Zoo Med Turtle Clean 15 External Canister Filter for up to 15 Gallons
Providing adequate filtration is an integral part of aquatic turtle care, as these fascinating creatures can be quite messy. To help you maintain optimal water quality for your shell-dwelling pals, Zoo Med has developed the Turtle Clean 15 External Canister Filter.

It features an adjustable flow rate that maxes out at 79 gph, and includes an optional spray bar to increase oxygenation and efficiency.
Stage 1 - Biological - ceramic rings provide an ideal surface for the colonization of beneficial bacteria. They help improve water quality by converting harmful waste (e.g. ammonia) into relatively harmless nitrates.
Stage 2 - Chemical - a pouch filled with premium activated carbon removes potentially harmful contaminants and impurities including discoloration, heavy metals, odors, and organic waste.
Stage 3 - Mechanical - a fine mechanical filter sponge effectively traps and removes debris and particulates from the water (e.g. uneaten food, waste). It also provides supplementary biological filtration.
