I have a 75 Gal. tank w/a Fluval 404 filter.
I initally added the proper amount (I think) of Zoo Med Reptisafe and Bio Care Turtle Clean. Is this too much stuff? Should I be adding a weekly treatment? If so how much and what? I also have Exo Terra Biotize & Calcimize. Are they the same as the other stuff? Please, if anyone has any suggestions or what ever works best ...let me know. Also, how many if any of those little turtle shaped blocks should I put in the tank?? I sound very confused...duh! Thanks in advance to all who reply!

I think all this stuff you are using is too much. I don\'t use anything in my water but a Calcium Block. I just leave the water out for atleast 24 hours so the Chlorine can vaporize, and it works just fine. Turtles aren\'t rilly fussy about water as long as it is kept clean. Its good that you have a Cannister filter. Sometimes when I forget to leave the water out I use AquaSafe to get rid of the chlorine. But either than that I add nothing to the water. Strive for Crystal Clear Water!
