  • It's Soooo Quiet, It Won't Wake the Fish

    May 20, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small, Powerful Air Pump Keeps the Water well Aerated and The Water Moving.
    Cons: None

    Summary: I have had an aquarium setup in my home for over 15 years and recently my old air pump decided it wasn't going to work any longer. I went to the fish supply house and decided on a Tetra Whisper Air Pump to take care of my needs. What I ... read more

    Pros: It's a pretty small piece of machinery and it works really well. Pretty quiet.
    Cons: It can be a little on the expensive side.

    Summary: I have a betta fish that I kept in a 2.5 gallon tank so I needed a filter for it. The first filter I got worked fine for about six months before the air pump that came with it slowly began to die, by eight months in I needed a new air pump. At ... read more

    Pros: Low price. Pumps well into a 20 in deep tank
    Cons: Very loud

    Summary: Note: this review is for the Whisper 20 pump.  I have previously posted in under Whisper 20, but now realize that there are many, many Whisper pump threads.  I am reposting it and updating it here, as this appears to be the most popular ... read more

  • Your fish are worth more

    Pros: cheap
    Cons: Old and doesn't work long. Replacing parts is not fun.

    Summary: This isn't Tetra's newest air pump by any means. They have come out with a new design that looks space age but works well. Actual product The old 300 is a great pump for a while but lacks endurance. They sell replacement parts for these things ... read more

  • It took some time, but the Whisper lived up to it's name!

    Pros: If you have the right stand, it really is quiet.
    Cons: If you have the wrong stand, it makes a ton of noise.

    Summary: Having 3 fish tanks, plus one in the works, means we have the chance to experiment with various aquatic toys. One of our tanks uses a Tetra Whisper air pump to run a bubble wall, and although it's not perfect, it's a cost effective ... read more

    Pros: Very quiet.
    Cons: Didn't last long.

    Summary: Bought this air pump (Tetra Whisper 100) at the LFS to run one small bubble stone in a 75 gallon tank, it was all they had on the shelf.  The pump worked great, was very quiet, for about 3 months.  The pump stopped pumping air.  ... read more

  • Whisper Air Pump: Pretty Quiet, but Definitely Powerful

    Rated Show
    Pros: Dual Nozzle outlets; very powerful
    Cons: No built-in airflow control; a bit noisy

    Summary: I have whisper air pump with dual nozzles. I run two 12" x 1" bubble walls on it in 45 & 29 gallon tanks in addition to aerating the breeder. The pump has enough power to push the air through the bubble walls connected to it via over 5 feet of airline ... read more

    Pros: Most silent pump on the market. Cool design.
    Cons: None

    Summary: This is the first Air pump I ever bought and it has to be the quietest pump I've owned yet. Even if Tetra's filters are not the best, their Air Pumps rock! So quiet that you won't even know it's running. The only pump that even comes close to it is the ... read more

    Pros: Small quiet and cheap.
    Cons: Too small for most applications, burns out quickly.

    Summary: I have had about ten different bubblers and this brand has been fairly good. This bubbler is one of the more inexpensive models and works good for small 10gal or less fish tanks. It is a very quiet bubbler compared to others. The problem with these ... read more

  • Whisper Air Pumps--No Good!

    Rated Show
    Pros: Cost, if you can get it on clearance
    Cons: Loud, Old and Out of Style, color doesn't match aquariums very well

    Summary: Working at a fish store, I have had a lot of experience with air pumps and I would not recommend any Whisper brand air pumps. They tend to be noisy and I have even had customers say they melt. One guy had one melt to his antique dresser 3 months after h ... read more
