Tetra Whisper 2 -10 Gallon Depth Power Filter for Aquariums
Sale : $11.12Sold & shipped by Walmart
For convenience and quiet, choose a Tetra Whisper 10i Filter. These Tetra Whisper Aquarium Filter mount on the inside of the aquarium, rather than hanging from the outside, making it possible to place the tank flush against a wall. These 2-10i Tetra Whisper Power Filter are unusually quiet, since the motor is under the water. Offering the same quality and performance as an external filter, the Tetra Whisper 10i Filter will function in as little as two inches of water, allowing it to be used for turtle tanks or for creating a waterfall inside the tank. Designed for aquariums up to 10-gallons, the Tetra Whisper Aquarium Filter features adjust easily to high or low water levels with mounting suction cups and/or brackets. Each Tetra Whisper 10i Filter comes with one pre-assembled whisper filter cartridge.

Works fine!

I have 3 of these pumps in our 3gal. Betta tanks. In the kids rooms and on my desk. They do the job, but needed some 'adjusting'. The current was too disturbing for our Bettas. I cut the air tube in two spots and added a back flow valve and a regulating valve (a splitter so you can hook up an air stone or something like that.) I opened the second outlet a bit to let some air from the pump just blow out, and it made the current a lot more suitable for our Bettas! The filters have been running for about 3 years now, and only one broke. The rubber membrane inside the air pump ripped. The vibration can be a bit noisy, so I attached the air pump to a stuffed animal with rubber bands :o) Works fine, looks cute! The water stays clean for a long time and replacing the filter pads takes only seconds. I will switch to an external nano filter but not because of the filters performance! Our tanks are six sided and they look just too bulky in there! Oh, the lid keeps falling off, but is not really needed anyways!


I like it

I got this for my fiddler crab tank and its in about one and a half gallons of water that is less than 3 inches deep. Its really quiet and its just what I needed.


Great for my turtle tank

We have a baby mud turtle in a ten gallon tank, full to a depth of approximately 2 inches. I set-up the tank about a month ago using this filter, and so far it is working really well. I have not had to change the water yet - this filter has kept the water nice and clear (and stink-free). That is pretty impressive for a turtle tank since turtles produce a lot of waste. Our turtle is still very little, so I am sure as he grows this filter will be put to the test, but so far, so good. A couple of times the filter stopped pumping water -I thought it was broken- but as soon as I added more water to the tank, the filter started right back up again. Now I just make sure that there is enough water in the tank to cover the intake slots near the bottom of the filter. In my set-up, this filter makes quite a bit of noise because of how far the water has to fall; it sounds like a babbling brook in my living room. I don't really mind the noise though, it can be kind of soothing.


The Whisper 5-15 Filter

This filter came in a 5 gallon aquarium kit i bought at walmart. it was a "glow light" kit, so it has blue lights and white. anyway, back to the filter...it's very quiet. i can't even hear it running when i'm right next to it. one negative is that there is no way to adjust the power, and IF you have a male betta, this filter may be too strong in a 5 gallon tank. it doesn't create a lot of surface agitation, but the "waterfall" it makes IS a strong enough current to really knock around my betta when he swam under it. it's better in a 10 gallon tank, OR with fish that like some current, like neon's or something similar. aside from there being no way to adjust the flow, the only other issue is with the recommendation that you replace the cartridge once a month.....that cartridge is where all your beneficial bacteria live. throwing it out means having to cycle your tank again. INSTEAD...just take it out and swish it around in old tank water (when u do water changes just take that moment to take out cartridge and swish it around in that old fish water, then put it back in the filter. don't change it until it's literally falling apart. and as long as there is good flow coming out of the filter u know it's working and filtering properly


Amazing, Affordable, Affective!

My goldfish lives in a 5gal aquarium, 5 gallons too small for him. I used to do water changes twice a day, but even then the water started turning green. So I got this filter and installed it. It was SO easy! I just took out the filter case, put the filter media in, put it in my tank, plugged it in and BAM! I thought it wasn't working, it was so quiet! The water cleared up in about 10 seconds. My goldfish is much more active, too! I have my aquarium in my room, and my filter is so quiet I sleep easily. I don't hear anything but a soft hum, quieter than my laptop fan (which is really quiet) If you were thinking about buying this filter, DO IT! It's so worth it!
