The Zilla Basking Platform Filter satisfies both of these important needs simultaneously. It provides efficient filtration to keep water crystal clear, and a much-needed basking surface to promote optimal turtle health.
Thanks to its hidden internals and rock-like appearance, the Basking Platform Filter blends seamlessly into any naturalistic enclosure. It features a ramped and textured design for easy climbing, and a removable lid for quick access to the enclosed pump and media.
The Basking Platform Filter is powered by a whisper-quiet 98 gph adjustable water pump. It draws in water through a stealthy intake grid, and passes it through a dense-floss, carbon-packed filter cartridge. Filtered water is then returned to the habitat via a gentle waterfall.
In addition to filter floss and activated carbon, the Basking Platform Filter also comes equipped with a bio-holster. This dual-purpose plastic grid holds the filter cartridge securely in place while providing an ideal cultivation site for beneficial bacteria.
The Small Zilla Basking Platform Filter is suitable for use in terrariums up to 20 gallons in size. It is compatible with Zilla Medium size replacement filter cartridges (1 included).
