Zoo Med’s activated carbon filter media is made from the highest quality carbon available for superior absorption of ammonia waste. High ammonia levels can be deadly to aquatic turtles. Activated carbon is one step in reducing ammonia in your turtle habitat. We also recommend weekly water changes of at least 20%. When adding tap water (after a water change) make sure you add Zoo Med’s ReptiSafe TC-712 to remove chlorine and chloramines.
