Viquarium Terrarium and Aquarium in One

One-of-a-kind innovative "land and water" environment  combining decoration and filtration!Quick, easy, and flexible set-up fits in most 20 to 55 gallon aquariumsAqua-Terrarium for aquatic reptiles, amphibians and fishDouble barreled, 3-stage Whisper filtration keeps water crystal clearRiverbed extension allows for variable size land and water sectionsUses easily replaceable cartridges

Includes:

  • Waterfall
  • Filtration Unit with Built In Critter Access
  • Ramps
  • Riverbed
  • Riverbed Extension
  • Two Rubber Spacers
  • Powerful 80 GPH UL
  • Listed submersible pump
  • Two ReptoFilter Cartridges

How the Viquarium Filtration Works:

1. Water is drawn into the intake holes in the filter box

2. Water is mechanically filtered as it passes through the cartridges

3. Water is biologically filtered as it travels through the gravel. The gravel offers a high surface area for beneficial bacteria to colonize

4. As the water enters the inlet box, it is pumped up to the waterfall area

5. Filtered water comes out of the waterfall, flows down the cascade and into the riverbed

6. Filtered water returns to the water area

Tetra® Viquarium Terrarium & Aquarium Filter

Tetra® Viquarium Terrarium & Aquarium Filter is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use in Turtle Aquarium How to 'Pump it Up' for better filtration and the size you need to cut the acrylic - 12 years experience I have owned turtle aquariums for over 12 years. I LOVE the vivarium and currently run it in a 75g W and 2, 40g W aquariums. Here are a few pointers that some of the users on here need to realize: for each 1" of turtle shell, you need to have 10g minimum of filtration, and where this is a beautiful filter to use in your aquarium it is simply not big enough on it's own to filter more than 1 turtle in a 20 gallon, no matter how much you try to keep it clean, it just won't cut it, and it is of no fault of the company, that is exactly what it is meant to do! HOWEVER, if you love the look of this as much as I do, here is my recommendation and a hack to use this gorgeous filter AND keep a clean tank! First: Set up your vivarium filter. (In wide tanks, you will need acrylic inserts which you can buy for very cheap online, ($4 each! cut to your customize size. (In a 40w and 75W you need cut acrylic that is 3/8" x, 6 1/4" x 3 1/4") Second: Put a canister filter to the appropriate size required for your turtles, again 1" shell = 10g to 20g filtration, for my 40W (also called a breeder tank), I use a 120g canister filter, and have perfect water. 75W I use a 200g. If you choose NOT to drill holes with bulkheads (I use that in 1 tank WITH my Vivarium filter), than you can hack it by drilling a hole down through the lid on the top of the vivarium, insert the INTAKE hose through this hole and then attach a ring on both sides, so it can not slip out, push the intake hose all the way to the bottom of the back section of the vivarium. DO NOT leave it open so the hose can sit in there, as turtles like to climb they will likely fall in and drown! A regular drill bit will drill through it just fine. Third: Take the OUTPUT hose from your canister filter and attach it to the top opposite side of the tank with the spray bar facing the glass, this will create a cascade waterfall on the opposite side of the tank which will push water towards your vivarium filter and the intake hose. Essentially what you just did was increase the filter capabilities of your vivarium while keeping the beautiful set up. DO NOT SET THE OUTPUT HOSE UP TO PUSH WATER DOWN THE WATERFALL, if you do this, though it is logical, you will create a waterfall that WILL and can drown your turtles as well as keeping them from climbing up your waterfall, further, it will actually keep your tank from being cleaned by creating only a circular filtration happening inside the back of your vivarium filter. So, don't give up on your Vivarium because you are using it for something bigger than it is good for, just pump it up with a canister filter, keep the beauty, the fun for your turtles, and the clean water! I will always use these gorgeous filters, and I hope this helps you to keep yours! (attached is a photo of my 75W, it needs cleaned, but I wanted to show you how to hack it, this specific tank has the hole drilled through the tank and in to the lower part of the Vivariums back tower. (Please do not attempt to do that specific hack at home). The 40g breeders are currently being cleaned so I could not take a photo of that for you, those have the hose going through the top of the lid.)
