Rated 5 out of 5 by from This waterfall filter has a strong waterfall effect and does a great job of filtration. Also has a lot of room for a abundance of lava rock Great product, but way too overpriced, it's only a pail with a large mouth. Should be a lot cheaper.

pond filters for indoor 100g turtle tank

hi. i have a large res turtle in a 100g tank indoors. my eheim canister just broke and i want to improve my setup and start anew...specifically with stronger filtration. i was hoping you could recommend a setup for my turtle. i was hoping on a waterfall filter, a prefilter, and a pump. because turtles are so dirty, i want a setup for a 300-400g tank. i would appreciate any assistance or advice you could give me on how to proceed. thank you!

You have come to the right place as I am nicknamed Crazy Turtle Lady! I only own one, but have rescued and re-homed several, and a very good friend runs a turtle rescue, so let's just say I'm pretty knowledgeable about these cute, interesting animals.If you are planning an actual aquarium for this 300 gallon system, I would recommend one with corner overflows, and a canister filter plumbed into each end. (I use the Magniflow 360 for my turtle's 90 gallon tank, works like a charm, we make it under our Marineland brand).Since you indicated you wanted more like a pond set up, the other way to go would be with something like a stock tank used for watering cattle, horses, etc. This is obviously not as attractive, but many people set them up in their basement for their turtles. With this set up, I would recommend a Tetra Pond Submersible box filter filled with lava rock as well as the pads that come with it, attached to a Water Garden Pump 325 or preferably the 550. The pump could then pump out to our waterfall filter which can also house lava rock as well as filter media. This would sit outside on the edge of the tank.If you wanted something more for inside an actual aquarium I do not know of a prefilter I would recommend. I would still use a canister filter, no matter what, and you could build a waterfall at one end, and direct the canister tubing to return over the waterfall. To build the waterfall, plexiglas and styrofoam both work well, then attach rock as needed or build it up in front of the wall. There are also ways of gluing rock in, but that is pretty difficult.Extend the tubing down, if necessary, by attaching a hose clamp and vinyl tubing to the outlet after removing the diffuser. This is what I did with my tank, to quiet the noise. I do not have a waterfall, but you could easily create one this way.For more ideas, visit www.turtlerescues.com. Julie has lots of ponds and aquariums for her turtle enclosures. She typically uses our canister filters.BREX

Can this sit on the plant shelf of a pond?

Asked by: marksfam
That depends on how wide it is, but yes, it should be able to. You just need a flat, stable surface about 18" wide. Most plant shelfs are not that wide, would be the only issue I could see.BREX

What are the dinemsions of this waterfall/filter? I am specifically looking for total height from bottom of sump to top of housing.

Wondering about total height to determine if it will fit. Have an above ground planter that this would sit under so making sure I have clearance to clean and maintain - dont want to remove the planter - unless I absolutely have to - it is a baby grand piano that we are using as a flower bed.
Asked by: ScottG
Thank you for your question. The total height of the Waterfall filter is 12.25 inches from the bottom of the housing to the very top of the spillway.MINI

Do you have replacement adapters for the hose. Mine broke today when I was removing the filter for the winter.

My product is the Tetra Waterfalls filter
Asked by: ponderguy
Please call or email us directly. If you are referring to the adaptor that comes with the waterfall, yes, we have that one.BREX
