Rated 2 out of 5 by nudgey the 10i stinks, the 40i is better, bio bags do not fit, use tetra filter bags only
tetra needs to redesign the filter to allow the cartridges to seed properly otherwise you get blow by

It's OK but I won't get a filter from y'all again unless I can control the current. I literally just bought this filter and I can't stand it. My betta refuses to swim when it is turned on because the current is too strong. It seems the only way to get a filter that I can control the current is to buy a whole new tank setup.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NeonBettaTetra Its an okay filter for a back-up
I had originally gone into the store to purchase a different filter, but they were out. So I bought the Whisper 3i thinking it could run my 5.5gal until my other filter came in the mail then I would move the 3i to my 2.5gal tank. I already have issues with this filter and I've only been running it for a few hours.
1. The clip needs to go and the suction cups need to come back. The clip is not big enough to fit over the sides of either of my tanks because of the lip for my hoods.
2. There is almost too much aeration. I have tried it with the filter facing both ways and yet air is still bubbling up loudly before flowing through the filter.
3. The air pump. Yes I know air pumps are suppose to hum...well this one is humming loud enough for me to here it when I walk in my front door which is on the other side of my apartment and down a flight of steps. So this filter will be unplugged at night if my music doesn't drown it out.
