Hi Kate, what I did for my turtle tank is used a non working whisper filter and attached a soft plastic pipping piece to the end of the whisper tube and to the output valve on my powerhead. Works just like new =)

I have been lurking on this list for several months in preparation for
an exhibit I am working on that will include some native fish species.
But right now, I need some help in selecting an aquarium filter that is
suitable for aquatic turtles. The turtles will be housed in custom built
aquariums that are 30"w x 24" d x 17" h and they will have 1/3 to 1/2
water level. Most filters I am finding are designed for a full tank of
water. Any suggestions?
