The turtle kit is waste of money because we found that in less than 6 months we would have to be buying a bigger tank and better filter! After two weeks the water was very cloudy. We took apart the filter cleaned it replaced the cartridge and still can not keep up with one turtle. We were having to replace the cartridge every week and still could not keep up. After a lot of research we found out that red ear slider turtle needs about a 75-100 gallon tank and a filter that can filter two to three times that much water due to the turtles producing much more waste than fish due. Do your homework before hand and read the blogs on the turtles before purchasing this kit and you will save yourself the headache and money.
Cons: hard to clean, low quality

Liked the overall package, though the filter could be a little better. Not big enough for size of tank. and was my fault I didn't notice it was not a full 40 gallon tank so can only fill not quite half way but a nice starter will be buying a bigger tank but will be able to use all the attachments that came with it
Pros: easy to clean, sturdy
