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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous pump, best I have ever had. I own four of them! However the pump does burn out every couple years but you can buy a replacement: but I have yet to purchase one, just found this out today. The filters cost is annoying, if you changes filters every week the water will stay really nice but you will still have to get in and scrub gunk out twice a year. Still best pump I have ever had.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor filtration/turtle unable to climb to bask This product can't keep my 35 gal tank (filled half full) for even a month. Plus, this is advertised for turtles. If you leave the water level at the fill line, there is NO WAY for a turtle to climb on the top to bask. Extremely disappointed!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but doesn't last I've had this filter for a year and it works AMAZINGLY, but my only concern is that it wears out quicker then you would expect. I had to buy a new one today because the side cracked. Besides that it has so many uses and worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps tank clean and clear I have 2 of these 1 in each of my turtle tanks. It gives them a platform to bask under the light. The filters for it are easy to get and reasonably priced. I only have to clean the tank fully once a month. Easy to clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works incredibly, though maybe a bit too well... My filter works great, and my turtle really puts it to good use! The only problem I have is that the mesh things that go inside sometimes keep water from actually going through. But that's probably my fault. Once I figure out what I'm doing wrong, it works so beautifully I want to cry. (mainly because I don't have to constantly clean it)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Parts for reptofilter I got the Decorative Reptofilter and it was great but I also had a problem; the pump stopped working after about 3 months. The pet shop does not sell the 80 GPH submersible pump and I can't seem to find one for sale on your site either.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pretty but bad THE GOOD :It looks awesome, the waterfall is cool, water stays clear because of the biological filtering of the waterfall. THE BAD: There is little circulation of water since the water drips down the waterfall, which causes the leftover food to hide underneath the filter.The "suction holes" have no suction power , what happens is the food and feces settle inside them since there is no current, it provides an ideal place for larvae of flies to thrive since there is food available and the water is warm.It does have two filter cartridges that only the bottom part is gonna be used, they are expensive to replace often and when you replace it the dirt that is stuck on the suction holes goes into the clean water chamber.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Filter and Heater I have a baby red eared slider that I found - her home for now until I upgrade to a 180 gallon tank is a 55 gallon the the Repto Filter and Heater. They work great and she loves her home. The Rept Filter does a fantastic job of filters with little drag on the water since she is not that big and not that strong of a swimmer yet the filter does not effect her at all. She loves to hug the side of the filter. Thinking that I might upgrade to the Viquarium shortly for her. I would recommend this filt to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! I absolutely love this waterfall, and so does my turtle "Shelly". I’ve had to replace the water pump twice since I bought it about 2 years ago, however, that is my fault, sometimes I forget about the water pump when I change the filters and clean the aquarium…oops. The aquarium is setup in my bedroom and listening to the water is quite relaxing at bedtime. My only “complaint” is that the rocks in the aquarium get sucked into the holes in the waterfall and cause clogs. I will definitely continue to recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks Great, Runs... okay. The Decorative Filter is a great touch to any terrarium! The only trouble that I have with it, is that the water pump gets clogged, a lot. Cleaning of the pump is crucial to maintain, as well as changing the filters inside the waterfall enclosure. My pump is completely ruined now and I am stuck with having to buy a new setup all together. Tetra Fauna provides no separate purchase pump in case yours brakes down. If you can keep up with the up keep on it, I will definitely say yes in buying it! My Chinese Water Dragon loves to sit on top of the waterfall all the time!
