Kordon Tidy Turtle keeps tanks and bowls remarkably clean and reduces those infamous turtle odors. This safe, effective water additive uses naturally occurring beneficial bacteria to break down organic debris in gravel and filters and remove sludge for a cleaner, healthier aquatic turtle habitat.

  • Keeps tanks & gravel clean and improves water quality
  • Reduces odors caused by foul water
  • Breaks down organic debris & removes sludge


Tidy Turtle contains bacteria that have been specially developed to remove sludge and other organic debris from gravel, filters, tubing, and anywhere else it accumulates. Because it uses only naturally occurring and/or beneficial bacteria and does not affect pH (acidity/alkalinity), it is safe for aquatic turtles, amphibians, and other aquatic life. These bacteria are 100% non-toxic, non-pathogenic, and feed only on decomposing organic matter. In other words, they are not a health hazard to humans, fish, pets, plants, or wildlife!

Now the technical stuff: 4 ounces of Tidy Turtle contains more than 2 billion Colony Forming Units (CFU) of heterotrophic bacteria per milliliter, as well as the enzymes that help break down turtle waste products. These various species of bacteria consume carbohydrates, proteins, starches, fats and cellulose that build up in turtle habitats and turtle aquariums as the result of feeding, turtle waste, decaying plant matter and other organics. The Bacillus species in Tidy Turtle can function in aerobic and anaerobic conditions, allowing these organisms to function in the best and worst of turtle habitat or turtle aquarium conditions.

Made in the USA.

Directions: Shake well. Add 2 teaspoons (10ml) for every ten gallons of water (37.85L) directly into the water. Repeat dosage after 24 hours. Repeat the above steps bi-weekly or when wanting to remove visible sludge. To increase effectiveness, add directly into filter media, particularly activated carbon. Activated carbon is an excellent surface area for the Bacillus sp. bacteria in Tidy Turtle. Ultraviolet sterilizers should be turned off for up to a day after application.

WHERE WE SHIP
We ship across the contiguous 48 Unites States. At this time we cannot ship to Hawaii, Alaska, PO Boxes, APO, FPO or DPO addresses. Sorry about that! :(

SHIPPING COSTS
Most orders will ship for a flat fee of $9.95 for Standard (4-8 business days from date of shipment), which means you can load up your cart and shipping will only be $9.95 to ship the whole thing!

All orders will always be trackable once shipped

Note: Shipping is typically via FedEx, but USPS services may be utilized. Standard shipping typically uses FedEx SmartPost which may handoff to the USPS for final delivery. 

PRE-SHIPMENT TIME
Processing time can vary depending on the time of year, but most orders ship after 1-2 business days (M-F). Anything ordered around major holidays will likely experience demand-delays that may add 3-4 days to your processing time before your items ships. This is unavoidable due simply to a higher-than-usual demand around those times.

Note:
We carry two types of products: reptile and amphibian supplies as well as lifestyle products, including books, home goods, apparel, art, and commissioned work.  Given our lifestyle products represent independent stores, the price of shipping may differ or not qualify for the flat rate. This will be noted on the product page.
