One of the best filters available today is undoubtedly the Tetra Whisper EX Power Filter. Capable of managing and cleaning up to 70 gallons of water, this filter is perfect for both beginners and experienced hobbyists. The Tetra Whisper EX Power Filter is ready to use straight from the box, so there is no timely and fiddly set up, so it is perfect for new tanks, as well as those which have been running for some time. Simply prime the filter, and it is ready to go.
The Tetra Whisper EX Power Filter comes with two of the large, patented carbon filters that it uses to clean the water in the tank. The filter also comes with two bacteria growth plates so that you can check the health of the water within the tank, keeping both your fish and plants healthy. Although the Tetra Whisper EX Power Filter does not provide chemical and biological cleaning, Tetra offers many different products that can help you to manually monitor and clean the water in your tank.
This small and compact filter makes it discreet and easy to disguise with plants and props, so there is no large, unattractive box at the back of the fish tank. The Tetra Whisper EX Power Filter has also provided innovative time strips to tell you when it’s time to change the cartridges. These time strips mean that you don’t have to remember exactly when you need to change the cartridges, simply remove and replace them when the time strip turns red, and then timing will start again from the time of replacement. Even replacing the Tetra bio bag filter cartridges has been made simple. Tetra has provided a door on the top of the Tetra Whisper EX Power Filter, so there is no need for Tetra replacement filters when replacing the cartridges. The cartridges simply lift out and are easily replaced minimising drips and mess.
The Tetra Whisper EX Power Filter boasts very quiet operation, along with its convenient and easy upkeep, by submerging the motor underneath the waterline; so no matter what room your tank is in, you will barely know it’s there. Tetra also provides a number of different sizes of the Tetra Whisper EX Power Filter, so no matter what the capacity and water level of your tank, there will be a Tetra Whisper EX Power Filter to fit your tank’s needs perfectly.
Tetra is known for their aquarium products and has a great reputation in the area. The Tetra Whisper EX Power Filter is no exception. The patented carbon filters and intuitive design make this filter one of the easiest to use, as one of the highest performers. The only weakness of the Tetra Whisper EX Power Filter is that sand and grit can easily be sucked into the filter, making it noisy and can potentially cause malfunctions. It is important to regularly have a deep clean of the filter and the tank, rather than simply relying on the filter for the entire tanks to avoid this problem.
