In Reply to: Powerhead in snapper's tank posted by thecrowes on January 13, 2003 at 13:05:10:
:Hi- I have two small ally snappers in a 55 gal aquarium with two Aquaclear 805 powerheads to filter it. They've been in the tank for a month - doing great. Come Saturday - one of them gets it's tail stuck in the powerhead and almost drowned. Does anyone know what I can put around the powerhead to block the turtle from getting stuck? He got his tail stuck on the water flow adjuster...thanks.
The risk of hurting, or even killing your turtle(s) is not worth the risk. You may have to get a little creative and modify your filter/setup. If nothing works...get a new filter system.
