Rated 1 out of 5 by from DISGUSTING!!!! I bought this piece of JUNK about a month ago. My poor turtles were living in NASTY water the whole time!!! Insects were laying eggs in the filter without me knowing!!! I am absolutely outraged. I paid $60 for this thing thinking it would make my turtles happy, BUT NO!!!! I will never buy anything from this company ever again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Chemical odor! Interesting there is another review in regard to chemical odor. I called cust service and the gentleman asked what I had done to cause the odor?! He also said cust must pay return shipping. I have used Tetrafauna products for many years, but after ordering a second filter, paying overnight shipping cost, turns out smells just as bad as the first which contaminated the entire tank. I'm done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy turtles pump is working. I thought our two year old pump was broken because it would intermittently vibrate, but wouldn't pump. I am thankful I called Tetrafauna and found out I could take the pump apart to clean it. It's working well again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not sure how to rate just yet. I just bought it because it looked awesome and my turtles can easily climb to bask. The water level is just below the max line. Unfortunately within 24 hrs. the water was very cloudy. I did rinse it well before installing in the tank due to the smell of chemical. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product fits 40 gal tank We bought our rock filter filter 3 years ago,our 3 turtles love it. With 3 turtles we have to clean filter every 2 weeks. First we thought rocks to steep so we built a ramp, then we found turtles climbing up the steepest side no problem and took ramp out. Filter does keep water clean, we rinse out filters every 2 weeks and only replace every 2 months, keep cost down. If we every get another tank we will get another rock filter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 2 Broken within a couple of months Bought two of these and within a couple of months both make loud grinding noises coming from the pump. They still function but are terribly loud. I've tried adjusting the metal rod that the prop fits onto but no luck. Don't buy this product if you are working with sand base. That is the only thing I can figure would do this unless it happens to all of them .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is Fantastic I just bought this because my old filter broke the turles love it. Great bargin plus it comes with two filters inside already. Keeps the tank clean and best of all the turtles can climb on it to get some basking time.

Hello. Can replacement pumps be purchased? I work with disabled adults and one of them has a water turtle, a mud turtle to be accurate. He purchased this waterfall pump and filter. I believe that there is a short in the cord.

Asked by: grnelson
The SP 75 in our pond line is a replacement pump for this item. However, it does not come with the o ring, tubing, etc., that this pump uses to connect to the river bed, so keep that in mind. Also, the pump your patient has comes with a 2-year warranty so we'd be happy to replace it for them if there is a short. Just call 1-800-526-0650. BREX

Is there a replacement pump for the Decorative Reptile Retrofilter

Asked by: hbho51
The SP75 and SP140 in our pond line work, but they do not come with the adapter, tubing, o ring, etc. If the pump is not working, simply open it and take out the impeller for cleaning. If you need instructions on how to do this, please email BREX

I have the Turtle waterfall filter , I really like it and the turtles love it, I had no trouble finding replacement pumps, but unable to find replacement vinyl hose that fit the pump and the nozzle that the water flows through

Asked by: Phyllis 43
Those pieces aren't actually sold separately, in part because the pump rarely quits working. If it stops, you just open it and clean it out. We have the pieces you are describing to send out upon request so call 1-800-526-0650. BREX

Hello.I called both numbers listed and no answer.I noticed a noise coming from it. I moved the elbow piece and it stopped making that sound for 1 day.Now it is has started again. I have tried several things nothing works

Asked by: Cowmicky
Hi Cowmicky. The only part capable of making noise is the impeller. You need to clean the impeller and the housing it sits in. We are happy to walk you through this or you can download the instructions from our website. Our phone number is: 1-800-526-0650.

Can it be used as corner filter in fish tank with tropical fish? (This one looks a lot nicer than the current filter). Fish tank size is 6O litres (15 gallons), water height is 3O cm (12 inches).

Asked by: KKvell
I'm sure it could although there are plenty of nice fish aquarium filters on the market. We do not typically recommend fully submerging it, but it might work as long as you replace cartridges regularly and when the water level is low during a water change. You would need to drain the tank about 3-4 inches. BREX

I am in the need of a replacement pump for the reptofilter where can I find one at??

Asked by: Jan5
We do not sell this pump separately, per se, but our Statuary Pump 75 works well in this system. Be sure to keep your o rings, elbow, and short tubes though, as those are not available. BREX

I need to replace a pump for one of these are they available and where can i get them online, i live in the cincinnati area

Asked by: John327
They are not sold separately as a replacement for this filter. The SP75 and SP140 Statuary Pumps are the pumps recommended for replacement. They do not come with the tubing, elbow or o ring. If your pump is just not running, you probably need to open it and pull out the impeller for cleaning. BREX

Asked by: Marjury 23
The Statuary Pump 140 in our pond line will replace the pump. However, if you do not have the tubing, o rings, and elbow, you will need to go to a DIY hardware store to find some suitable replacements or give us a call and we can send you some. 1-800-526-0650. BREX
