5 Star Review   By OahuLove on PETCO - Nov 19, 2011    ( See more reviews from PETCO )

My boyfriend and I received two fire belly toads from friends of our and decided to buy this when building their new home. The frogs share a home with 5 neon teteras and this works wonderfully. It looks nice and does the job! Highly recommended!

Waterfall
4 Star Review   By mommoshome on PETCO - Jun 25, 2011    ( See more reviews from PETCO )

It's a cool item, quieter than the usual aquarium filter. The only negative is that the difference between the max water level and top of the waterfall does not allow for the turtles to climb up there and bask as advertised.

Not so great!
2 Star Review   By SoldierWife on PETCO - Sep 27, 2010    ( See more reviews from PETCO )

I bought this filter for my two RES hatchlings. It worked great for the first few months when they were really small but now that they are about 6 months old it does a horrible job. I have to clean the water on almost a daily basis as it doesn't pic of anything from the bottom of the tank. The food particles left over from there pellets make a huge mess and the filter doesn't help one bit. I have just ordered a canister filter and this is going to become just a decoration in the thank... That is about all its good for.

4 Star Review   By PinkLily on PETCO - Aug 20, 2010    ( See more reviews from PETCO )

I have had the filter for approximately two weeks and I can tell that it has had an impact on my tank. My two red eared sliders were reluctant of the new design of their tank but after a few days took a real liking to it. The waterfall feature is really nice and I love the natural look of it. I can understand the other comments of it not being strong enough but I just scoop up any residue left on the bottom of the tank myself. I really don't expect a filter to pick up turtle droppings so it wasn't a problem. Overall it is a nice filter!

very cool!
5 Star Review   By eddie140bx on PETCO - Jan 9, 2010    ( See more reviews from PETCO )

Ok, First off this thing is amazing..I had the Exo-Terra medium waterfall, But it was made cheaply and cracked in 1 day. This waterfall/filter is made heavy duty. The texture of the waterfall is very strong and feels real. This comes with 2 filters, the water pressure is great compared to the Exo-Terra product. Its very silent, if you have the top places wrong it will make a humming noise.

2 Star Review   By Kate11 on PETCO - Nov 25, 2009    ( See more reviews from PETCO )

I bought this for my turtle thinking that it would be great for the tank that my fiance biult for him. No, the sucction is horrible, crum remains to stay on the bottom of the tank. Super hard to clean, I take water and woosh it around and algae debri still stays in the bottom cant fit a sponge in it and is very sharp. I ended up buying a Zoo med 501 filter and now I use both. My tutle loves water flowing so both filters work great for that. The filters only last a week then it doesnt allow the water to get to the filter so it makes a horrible noise. Just a pain all in all. Great decoration though!

Great item for small ponds
5 Star Review   By Sunjo on PETCO - Aug 8, 2009    ( See more reviews from PETCO )

I made a 4 gallon salt water pond for my hermit crabs and stuck this in the corner, I also had monapi wood in the pond which discolored the water quite badly and the filter actually cleared that up in 8 hours or so. I would definitely recommend this item, it's nice to look at, and the motor is very quiet, just make sure you have at least 4 inches deep of water for it to work.

not happy with the filter
1 Star Review   By tip109 on PETCO - Jun 15, 2009    ( See more reviews from PETCO )

I bought this filture for my two red ear sliders. The filter isn't very strong, and it left poo on the bottom of the tank. They hadn't been in the tank for more than three days when the filter started to make funny sounds, and not cleaning the tank at all! Not good at all.

