The Zoo Med Mechanical Filter Sponge acts as the first line of defense in your aquatic reptile environment. It effectively catches and removes dirt and floating debris to maintain clean, healthy water. For optimum water quality, Zoo Med recommends weekly water changes of at least 20%. When adding tap water, be sure to use a conditioning agent to remove chlorine and chloramines.
NOTE: This filter media is designed to fit the Zoo Med Turtle Clean 15 Filter. The Turtle Clean 15 was formerly known as the Turtle Clean 501.
- Remove top of your 15 (formerly 501) Filter and simply replace your old sponge with this new one.
- Rinse filter sponge weekly or as needed. If your water flow (on your outtake spray bar) decreases substantially, then it is time to clean the filter sponge. Replace filter sponge if you notice wear and tear.

All I can say about Pet Mountain is nice assortment of fairly priced products, reasonable delivery cost and fast and thoughtful service.
I purchased the Turtle Canister Filter 501 and I got this along with it as a replacement if needed, while I haven't needed to use it, it looked to be the same that came with the filter itself. It works for it (as it should being made for it) easy to clean out, just run it under water and squeeze it a few times, you know, like with all sponges.
