I believe you mean the air pump. The water filter resides in the actual tank. (under water internal filter) The air pump should be bought separately and room is available under neath the tank's base.

If you are going to do saltwater, you need to be experienced with fish. I cannot, personally, say that I would ever recommend someone to use a 1 gallon tank for saltwater fish. Your fish are more delicate and sensitive thank freshwater fish. They need an environment much like the ocean (i.e. BIG).

It has a plug. You may want to get a time for the outlet though, as the switch is on the actual light, which resides under the base of the tank.

Just setup mine last week. No need for help. the tank it's self is fairly light due to the material. (just might be bulky for a smaller person) The glass is a bit heavy, but nothing to stressful. One person should be sufficient, but 2 people can make it easier. It's a pretty easy setup too.

Sorry, I can't answer in Decimals, but just setup mine last week, and it runs very silent for the most part. Adding a second filter and air pump this week, so it might get a little louder, but I don't think noise is going to be an issue with this tank as the filter is inside the tank and it's covered with a glass top. (In fact you can think of it as a gentle pond - water moving sound)

Question

Possible turtle tank?

I have a baby painted turtle, and he is currently housed in a 20L tank. However, when he gets bigger, he will need a bit more room. Shape of the tank is as important, if not more so, than just absolute liters/gallons size, and I am struggling to find something big enough length and width-wise that isn't too tall (most stands make aquariums too tall for easy access) or looks silly placed directly on the floor,

Ideally, the tank will allow him to swim freely with_out_ being so tall/deep that the bottom is hard to reach to clean daily. Also, because he breathes air and will need a canister filter (can the internal filter you mention be removed?), I realize that using the glass top will probably not be possible. As long as this tank will allow this, this might be my long-sought answer!

Can someone please provide the measurements (do not include glass top):
1.) height from tank lip to tank bottom (tank height not including pedestal)
2.) height from tank lip to floor (full height of tank plus pedestal)
3.) length of aquarium from one end of tank to the other (longest points)

4.) Plus any other insight you might have on measurements/possible conversion-to-turtle tank issues you can think of.

THANKS!!!!!
