My turtles are getting bigger and bigger. My filtration system hasn’t been able to keep the water clean. Making daily water changes and skimming the water with a scoop whenever I pass by is a pain.
Yesterday I splurged and bought the best from the local home center. I bought the GEX Mega Power 9012, designed for tanks of 90-120 cm (or 150-300 l). My tank isn’t so big, but specialists say three times the filtration of a fish tank is recommended for turtles. So, if your tank is 20 liters, get a 60 liter filter.
After two days of using the filter, I’m quite impressed. The water is very clean. It looks drinkable! The only problems I have with it are:
- it’s a little noisy, so I turn it off at night
- it’s heavy and big
