Description

The Tetrafauna Decorative ReptoFilter for Frogs, Newts & Turtles provides effective filtration for your tank and adds visual appeal at the same time. The rock-like structure hides a powerful filter that works in any aquarium up to 55 gallons. This three-stage Whisper filtration system helps keep the water crystal clear using medium ReptoFilter cartridges. Organic debris is trapped in the mesh covering of the cartridge, while the activated carbon absorbs odors and discoloration. As the filtered water flows over the rocks and back into the tank, it creates a soothing waterfall. Frogs, newts and turtles will all enjoy climbing to the top, which serves as a high basking area and also prevents animals from entering the filtration area.

Key Benefits
  • As the filtered water flows over the rocks and back into the tank, it creates a soothing waterfall.
  • Keeps water clear with three-stage filtration (chemical, mechanical & biological).
  • Removes odor, keeping your terrarium a clean, odor-free environment.
  • The rock-like structure hides a powerful filter that works in any aquarium up to 55 gallons.
  • Frogs, newts and turtles will all enjoy climbing to the top, which serves as a high basking area and also prevents animals from entering the filtration area.
What's Included

Decorative ReptoFilter, (2) ReptoFilter medium cartridges, lid, O-ring, outflow tube with elbow fitting, 80 GPH pump.

Precautions

HAZARDS TO HUMANS AND ANIMALS: Special care should be taken to avoid possible electric shock, since water is employed in the use of aquarium equipment. If the ReptoFilter appliance shows any sign of abnormal water leakage, immediately unplug it from the power source. Carefully examine the appliance after installation. Unplug the appliance if there is water on parts not intended to get wet. Do not operate any appliance if it has a damaged cord or plug, or if it is malfunctioning, or if it has been dropped or damaged in any manner. Always unplug the appliance from an outlet when it is not in use. Also, unplug it before cleaning, and prior to disconnecting or attaching parts. Never yank the cord to pull the plug from the outlet. Grasp the plug and pull to disconnect. Do not use an appliance for anything other than its intended use. Do not use attachments that are not recommended or sold by the manufacturer; they may cause an unsafe condition. Do not install or store the appliance where it will be exposed to the weather or to temperatures below freezing. If an extension cord is necessary, use a cord with a rating that matches or exceeds the rating of the appliance. A cord rated for fewer amperes or watts than the appliance rating may overheat. Arrange the cord so that it will not trip anybody, and that it will not be pulled in any way. This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). As a safety feature, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. To avoid injury, do not touch moving parts. Supervise children closely when they are near or using the appliance.

Instructions
  1. Press outflow tube into pump discharge opening. Lubricate tube and adapters with water to ease tube assembly to pump.
  2. Slide O-ring over Elbow Fitting, keeping it approximately 1/4 inches from the end of the Elbow Fitting opening.
  3. Place assembled pump on the bottom of the Decorative ReptoFilter. Slide the overflow tube with O-ring into groove at top of the filter front. Slide down until O-ring sits at bottom of groove to form a watertight seal. Route pump cord through small notch at rear of filter top.
  4. Rinse cartridge filters under cold tap water to remove any carbon dust.
  5. Insert filter cartridges into slots on either side of pump and slide all the way down until seated on bottom.
  6. Place lid on filter.
  7. Place filter unit in corner of tank and fill until water level is between minimum and maximum line (levels are indicated on side of filter). Use a dechlorinator every time water is added to the tank. The ReptoFilters has intake holes close to the base of the unit. In order to prevent small animals from being sucked into the holes, it is recommended to add gravel to cover the holes.
  8. Plug in filter and create a drip loop.

  • Looks cool and works well

    By on

    I bought this for my 2 pet turtles tank. The set up was very easy and the video helped as well. It looks very nice and the waterfall effect adds a nice touch to the tank. My only problem with the product is that it is designed for a 55 gallon tank with 2 filters in it and my tank is nowhere near that size however the filter got very dirty after just a few days leaving a mucky brown color in my tank. Other then that the product works properly and it does give a nice decor to the tank. *I will be replacing the filters sometime soon and see if this happens again

  • Good but a couple things

    By on

    I overall love this filter. Mainly because it comes with a water feature, but it also creates humidity for my firebelly toads. I have real plants in my terrarium and they thrive on humidity. It is perfect for that! When I put it together, it would sometimes make a weird noise. Almost like it was struggling to keep filtering. But I moved the O-ring up and locked the tube in and it seemed to work better and I havent heard the noise ever since. I highly reccomend this product for turtles, toads, and frogs.

  • My turtle loves it !

    By on

    I have a one year old turtle in a 10 gallon tank, it is perfect for this application. This filter works well with a lower water level, it looks good and seems quite durable, I have only had it for about a month.

  • Super cute!

    By on

    I love this filter! It has a soft pretty waterfall sound and my turtle loves climbing to the top. Only issue was the initial setup and the black rubber ring that secures the output flow. Can it be made preassembled? It was ridiculous trying to put that on correctly.

  • Keep my turtle tank clean and nice sound

    By on

    This filter looks fantastic in my 40 gallon aquarium. Does a good job at keeping the water clean. And it also doubles as a basking area for my 4-inch Turtle he loves climbing on this with the help of a few rocks on the side of it. $20 cheaper than all pet stores and free shipping came in two days. That's why I buy everything from chewy.com excellent

  • Love This Filter!

    By on

    This is the third one I purchased in a 10 year period! Is one of the best filters you can get for a Turtle. I basically does keep the water cleaner than most filters that are on the market, I have been through several of them. I replace every 3.5 years only to just put a new one in the tank so it looks nice! Requires maintenance every 1 week to clean out the actual filter. Great Item!!!

  • Bigger than it looks

    By on

    If you have a 13 gallon tank, it'll reduce the space for your turtle unless is still a baby or a little one but it serves its purpose. Works well and keeps tank squeaky cleaned. My turtle at first didn't want nothing to do with it and was just floating on the other corner of the tank but after a week started climbing and even dives once in a while from atop. Didn't let me post the pics
