Rated 5 out of 5 by apowell008 Great Filter
I love how clean this makes my turtle tank 29 gal. CRYASTAL CLEAR water! Before I was cleaning out the tank every 2-3 days (Exhausting!!!) This was even with the Tera Reptile filter made for turtles. The airflow that this filter puts out is defiantly needed for a turtle tank. This filter has made me a Happy turtle owner! (Top Fin Multi-stage Internal filter 40)

I purchased this filter for the great choice 2.5 gallon glass aquarium. So far I am VERY happy with it! It is very quiet other than the calming waterful noise from the water flowing from the bar. It has kept the aquarium clean for my betta, and the current isn't too strong for him. It's a great product, especially for the money! I highly recommend!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by megggaaan07 Okay.
I have/had three 20 gallon filters and a 40 gallon, I've mostly used them for my turtles and fire bellied toads. I'm only using one of the 20g ones and a 40g for my (half filled) 75 gallon turtle tank. They're okay I guess, My turtles always knocked the spray bar off, and they don't really keep the tank spotless. Turtles are very dirty so it does keep the tank pretty clean for how much waste they produce. The 40 gallon one has some kind of issue that I can't really explain, but I believe it has something to do with the water flow, it (40g) also falls apart very easily (the media 'holder' falls off of the bracket that clings to the glass of the tank). I can't seem to secure it so that it doesn't fall apart. I haven't had many problems with the 20 gallon filters, but I do wish they had an area for intake on the side because my turtles push it down and I can't have it too low because it needs to create a stronger water flow. If I could I'd definitely get a hang on back/power filter but the water level in my turtle tank is too low. They get clogged very easily. I would recommend this, but only to someone with fish that don't produce too much waste.

If you need a sponge filter with a spray bar (as I did), this is a great bargain. The downside is that it gets clogged every few days, and I bought two 10 gal filters, one for either end, for my 15 gal tank to make it a little easier. You can open them and clean them by hand, sure, but it's pretty gross to need to do so often. Replacements aren't expensive, either, but again, it's frustrating to need to clean/replace a sponge so often.
Long story short, if you're in a pinch, this works fine until you get something nicer.
