I want to house a DBT in a 75 gallon aquarium. What would be the best filter to get? Thanks!
It seems to be the levers that disconnect the hoses.
In the closed position it leaves a vacuum that can be relieved by opening the valves before trying to open the lid.
I placed Vaseline on the O ring and it helps a bit.
Thanks for the replies. With such filtration, how often do you need to do water changes?
I'd change about 50% once a week or at least every two weeks. Maybe a little less once the filter gets "cycled".Thanks for the replies. With such filtration, how often do you need to do water changes?
My ouachita map males are fully grown at 4" but my females are 9". So unless you have a larger male, your turtle may have some pretty good growing yet to do!On the plus side, my ouichita map turtle (i had to ID him myself, this is my guess) is fully grown at 5 inches so I can get away with a 55g tank.
DBTs are not beginner turtles. They really need brackish water. I know lots of people will say they can adjust to fresh water but my experience is that you will always be fighting skin and she'll infections if you keep them in fresh water. You are setting yourself up Formica more work than simple filtration with a DBT.I want to house a DBT in a 75 gallon aquarium. What would be the best filter to get? Thanks!
