Hi there, anyone knows why the southern painted turtle is not allowed in SG? Thought this species is smaller than the red eared sliders. If you know where to get, pls PM me. Thks.

Also, which filter and UV basking light brand and model is recomended for a turtle tank? Thanks!

Hi, I have a full grown female adult terrapin

If I were to buy C2 fluval filter, can I just rely on that and skip changing the tank water?

Or I still have to change once every month

Depends on how big your terrapin's poop is. I got 3x terrapins around 2 inch and I don't think fluval C2 is good enough for me.

I am currently using these from taobao. Never change water since.

Only need to top up water every 2 weeks.
Change filter from the drawer whenever it's dirty(around 6-7 days)
