I\'ve changed my turtles to a new home, a 40 gallon aquarium (it is nice). The question is, i had a 501 ZooMed filter for my turtles in their 20 gallon tank. The info in ZooMed says that the 501 filter works for aquariums up to 30 gallon. Do you think it is still ok with the 40 gallon tank??? I doubt i have the 40 gallon water level,,,probably i have like 30 gallons of water. This should be ok right???

I had the same 501 ZooMed filter as yours and I used it when I had a 10 gallon tank. I would recommend for you to get a much larger filter for your 40 gallon. Maybe one that should be used for a 60 or 80 gallon tank.

Turtles are messy creatures. Get a filter that\'s rated for 3X the size of your tank (a 120-gallon tank).
