Zoo Med 501 Turtle Canister Filter Information

If you keep aquatic turtles, finding the right equipment could be problematic. Obviously turtles are not fish, so regular fish aquarium filters are not going to cut it. Also the terrarium environment is a unique blend of land and water environment so it has its own particular filter needs. Thankfully there are many turtle environment filters out there that help clean up the waste and debris that accumulates in the water while also keeping in mind the soil and rock components that are in the water as well.

One notable turtle filter is Zoo Med 501 Turtle Canister Filter from Pet Store. This filter is great because it is easy to maintain. You can just put in the water and it handles three important filtration tasks than any decent turtle environment filter should perform. One is biological filtering. This part of the canister filters straightforward biological waste, biological debris and any sludge from natural sources that accumulate in the water and environment. Second filter is chemical filter.

While it is easy biological waste, chemical waste is actually more threatening and a lot of the times it is odorless. The chemical filter part of the Zoo Med 501 Turtle Canister Filter is extremely crucial because it effectively absorbs and cleans up chemical dangers that you might not readily perceive. Oftentimes with chemical build up, you are only able to perceive it, see it, smell it and touch it when it is too late. An effective chemical filter is definitely crucial.

Finally, the third component of this filter is mechanical filtration. This is just for filtering rocks, sand and large debris. It is a physical barrier to make sure that this debris does not clog the water of your system. If you are looking for a comprehensive filtering solution for your turtle's environment, definitely check out the Zoo Med 501 Turtle Canister Filter for effective filtering today.

Zoo Med 501 Turtle Canister Filter Small, convenient outside-the-tank canister filter for turtle tanks up to 30 gallons. Contains biological, chemical, and mechanical filtration. Clear viewing case allows you to see when filter media needs replacing. 1 year manufactures warranty.
