Keep aquatic turtle habitats clean with this powerful canister filter. The Hang-On-Tank (H.O.T.) Magnum is actually two filters in one. It is perfect for everyday filtration or as a convenient maintenance filter for clean polished water. The easy setup design makes it simple to switch from a dedicated filter that provides efficient mechanical and chemical filtration to a water-polishing micron filter. Self-starting pump silently directs a certified 250 gallons per hour flow rate for exceptional filtration and water movement. Included Black Diamond Premium Activated Carbon helps improve water clarity and odors commonly associated with aquatic turtle habitats. Snap-lock, leak-proof connectors eliminate the need for additional hoses or tubing. UL-Listed. 8 ft cord.
Includes: H.O.T. Magnum Canister Filter, Micron Cartridge, Carbon/Media Container, Filter Sleeve, and 8 oz Black Diamond Premium Activated Carbon.
Note: Water polishing Micron Cartridge is not intended for continuous use. Recommended as a maintenance filter during water changes or when added "water-polishing" is required.
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.
