Rated 1 out of 5 by HerpWorks 2 Broken within a couple of months
Bought two of these and within a couple of months both make loud grinding noises coming from the pump. They still function but are terribly loud. I've tried adjusting the metal rod that the prop fits onto but no luck. Don't buy this product if you are working with sand base. That is the only thing I can figure would do this unless it happens to all of them .

Rated 2 out of 5 by Iheartturtles Not worth it!
I bought this for a 40 gallon tank that only has 15 gallons of water in it and the first month or so it was great then I started to notice I was having to clean the tank and replace the filter cartridges sooner and sooner, now I have to switch the filters every week sometimes less time than that. I was told it would keep the tank clean for a month not true, another thing that bothers me is it takes two filter cartridges and they only sell replacement filters as a 3 pack so if you don't want to be at the pet store every week you need to buy more than one package at a time. I have a baby red eared slider just fyi. I tried to return it but didn't keep the receipt so I'm going to sell it and try something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TurtleLuv This product is Fantastic
I just bought this because my old filter broke the turles love it. Great bargin plus it comes with two filters inside already. Keeps the tank clean and best of all the turtles can climb on it to get some basking time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TonsOPets Works for about a year
I have 2 of these in separate tanks, both pumps stopped working after just over a year, first there was a humming noise happening then they both completely stopped. PetSmart apparently doesn't carry replacements either, I tried the ExoTerra pump but the wire is too fat to fit into the little notch so the lid doesn't close. I checked the Tetra website and there's nothing there, so I'm not sure if there is even a replacement pump available.
