Try a submersible filter designed for turtles, not fish. I really liked one that was inside a plastic cliff- it created a nice waterfall and did a good job keeping clean. The fact is turtles are dirty and high maintenance as far as cleaning, though. Nothing will substitute for a weekly vacuum and scrub.

Try the TetraFuana ReptoFilter it is amazing I have tried possibly ever filter for my turtle. It works amazing and keeps the tank so clear and clean. Just changing the filter every couple of weeks makes it easy to clean as well.

vilote, I have a 20 gallon long tank for my red slider and the 511 Turtle Canister Filter from ZooMed is the first filter that has actually cleaned the tank and kept it clean without me having to clean the filter every two weeks. I have had it hooked up for about 2 months and only had to clean the filter/tank once (just recently). I'm not sure how it would do for two turtles, but it is worth a try. It is by far the best filter I've found for turtles so far (that can be bought at a local pet store and not special ordered).

Yes, I think you can always use a larger filter on a smaller tank, I have been doing that for a while (especially if you have a turtle, it's more helpful to use a more powerful filter if you want the tank to be clear of the larger amounts of waste they produce) but know that it's pretty powerful, so if you have smaller fish in the tank, it could be bad for them.

I dont have any experience with chemical "waste removers" as I cant imagine whatever it is that breaks down waste is so great for my turtle herself, but I can explain the water conditioner to you a bit.
Water conditioners, which are designed to remove chlorine and balance tap water, should be applied to the water in a bucket, PRIOR to adding it to your turtle tank. Water straight from the tap is not ideal and could harm your turtles in large doses. Once the water has been conditioned and added to the tank, it will mix up with the water that is already in there. A filter would not be able to cleanse the entire bucket full of water before it touched your turtle, see? However, a filter is a great thing to have! it extends the time between vacuums and reduces ammonia and other toxins created by turtle waste.
I had a very bad experience with the canister filter that I purchased, but had success previously with a decorative cliff that had a submersible filter inside it (and it made a nice little water fall) and before that a cheap little submersible.
I hope that helps a little.
