Decent Filter/Aquarium Decor
on May 28, 2015
I have a ~5-5.5" Red-Eared Slider and like many said, this is VERY steep for the turtle to climb and bask! My turtle tried so hard and couldn't get to the top. I ended up buying Zoo Med's Small Turtle Bank Dock (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000256ELM) and angled it to make a ramp so he can get up there on his own. The filter provides pretty decor but you will have to take the filters out and rinse every few days since they do get clogged. Not a very powerful filter so I try not to feed my turtle in the tank. Like many suggested, buy the Biobags which are much cost effective than the Reptofilters.
-Natural Looking Decor
-Hard to clean especially the inside with all the nooks & cranny. Some pieces inside started chipping off.
-Maximum water line limits you from really filling up the tank-- wish this item was taller! For now, I'll try to find something to place underneath to raise it inside the tank