Great Look, but filters need some remodeling!
4 Star Review   By Kleopatra on PETCO - Feb 2, 2009    ( See more reviews from PETCO )

I bought this filter because I wanted to create a waterfall feature for my red-earred slider turtle. It was easy to put together, but it's not as the description states, the lid does not lock into position. It looks great in my 35 gallon flat back hexago tank and keeps the water moving around. However, they could've done a better job with the filter. It seems the filter is too small to accomodate the amount of debris a turtle gives. What I find myself doing is changing or just rinsing off the fliters every week. Once the filters are filled, the unit will not fill, thus will not overflow into the tank. It's also a little difficult to clean once it get really dirty, the bottom stays filled with algae and debris, I finding putting water in and shaking it around to be helpful. Other than that, I love it! My turtle sometimes tries to climb it too! Great accessory to any tank.

Great
5 Star Review   By Audithom on PETCO - Dec 29, 2008    ( See more reviews from PETCO )

I was hesitant buying this, But glad I did. I have this filter running for almost a month with a razorback musk, 10 feeder guppies, and a couple baby snails. The water has been crystal clear and does not smell the least. looks great, and natural. The only problem with is that the holes are big enough for my fish to hide inside..

Great Buy!
5 Star Review   By TurtleLuv79 on PETCO - Oct 22, 2008    ( See more reviews from PETCO )

The only thing this package is missing is a water heater. Its great for my turtle. I use it in combination with a water conditioner that helps break down the contaminants and I dont have to change the filters more than once a month. If you leave alot of food sitting in the tank the filters will get clogged faster ... so buy more food or scoop out the excess. The only thing that was a turn off was that it doesnt have a ramp like surface to go to the top. I purchased a floating dock and propped it against the rock and now that problem is eliminated. Highly recommend this product regardless!

Not good!
1 Star Review   By rjohnstorm on PETCO - Oct 5, 2008    ( See more reviews from PETCO )

After about a week the filters inside the the waterfall structure become clogged from residue. The waterfall is not powerful enough to let the water out. Inside the waterfall then becomes a nest for lava, then you get nats and mosquitos that live inside the structure.

5 Star Review   By JinxyMae on PETCO - Sep 13, 2008    ( See more reviews from PETCO )

I Love This Product, But Personally I Wouldn't Recommend It For A Baby Turtle. Once It Get's A Bit Bigger I Think It Would Work Great. It's A Very Beautiful, Natural Looking Piece For Any Aquarium.

This product works wonderfully, looks beautiful, and saves me so so SO much time & energy... aside from some normal maintenance, this filter does all the dirty work for you.

worst filter ever
1 Star Review   By jessfromny on PETCO - Jul 30, 2008    ( See more reviews from PETCO )

this is the worst filter ever. yeah it looks nice and it provides a basking area for my red-eared turtle but unless i put in new filters in ever other day and replaced half the water in between, the water was gross and smelly. the pump would clogged very easily and i had to rinse it out every day. i recommend spending a little more and buying a better filter

Tetra reptofilter
5 Star Review   By dayra80 on PETCO - Jun 6, 2008    ( See more reviews from PETCO )

THis is a fantastic product for the price! I have 1 turtle in a 20 G tank & the H2O stays clean for over a month! Its also pretty quiet and looks beautiful & natural in my tank. The only problem is that the rock that sits on top doesn't really stay in place & the water splashes all over instead of trickling down. That was easily remedied by placing a rock (i found one in my yard!) on top. highly recommend it.

Best Turtle Filter Ever!
5 Star Review   By L0st6rL on PETCO - Feb 13, 2008    ( See more reviews from PETCO )

This is seriously a great turtle filter. It keeps my turtle tank clean longer and better than many other countless filters I have tried. Bleu and the Dude even fight to bask on top!

Amazing Product
5 Star Review   By Tonuela7485 on PETCO - Feb 8, 2008    ( See more reviews from PETCO )

When first purchasing this product I was very weary as to how well it would actually work in keeping my red earred sliders tank clean. I've been through countless filters trying to find one that will get, and keep the job done. This filter not only looks amazing, giving the tank awesome decoration, but it works better than any filter I have ever used. That's saying alot if this filter can keep a turtles tank clean!! Slinky is very happy with this product as am I. GREAT product! Would highly recommend!!!
