My son got 2 yellow bellied slider turtles for his birthday and the person we got them from had a 5 gallon tank for them so we had to upgrade the tank. I don't understand why there are so many bad reviews on the 40 gallon Zoo Med turtle kit. We've had it about 3 weeks now and haven't had any problems with it. There have been several reviews saying the screen didn't have a place for the filter tubes and they would have to cut a hole in it or leave the screen open a little bit. Maybe the company has done some redesigning on this but ours had a small hole in the corner of the screen and we were able to get both tubes to fit through. I will admit it takes some ingenuity to get both the intake and output tubes to fit but think of it as a puzzle piece. It only has one way it will fit and the instructions are not exactly correct. We only have 15 gallons of water in the tank right now since they are so little but as they get bigger I am sure we will have to add more. The filter works great too! We have only had to change the water about once a week. I would definitely buy this product again!

I worked so hard getting this set up only to find that the pump that comes with it does not allow the sliding lid to fit. There were missing pieces as well. Day 2 and it's already cloudy water. Never will I buy a product from zoo med again. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ValerieJ not what was sold
the filter and the mesh hood that it was sold with DO NOT work together!! There's no way to set it up without rigging it and the mesh would either have to be cut into or not closed which isn't wise when you have other pets or children. I wasn't able to get far enough into setting it up to see if the filter itself works well or not. I'm beyond disappointed that more thought and foresight wasn't put into a $262 habitat and I will be returning said habitat to the store first off day I get since I live 37 miles from nearest store!

Rated 2 out of 5 by NickTheStick For one....I hate this canister filter with a burning passion. The O-ring doesn't hold the water in and it sprays out in a jet. I bought this kit for $141 which is a deal because the lights alone are $69 online. Spacious tank and nice starter pack. Just beware the filter.
