I have a 55 gal display tank in my office. several years ago I raised razorback musk turtles in it, recently it has had fish. I would like to do turtles again. My biggest problem was keeping water clean. I would like some specific filter recomendations. I picture the tank about 2/3 full with flourescent lighting and a basking area with an incadescent bulb. I want easy to clean/maintain. I realize I still need to do frequent water changes. I am willing to pay more for an efficient filter that maintains easier and cheaper. Must keep in mind this tank is a display, it can't be overyly noisy or unsightly. The turtles will go in as hatchlings and move to an outdoor pond when they outgrow the tank.
