Exo Terra Turtle Clean Biological Turtle Habitat Cleaner 8.4 oz (Mfg# PT1999)
Wouldn't be without it
I have two Midwestern Painted Turtles who are over 30 years old. I have always fed them in a dish pan in the sink because they are such messy eaters and it saves getting the food mess in their tank (a 55 gallon tank 2/3 full of water with 2 basking areas). I have always done a 10 -15% water change weekly and have added conditioner blocks for years. One turtle has had a series of severe ear infections over the last 3 years. At my vet's suggestion I started using regular tap water and not using any dechlorinator and I also add NutraFin Turtle Clean to get rid of any organic gunk in the tank. She has not had an ear infection since I started this new routine. I have actually missed a few water changes and the Turtle Clean keeps it clean enough that I no longer have to worry about her so much. This is a great product.
