How often should you clean a 20 gallon tank that holds 1 small turtle and doesn\'t have a filter? The turtle isn\'t fed in it.

Thanks!

Personally, I would get a filter, even if it is a small one. Is there a reason you do not have one? Turtles are dirty little critters and filtering the water is important to their health. So with no filter, I would recommend changing the water daily.

In my large tank I use a Diatom filter. However Reeb is in a seperate tank, 10 gal. in which I put a small sand shark filter. It was $15, and it uses cartridge filters that run me about $3 a month to run.
