    Well I finally added an in-tank filter for my 2 baby spotted turtles. The setup came out awesome and the little guys seem to really like it. I had to put a rock-barrier in front of the intake cuz 1 of em got near enough that it just spun him around like a top. I also added small pond rocks and created a pool to put the blackworms in for them to feed. So far the worms stay in it and none have been ****ed into the filter and the turtles already figured out where they are,,,,they feed like sharks !!! I'll post pics soon

    Great Ken, which type of filter did you use a submersible or upright. I use both depending on situation, but prefer the upright for the ease of cleaning and waterfall effect.

    What size tank are they in and how much was the filter? I just use a fluval 4 plus submergable right now. I have an RES and a yellow belly slider, they are both in a 50 Breeder right now. :D

    The whisper 10 does 10 gallons per hour, I like to use double the filtration capacity (20 gph for 10 gallons of water) in a turtle tank, since you never fill a turtle tank up to the top you have to estimate.
