This is great to make a Terrarium easily. I have it in a 55 gallon for my fire-belly toads. I absolutely love this product and my toads love it to. In order to keep the water clean I had to buy another filter but that's probably because its a 55 gal. Also, my little toads would climb into the waterfall system. Had to stick some rocks to block where they could get in. Other than that it is a great product and I would absolutly recommend this product.
Pros: stylish, easy to clean, sturdy
Cons: price

I bought this 8 months ago with the idea of building an environment for both fish and reptiles. I decided to start slow so I put it in a 40 gal tank, did some creative tweeks which I will discuss in a minute, and filled the tank half full (up to the water line marked on the viquarium). I put fish in it and they have been doing great. I had the water tested about every 2 months and the water has been perfect. I was afraid that over time the pump might start slowing down resulting in my waterfall slowing down to a trickle but it works just the same as when I first turned it on. Today I decided to step it up and put a toad in it. I look forward to seeing how he likes it.
The only reason I did not give this product 5 stars is because although it says it wil work with up to a 40 gallon tank, it requires some work. In my case the viqurium did not fit the entire width of the tank so I had to install a piece of plexi glass to make up the difference. This was OK with me since I wanted to raise the level of the water any way so I also extended the plexi glass underneath the device (basically I cut out an L-shaped piece of plexi glass measured to fit my tank). This lifted the viquarium to a heighth that allowed me to maximize the total height of the tank. Be creative, my wife glued rocks on the plexi glass so it blended in well with the design of the viquarium. We even went an extra step and built a fish cave by punching a hole into the plexi glass and fitting in a piece of 4" PVC pipe. I won't bore you any further with more details but use your imagination. It is pretty cool!!!
Pros: stylish, easy to clean, sturdy
Cons: price

I have had this product for over a year now and I love it! Although I do wonder when my turtles get larger and need higher water how I am going to do that, because with this the water only can go so high. But yes I love this! The waterfall is beautiful! The filter works great ( I change my water every week)! Really like it!
Pros: stylish, sturdy
Cons: hard to clean

BROKEN!

I just opened the box to find that the filter box is smashed in on one end. The box had never been opened and there were several pieces at the bottom indicating that it was the manufacturers fault. I immediately called Tetrafauna and asked for a replacement. They said that I should send it back to Petsmart because it was not their fault. They refused to send me a new filter box and would not reimburse me for shipping. So now I have paid $80 for a broken item and I have to pay more money to ship it back so that I can get a replacement that works!! They don't care about their products or customers!!This item is plastic and definately not worth the price or aggravation. I can probably create something better for my fire bellied toads by myself and alot cheaper! There is no excuse for poor customer service from such a huge company. I intend to avoid Tetrafauna products in the future.
