I have a 40i filter for a 20 g tank with a turtle and Two gold fish. It does a fantastic job easy to clean and easy to change the filter the quietest filter I have ever used. The gold fish are now about 4 inches long and the turtle is about 5 inches long and both are very messy. I change the filter about every two weeks

So I bought this from my local pet store. I do a complete water change, even took my rocks out and clean them. Filled the tank back up and installed my new 40 gal model. It work amazing for the first week, then all the sudden it becomes very noisy, I go to investigate and now the water is not only being pushed through the spillway area but on both sides of the filter itself. I take it out, rinse the filters, check for clogs (which there were none) and plug it back in. Works perfectly, for 10 minutes then back to the same as before, water being pushed out of the top and down the sides. I called customer service and they told my it needed cleaned. So I clean the dang thing all over again with the same results. I send them an email, which I have never had a reply to. I do a little research online and find that I am not the only one with this complaint, most people say it just needs cleaned or filters replaced. I would find this acceptable but my water was fresh to start with and it only was in for a week before it started acting up. If the filters only have a life of one week, well they should print that on the box. This thing is so noisy that I have to unplug it just to watch TV. The only good thing I can say is that for that first week my water was crystal clear.

Parts not as good as the whole

Comments about Tetra Second Nature 5 - 10 Gallon Aquarium Power Filter:

Although it is a quiet model, easy to clean and user friendly, the suction cup on the back as well as the over-the-tank arm are constantly needing to be replaced. I'm sure this works great for just a fish enthusiast, but for anyone with turtles--do not get!! The turtle will easily use it's body to pop the suction cup right off the unit and any turtle larger than a softball can climb up the side and cause stress on the arm, which will bend until broken.

Comments about Tetra Second Nature 5 - 10 Gallon Aquarium Power Filter:

It's quiet that's about the only good thing I can say about Tetra's Whisper 40i, Cons. it's obnoxiously big, no lid on it to stop it from tossing water out of the tank from the top of the unit, it sends water all over and God help you if you're gone for the day, it reaches a good third of the way down in my 40 gallon aquarium so if you're gone for the day 1/3 of your tanks water will be on your floor and then your running the filter dry which will more than likely burn it out. Unit does not sit securely it wiggles as it is only held in place by one suction cup and a cheap piece of plastic hook to hang it by which is not secure and moves around itself allowing the unit wiggle back and forth as it runs luckily I had no fish in my tank or could of been even worse as the water it spews all over. Worst filter I have ever owned!

I bought the tetra whisper 10i and in two weeks the motor went out in it. Thankfully it was in my isolation tank which no fish were in at the time.
