Although this may be a great filter if you have a tank set up for fish, it is not recommended for water turtles. I have two water turtles and was looking for a really good filter. My husband came across this one on this site and it said on the description that it would work for turtle tanks. Turtle tanks need half water and half land to suit the turtles needs for basking and other living needs. With this filter you have to have the water level very high. My turtles were freaked out with the water that high and no where to bask. If they were to bask they would burn themselves because their heat lamp was so close to their basking dock. The only way this filter would work is if you buy an extension for the in and out filter tubes and adjust the flow according to how high you want the water level to be. So the description should be changed on this website because it really is not meant for turtles and mainly meant for a fish tank.
