The Tetrafauna ReptoFilter for Frogs, Newts & Turtles provides crystal clear filtration for aquatic terrariums. It uses patented Whisper technology for silent operation as it moves the water through three stages of filtration. The removable filter cartridges catch organic debris and remove odors and discoloration from your tank. This filter works in as little as three inches of water, so it’s the ideal choice for the shallow pools found in turtle, newt and frog habitats. It’s also great for creating waterfalls. Simply attach the suction cups to a terrarium wall and cover the filter with decorative rocks or plants. The green color makes it easy to conceal, and the protective lid keeps reptiles out. The medium 90 GPH filter is effective in terrariums up to 20 gallons, and the large 125 GPH works for tanks up to 55 gallons.

Install the ReptoFilter on the back wall of your terrarium. Unlike conventional filters, its small size makes it easy to hide with a plant or other decorative object. From the front, it's practically invisible. To create a waterfall, camouflage the ReptoFilter with rocks.
Insert suction cups. When pressed firmly and twisted, the suction cups will fit snugly into the holes in the back of the ReptoFilter. If they don't go in easily, a small screwdriver can be used to gently guide the suction cups into the holes.
Insert the filter cartridge and foam grid. (Note: The front of the foam grid is marked "front" and should face the front of the filter.)
Insert ReptoFilter inside the aquarium and press the suction cups against the aquarium glass. Drape wire over the aquarium wall.
The lip of the ReptoFilter should be above water level, and the bottom of the filter should be submerged in at least two inches of water. When positioning plants and other items, take care to leave at least 1/2 inch clearance around the filter's intake area.
Attach ReptoFilter lid.
3.5 x 2.5 x 7.5 inches
4.5 x 2.75 x 10 inches
Is this submersible?
It can be placed lower in the tank with suction cups, but you generally do not want to submerge it.
I had this thing in my Paludarium. It was a complete and utter failure! The back part with the suction cups has little holes for the suction cups that go all the way through the body of the filter. This thing starting leaking and quietly leaked out 2 gallons of water over the course of 24 hours. NOPE. Chewy was great as usual and I returned the item. But I would not recommend this filter.
Very quiet and easy to install

The water filter works good for my 40 gallon turtle tank. It is very quiet and it was easy to install. The only complaint is the lid of the filter doesn't stay on so it usually ends up in the tank floating around with my turtle! So my advice would be to make it fit better and stay on! Other than that no known issues thanks.
Such A Great Product

This is the second time I've purchased this filter but the first time I've purchased at Chewy. So convenient and affordable. I love it. It does the job for my little turtles tank.

This filter was very cheap it shipped very fast and I've had it for little over a month now and it works great worth the by and I highly recommend it if you have a small turtle tank.

Good Price, But Not The Best

If you are willing to be careful about water changes than this will work. You can buy better quality filters but if you're on a budget this is your best option.

This is the first time I ever used this filter ,my turtle Miki loves this filter it gives her cage a natural effect and it's made her more comfortable in her tank. Plus this filter has kept my waters Crystal clear so far and it sounds relaxing. If anyone has any turtle care information please feel free to tell me because I'm a first time turtle mom .
Upset with the suction
on Feb 13, 2018
I've had this filter for a month, and when I tried cleaning the filter today the suction cups came out and they will not go back in. I can't properly have the filter in the tank because it is supposed to be a half an inch from the bottom of the tank but now I have to rest it on the bottom. Also when I first put the filter in a month ago, It wouldn't stay where I originally placed it. It slowly dropped down all on its on. Words cannot describe how frustrated I am with the most simplest part of this product that shouldn't even be giving me a problem. However, the filtration itself is okay.
