Rated 2 out of 5 by CFpets seems to leak; electrical adapter melted
I agree with the other reviewer, it looks nice and the pet seems to like it; however, I have thought all along that it leaked although my daughter didn't agree with me - it ran out of water multiple times a day and the substrate mat in that half of the tank looks wet. What's worse, it quit working after we had it about a month, and when she pulled it out to look at it, the block that connects the power cord to the back of the fountain was melted and misshapen - which is rather scary. I lost the receipt! but I'm going to try taking it back to the store anyway.

by baaiileeyy Has so much potential, but...
I originally bought this to try to encourage my beard to drink water. I travel quite a bit and my husband does not necessarily take great care of my beardie... He was regularly forgetting to mist him and the poor thing was really dehydrated when I got back from my most recent trip. So I went and found this.
First impression was I LOVED it! It was cool looking and really seemed to bring his tank together. Even the sound of the water was really relaxing. Within a few days (after he'd gotten used to it a little better) I even noticed my beardie drinking from it, which I was skeptical would even happen. So I was thrilled with this purchase!
Here's where the "but" comes in. It leaks. Horribly.
I didn't notice it until about a week after I bought it, when I went to clean his tank out. But sure enough, the back corner of his tank was soaked from it leaking out of the back somewhere! I ended up pulling everything out and cleaning it all thoroughly, and decided to give the fountain another shot. I figured maybe I had just overfilled it when I topped it off that morning (the pump inside does make an unpleasant noise when the level gets low) and that it would work fine if I just kept an eye on the water level.
Well, I just checked on it this morning and now his ENTIRE left side of his tank is soaked... And he has a 50 gallon, so that's quite a bit of leakage...
Not sure what I want to do with this fountain right now... If I can get it to stop leaking I would love to keep it, but I can't keep waking up to find my poor beardie's tank all wet either.
