Good for our turtle 7/4/2014
We have a year old female Red Ear Slider in a 40 gallon breeder tank with maybe 25-30 gallons of water in it. Turtles need stronger filters for the amount of water in their tanks as they produce a lot of waste. So far this has kept her water very clear, and the jet circulates the water so the waste doesn't all pile up in one area (we use the filter without the spray bar).
It's been an excellent filter so far for the price, compared to canister filters which are known to leak. Very easy to clean, snaps apart and back together without trouble. Filter media is inexpensive.
True the directions are not very clear but it's not difficult to put together if you have used similar filters before. I am only reserving a 5 star rating because we have had it for a fairly short time and I can't forsee any mechanical problems it might have in the future.
