    I absolutely love this & so do my turtles...I would recommend this for anyone with a 20 gallon tank or larger (mine is 40 gallon breeder)...The nice flowing stream for Ur critters, along with the cascading waterfall, adds a natural setting to their habitat that makes it feel as close to nature as U can I absolutely love this & so do my turtles...I would recommend this for anyone with a 20 gallon tank or larger (mine is 40 gallon breeder)...The nice flowing stream for Ur critters, along with the cascading waterfall, adds a natural setting to their habitat that makes it feel as close to nature as U can get!

    Didn’t last long

    By Turtle on Jan 10, 2021

    I bought this for my red rated slider turtle in sept 2020. Since 11/2020 is has not made a stream from the pump with any power. It has gone stagnant and caused mosquitoes. Maybe mine is defective, it worked beautifully for about 60-90 days

    Cute but not worth it

    By on

    I love the look but with it was taller to allow a higher water line. Also the filtration doesn't work very well if at all. Unfortunately its not worth the price in my opinion :/

    This is our second time purchasing this viquarium. Our aquatic turtle loves it so much, and as long as Sheldon is happy, I’m happy.

    very impressed

    By on

    i saw so many videos on it and it looks much better in person. however i don't think it's strong engouh for a 55 gallon tank it barely flows in my 29 gallon tank but either way its a great products so much room for customization not the product it's self but everything from the gravle to plants and so on. i recommend it to anyone. thank u chewy for the fast shipping it was suppose to arrive in 3 days but it made it in one day and a few hours.

    Not worth the money

    By on

    I do not recommend this product for use with turtles... The pump works fine, but the filtration is worthless.... It does not filter the water at all.. No matter how you set it up, it doesnt do what its supped to do...

    Pump and hoes

    By on

    this item brought a pump that did not attach well on the hoes, in the instruction the hoes is shown to have some type of rubber tip that helps connect to the pump. Also, the hoes looks like some lenth of it was cut off. I had to jam the hoes into the pump hole and tape it up so not enough water is coming out of the filter due to the constriction of the hoes in the pump.

    Nice addition

    By on

    My baby wood turtle loves the waterfall, riverbed. I like the addition of this naturalistic pump, filter, land, waterfall. The problem that I faced is that it does not fit a 40gal turtle tank. I had to cut a piece of slate to make it wide enough. It works great and looks good too. It did take about 11 days to receive it because of covid19 delays.

    Looks great but could use some modifications.

    By on

    Received it and immediately set it up in a 29G aquarium. It is nice and looks great but I wish there were some modifications. 1: I wish there were additional sizes to accommodate wider aquariums. Basically unless your aquarium is 13" wide, it's not going to work, but that is clearly stated on the box. 2: Wis they sold something that you could put under it to raise it up a little more. As it is your only going to get about 5 1/2 inches of water which pretty much ends any chance of setting your aquarium up with live plants in it. Not sure how yet, but going to try to find a way to get it raised up so I can have deeper water for my newts. Other than that, like I said, it looks great.
