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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loud and Obnoxious! I just returned this product and replaced it with a Quiet Flow E Internal Power Filter. I am so much happier now. I purchased the Tetra Whisper because we need something quiet, however, it sounded like a Mack truck was parked in our living room with that filter in our fish tank. We tried all the helpful hints that the company gave us and nothing worked. It was a terrible product. Loud and obnoxious! The store took back the product and refunded our money - but it was such a hassle having to go through all the motions of it. I am happy with this new product and will never purchase a Tetra filter again.

I can not say enough about how happy I am with your product. Thank you for all the time and money the Whisper has saved me already.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Impeller keeps going out and needs to be replaced I have no sand or air bubbles and the filter is clean. The impeller goes out like every couple of months and is very annoying. As soon as I put a new impeller it works perfect until that impeller goes out. Looking at going with a different brand as I can’t keep buying impellers.
