The Whisper 10 Power Filter provides quiet and reliable filtration for clear and healthy water. The Whisper 10 provides mechanical, chemical and biological filtration for for 5 to 10 gallon, salt or freshwater aquariums. The filter performs at 90gph. It is economical and easy to use. - - The Whisper provides mechanical Filtration with a dual-sided mesh that catches debris and fish waste in it's dense fibrous network. - - Chemical Filtration is achieved with Ultra-activated carbon that absorbs odors and discoloration. - - The Aerobic Frame is deeply etched to provide a receptive surface for aerobic bacteria. Using the same Aerobic Frame and replacing only the carbon and mesh helps to maintain biological filtration. Aerobic biological filtration converts toxic ammonia and nitrites into harmless natrates. - - The filter has a convenient flow control nob that allows you to turn down the flow to promote better feeding. It also extends cartridge life by reducing uneaten food particles that can cause clogging.

Filtration Made Simple

Installation and Operation This filter is a plug and play item. All you have to do is put a filter cartrige in, plug it in the wall, and add a cup of water to the inside to get the water flowing. Can't get much easier.


Performance vs. Expectations This product pulls a lot of gunk out of the water from fish poo, extra food, ect. I have had mine for over 3 years and it still works like the day I got it.


Value for money This little filter is the best bang for your buck.


Customer Support Haven't had to deal with the company


Liked about it Cheap price, put together well, cleans aquarium water very well.


Didn't like Love everything about it.

Ahhh...this is my baby...what a workhorse!

Installation and Operation I don't think installation gets any easier than a Tetra filter. Hang it on, insert filter, plug it in, that's pretty much it. Along the same lines, that means changing your filter pads is also super easy to do.


Performance vs. Expectations This was my first filter ever when I got into the hobby of fishkeeping. It lasted for years and was still running when I sold the tank and got a larger one. I got a larger sized Tetra filter for the new tank as well since they are affordable, replacement media is affordable, and they work, and work, and work. Totally trouble free operation for me.

They come with a tip-strip to tell you when to change the filter pad. I never paid any attention to it. Sometimes I would change it sooner, and sometimes weeks after it said to. I would simply look at the media and could tell if it needed it or not. However, there is activated charcoal in the filter pads and the indicator could mean that is no longer good. Up to you, a nice feature, but not a must.

Very quiet, lives up to its Whisper name.


Value for money These are not expensive filters at all and considering the fact that they work like crazy, I would say the value is really there.


Customer Support Tetra has a great web site you can sign up for, they give you great support, not just with the products, but will answer your fish questions too. The people couldn't be nicer and they seem to care as much about the hobby as you do.


Liked about it 1. Affordable.
2. Never stopped working.
3. Very easy to clean and replace media.


Didn't like 1. Would have liked a more adjustable intake. It has several levels but none seemed just where I wanted it.

Easy to use

Installation and Operation Great to use for beginners with FO tanks. I use these to teach kids about the 3 different types of filtration.


Performance vs. Expectations Produces 90gph if clean which is enough of for a 10 gallon with 5 small fish.


Value for money Just exchange the carbon and your set no other long term costs other than 2 cents a day for power.


Liked about it Enough flow for a small tank.
Able to suck up water if it is an inch or two below the filter.


Didn't like No ground plug! I get shocked all the time!
