First you have to take out the turtle(s). But be careful taking out a turtle can be a dangerous task. A turtle bite is painful and the don't let go. So try grabing the turtle from its side, and not put your fingers in front of the turtle.

Step 1:

Before going on put the turtle(s) in a container with atleast 18 ounces of water, in order to keep the turtle(s) hydrated. Next unplug the filter and take it out of the tank with any other decorative objects.
