The Exo Terra Turtle Cliff is a waterfall, basking area and filter in one. Its state-of-the-art filtering system instantly transforms an aquatic terrarium setup into the ideal habitat while providing turtles and other semi-aquatic terrarium animals with the ideal basking or terrestrial area. The hidden filter provides clear, healthy water while the waterfall features creates the necessary water circulation and aeration, and its natural rock texture and colour allows it to integrate easily into any aquatic terrarium setup.

The Exo Terra Turtle Cliff is equiped with a Repti Clean Terrarium Filter, an optimal water filtration system with large filter volume and effective flow control. The 3-stage filtration system allows alternate replacement for continuous biological filter activity, guaranteeing optimal mechanical, chemical and biological filtration. Addition filter material can be added to the chambers for increased filter performance. Aquatic heaters can also be concealed within the Exo Terra Turtle Cliff. The flat back and side can be easily positioned in the back corners of the Exo Terra Turtle Terrarium.

  • 8.3” x 7” x 3.7”
  • 110 volts
  •  If the motor shows any sign of abnormal water leakage, immediately unplug it from the power source.
  •  Do not operate any appliance if it has a damaged cord or plug, or if it is malfunctioning or if it is dropped or damaged in any manner. The power cord of this appliance cannot be replaced; if the cord is damaged, the appliance should be discarded. Never cut the cord
  •  To avoid the possibility of the appliance plug or electrical socket getting wet, position the unit to one side of a wall mounted socket to prevent water from dripping onto the socket or plug. A “drip-loop” should be arranged. The “drip-loop” is that part of the cord below the level of the socket or the connector if an extension cord is used, to prevent water from traveling along the cord and coming into contact with the socket. If the plug or socket does get wet, DO NOT unplug the cord. Disconnect the fuse or circuit breaker that supplies power to the appliance. Then unplug and examine for the presence of water in the socket.
  • Always unplug an appliance from a socket when not in use, before putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning. Never yank cord to pull the plug from the socket. Grasp the plug and pull to disconnect.
  • Do not use an appliance for other than its intended use (i.e. do not use in swimming pools, garden ponds, bathrooms or any situations where people are immersed). The use of attachments not recommended or sold by the manufacturer of the appliance may cause an unsafe condition.
  •  Do not install or store the appliance where it will be exposed to the weather or to temperatures below freezing.
  • WARNING - For North American market only. This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). As a safety feature, this plug will fit in a polarized socket only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the socket, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Never use with an extension cord unless plug can be fully inserted. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.
  •  If an extension cord is necessary, a cord with proper rating should be used. A cord rated for less amperes or watts than the appliance rating may overheat. Care should be taken to arrange the cord so that it will not be tripped or pulled.
  • The filter must be immersed in water. The filter must not run dry


Installation: Insert filter into cavity in bottom half of Turtle Cliff. Press down firmly on the filter to ensure the suction cups are fully securing it place. If additional filtration is required, extra filter material can be placed in the cavity 2. Position top half of Turtle Cliff onto bottom half. Ensure that filter’s water outlet spout/tube is aligned with outlet hole in Turtle Cliff. 3. Arrange Turtle Cliff in desired location in terrarium. Turtle Cliff should be placed on a flat, level surface. Ensure that the water suction holes on the base of the Turtle Cliff are not blocked or obstructed. 4. Connect the power cord to the electrical outlet. If the unit does not start immediately, verify that the water level is sufficient to immerse the filter’s water outlet spout/tube during operation.

Cleaning the impeller: 1. Unplug the Turtle Cliff and remove it from the installation 2. Remove filter from the Turtle Cliff 3. Separate the filter case from the motor housing 4. Remove impeller cover 5. Grasp the blades of the impeller fan to pull out the impeller 6. Thoroughly clean the impeller and the impeller well to remove slime, dirt or debris. 7. Place the impeller back into the impeller well. Replace the impeller cover, then re-attach the filter case to the motor housing.


Filter Media: The Exo Terra Repti Clear F250 and F350 Terrarium Filter provides 3-stage filtration. The large foam captures and removes large particulate matter and debris and enhances biological filtration, the smaller foam captures smaller, finer particulate matter; and the carbon cartridge helps improve water clarity, color and smell. The foam pads will gradually fill with trapped debris and require rinsing. Re-using the foam can help protect the bacterial colonies and provide continual biological filtration. Foam pads should be rinsed at least once a month, more often if necessary. It is not recommended to rinse the foam directly in tap or well water, as the water contains chemicals that make it unsafe to amphibians. As a precaution, the foam should always be rinsed in de-chlorinated water. To do this, fill a container with water and then treat the water with a water conditioner such as Exo Terra Aquatize to neutralize the chemicals. Once the water has been de-chlorinated, you can then rinse the foam. (note: this procedure is also recommended when replacing with new foam). Filter media (foam pads, carbon cartridge) should be replaced every 6-8 weeks to ensure proper functioning of the filter, more often if necessary. Never rinse or replace all filter media at the same time, alternate rinsing/ replacement of filter media. Replacement Filter Foam and Carbon cartridges can be purchased from your local Exo Terra dealer or pet retailer.



 No Flow: • Check if the power supply is on. Check the circuit breaker or try another outlet to ensure the filter is getting electrical power. Note: always disconnect the filter from electrical supply before handling. • If power supply is working but filter is not, then it may be clogged by debris. Disconnect the filter, check water output spout/tube to ensure it is not clogged, then follow the maintenance procedures to clean the impeller.

Low Flow: • Check the filter’s water output spout/tube to ensure it is not clogged by debris. Then follow the maintenance procedures to clean impeller
