I would recommend NOT purchasing this for use of aquatic turtle tanks.
