Zoo Med™Turtle Clean 511 External Canister Filter is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from Good filter I suspect most of the issues people are having with this filter is running it without purging all the air from the canister. Well over two years of use, this filter has kept a 55 gallon tank very clear and clean with a full grown painted turtle, 3 cory's, and a few feeder gold fish that the turtle won't eat. It is a bit of a pain to clean, but the flow only slows after a month or so. I will be replacing the hoses as they have hardened over the years. But that is normal for that type of hose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm amazed So I don't write reviews but have to tell you bought this filter 3 weeks ago. I have adult female and adult male yellow belly sliders almost same as a red eared slider had them for 10years now. Since they've been adults maintenance on tank has been a struggle( 75gallon 34 gallons of water in it ) with keeping it clean and odor down constantly cleaning changing water weekly or by weekly since I got this filter water was improving now it's the clearest I've ever seen since they were first bought I do believe the bio media kicked in other day cause went from cloudy to clear in a day spend the money well worth it

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible! This filter came with the 40 gallon tank that I bought for my Red Eared Slider. It worked great for a few months. It typically keeps my turtles water clean for about 2-3 weeks (I only fill the tank half way). But then it started to not work every time I would plug it back in after cleaning. I would have to shake the canister a few times and then it would start. Well a month ago, it wouldn't start at all so I went and bought a new one. Worked great for the first couple of weeks, but now it is also starting to not want to start when I plug it in. Personally I think this filter sucks and will be looking for a new one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Filter I have two small painted turtles, it did a very nice job keeping them clean for a month, which is a while for me. However, it wasn't strong enough to clean out my sliders tank, and only kept them clean for a week.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not meet expectations. This came with the 40 gallon turtle aquarium I purchased for 2 baby turtles. From the set up this thing sucked. I took it back to the store and exchanged it for a new one just in case it was defective. Nope. It still sucks. To include this weak and powerless filter in a set up for a 40 gallon tank it should be powerful. It's not. The water has been continuously murky and gross. I ended up purchasing a 2nd filter to just clean the water. The entire set up sucks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from filter operation 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

Would this be a good option for a Axolotl tank?

Asked by: Axolotl3
No. Sponge filters are the absolute BEST option for axies.

Can this filter be used for just a regular fish aquarium?

Asked by: Mitch 1
yes it can be but unless you have really dirty fish or a lot of fish in the aquarium I wouldn't. look at the canister filters for fish.

Is this only for turtles. Wouldn't this be or for fish as well

Asked by: Chantalcollett

One of the comments on here mentions making sure to purge all of the air from the canister. Is there a certain way to do that, or is filling the canister full of water sufficient?

Asked by: Missymissy

we have had this for about 2 months, first one that came with tank didn't work properly, the 2nd one works fine .... when it is working. It stops every 4 days or so for no apparent reason. Does anyone have any suggestions?
