Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Engineering Very unhappy with this filter. The tube is put together with a rubber ring that disintegrates. So then the entire filter is worthless unless you buy the replacement ring for a hefty shipping fee. Customer Service said this isn’t under warranty. The unit isn’t 3 years old but this piece isn’t covered? Why in heavens name would they switch to a 1/4 inch piece of material to put two parts together? I’ve had this filter before and others like it. All of the tube pieces fit into each other. This can only be explained by an engineering mistake and this is how they “fixed” it. Well, Maybe for them, but not for us. Thanks Tetra, NOT! Bought a competitors filter so my bio doesn’t fail. And . . . I don’t have to deal with the next problem that surfaces.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke Apart! I purchased this filter about one year ago and I'm not a fan. The filters don't readily stay in place and the bottom part of the filter has dislodged!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not readily available I bought the Whisper EX 70 filter for my tank back in May 2018. I used to always use marineland but I wanted something quieter. We have owned fish tanks for nearly 20 years so we master how to take the filters apart and meticulously clean them as well as ensuring the water levels are high enough to properly submerge the filtration system. I am so disappointed because after only six months the filter seized and will not work no matter what we do. I planned to return the item at Petco but they did not have another filter... as a matter of fact no place has this filter within a 100 mile radius of me. Petco kept my receipt (I have never needed to use the warranty before so I didn’t know I needed the receipt) so now I have nothing and had to drop another $65 on another filter system because I couldn’t wait for shipping. 6 months?! Not worth the $ or the waiting to get another while watching my fish die off one by one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible.... loud and rattles like crazy I bought this filter last weekend. My previous filter went out and wanted to go with a trusted name. It rattles like a old broken down car. Can hear it from another room and have to turn the tv up to drown it out. Tried all the Vaseline tips to no avail. Guess I’m out the 30.00 I spent on this “whisper” filter.it is far from the quite that the label touts. I will never purchase another Tetra product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very loud!! 6 months old. Nothing whisper quite about it. The impeller is bent. Doesn’t clean my tank as well either.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Seized motor I bought this EX 70 almost a year ago. If the water level drops a couple of inches, it sucks air and stops. I was moving, and my I was gone for 3 days. The water evaporated due to 95° + heat. The impeller is seized and pretty much welded to the motor. Horrible design. Instead of buying another, I used the reservoir and bought a pond pump. Installing a submersible pump a non-airtight housing , near the water line, is planned failure for profit.
