Questions & Answers

22 Customer Questions

I have a genius question, I would think it important to the customer to know how many filters are in the box?
Answer by ChewyJul 28, 2017
This listing is for the filter itself and 1 filter comes in the box. There will be a 1-month supply of the carbon inserts--1 or 2 inserts depending on the filter size you purchase. Replacement Tetra Aquarium Carbon Filter inserts are sold separately in 2 or 4 count boxes as listed.

Can I use this filter for my turtle?
Answer by ChewyJul 11, 2017
This filter can be used with turtles, however, the water level must be high enough for the filter to work.

Could I use this filter for my 20 gallon tank or would the intake be too long?
Answer by ChewyOct 17, 2017
The Tetra Whisper EX Power Filter is available for 20-30 gallon tanks and would absolutely work.

How would this fliter be with frogs?
Answer by ChewyDec 28, 2017
This filter is gentle enough for frogs, just make sure the water is reaching the minimum water line for the filter to pump properly.

Good job filtering, but noisy

Title says it all. I installed on a 40 gallon tank that's in our bedroom. It keeps the water crystal clear, but it is definitely not "whisper" quiet! Today, I ordered another eheim canister filter to replace it because I can't deal with the motor noise while trying to sleep. We have an eheim canister on the other tank in our bedroom and it is much quieter. I'm going to use the tetra whisper on our quarantine tank that's in another room. This filter would be great in a room where the extra noise isn't a problem.

Stopped working after a month

Just stopped working out of no where. Walked past the tank one day and realized it wasn’t making any noises. I just bought it a month ago. Not recommended for a 50 gallon tank.

Worked fine until it stopped working

Worked great until it randomly stopped working today. I unplugged it for every water change and set it up properly.

A little disappointed

I bought this filter in September, and it worked great! I’ve only had it 4 months and It just randomly stopped working. It had regular maintenance (cleaning and changing filters) not sure why it just quit. I’m a bit disappointed

Tetra Whisper %5 Gallon Filtration

My review is based on past experience. This one is replacing the one that wore out, but at this time I am unable to install it (no fish there) as workers are currently here, but Believe it will operate perfectly.
