Need advice on terrapin filters?

hi bros,
need some advice on terrapin filters。
Currently i am using a small 2ft Black color OHF (Aquazonic - 1800L/hr) for my terrapins tub。

The Black color OHF box seems quite small only can fit about 1-1。5 kg of CR rings and a thick black sponge。
currently water quality is still ok due to small terrapins and i also do weekly 50% WC。
i have another 2nd terrapin tub which i use a small hang on fliter HOB 550L/hr, it is very noisy and under powered。
i want to change a better filter。
i see some other brands of small OHF, like Dolphin P808, Boyu, Sobo etc。。。。
i am not sure which one is better? can advice me?
thanks and have a nice day。

How big is your tank?

How big r your terrapin?
Got budget or no budget?

>hello shifu 2ring,
i currently keep my 3 terrapins about size 1。5-2 inch in a ikea storage box。 the ikea storage box size is 2。5ftx2ftx1。5ft。 i got these ikea boxes for free。
low budget
i have 2 ikea boxes, 2 tier so no space for sump。
but i am looking to upgrade to 2 blue tubs 3。5ftx2。5ftx1ft by end of the year。 still looking for the 2 tier metal stand。。。。
thanks bro

thanks bro With weekly wc of 50% I doubt u need any filtration system for 3 terrapin in 2 blue tubs in future
>hi shifu 2ring,
thanks for your helpful advice。
Very Sorry i think i did not explain clearly。。。paisay。。。let me try to explain better。。。i have 3 terrapins in each tub。
currently performing 50% wc weekly。 but if possible can tahan longer like 2-3 weeks, will be better and less shag for me。
i think once the terrapins grows up, sure has alot waste,jardini fish so are those 2ft black color OHF sufficient to use?
i think i may get the Dolphin P808 OHF for my 2nd tub,Need advice on terrapin filters? but not sure if its a good choice。
Bcos too many choice, like Aquazonic BK-4, Boyu, Sobo etc。。。etc。。。 not sure if there are any difference between them。。。
thanks bros

thanks bros Honestly if u ask me, to deal with full grown adult terrapin, a OHF is a cmi type of filter。
Y? Simple。 Dirt is deliver to the filter wool via your pump and sad to say, before the dirt that your big terrapin give out can reached your filter wool, it will get stuck somewhere at your pump。
So my advise is to use a sump filtration system for your terrapin。 For OHF, dealing with small particles and micro poo still ok
If solid type of poo sure stuck at the pump hence no work is done。
Think twice。 Will share with u guys a up and coming project on Aquatic turtle keeping with sump filtration system
>If you cannot set up the sump for the space, you try to take out the poo before they disolve reach to the pump。 This way is a little troublesome and time consuming but you can save a lot of water。
You can also try Hikari turtle sticks which is proven clear water, less smell reduce waste products from turtles。
Please share us a few photos if you can。

U will have to net the poo out whenever u saw one to prevent getting stuck at the pump。 Thats the only way if insisting in using a OHF。
>hi bros 2rings and junjie,

i read the online forums the Angmohs likes to use canister filters for terrapins。
