  1. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    Hi, I have a twenty gallon tank with a tiny reeves and a small musk in it. Eventually the tank will be upgraded but for now I would like to purchase a fluval internal filter for the twenty gallon. My question is should I get the U2 or the u3, I believe the u3 would be better but I am unsure, thanks

    I'm getting a 140L tank for my Fancy. It already has a built-in filter in the hood (are they any good?) Anyways, being that Paul poos like no fish I've ever seen, I thought an internal filter would help with the load. The U4 is rated at 130-(I think)200L. Would this be too much filtration? Can...
