    I recently purchased the Tetra Whisper Corded Electric Air Pump for my aquarium, and I am quite pleased with its performance and ease of use. This air pump is designed to provide reliable and efficient aeration for aquariums, and it lives up to its promises.The first thing that impressed me about this air pump is its simplicity. It is incredibly easy to set up and use. The corded design eliminates the need for batteries, providing a consistent and reliable source of air for the aquarium. The plug-and-play functionality makes it convenient to start using right away.The Tetra Whisper Air Pump operates quietly, living up to its name. The minimal noise level ensures a peaceful and tranquil environment for both the fish and the aquarium owner. This is particularly important for those who have the aquarium in a living room or bedroom where excessive noise could be disruptive.The performance of this air pump is excellent. It generates a strong and consistent airflow, effectively aerating the water and providing essential oxygen to the aquatic inhabitants. The adjustable air flow control allows me to customize the aeration according to the specific needs of my aquarium.Durability is a standout feature of the Tetra Whisper Air Pump. It is made from high-quality materials and feels robust and long-lasting. It has held up well over time and has not shown any signs of diminished performance. This is important as a reliable air pump is crucial for the overall health and well-being of the aquarium ecosystem.One thing to consider is that this particular model of the Tetra Whisper Air Pump is non-UL, meaning it doesn’t carry a UL (Underwriters Laboratories) certification. While it meets the necessary safety standards, some aquarium owners may prefer an air pump with UL certification for added peace of mind.Overall, the Tetra Whisper Corded Electric Air Pump is a reliable and easy-to-use solution for aquarium aeration. Its simplicity, quiet operation, strong performance, and durability make it a great choice for aquarium enthusiasts. I highly recommend this air pump for anyone looking to enhance the oxygenation and overall health of their aquarium.

    I bought one of these to power a sponge filter on my temporary 2.5 gallon betta tank and another to power a DIY brine shrimp hatchery setup. The betta is being upgraded to a 6 gallon tank in a few weeks, which will definitely test the power of this pump more than it currently is, but I don’t think it will be a problem. It’s plenty powerful for the sponge filter in my 2.5 gallon tank currently and I have to use a control valve to slow down the air coming through so the water doesn’t end up too choppy for my betta and his snail tankmates. The noise level could be better (it seems to be more noisy than the up to 20 gallon tank rated air pump by the same brand), but overall it’s very quiet and gets drowned out in the sound of the fan I have going in my room. The air pump itself is small enough it can be placed directly behind my tank on the same stand, which is convenient for access to it in case I need to do maintenance, as well. It comes with a control valve as well which is awesome! I didn’t have to go spend $2 on one separately after all.Overall, can’t beat the value of the item for the price. Local stores like walmart have air pumps starting at something like $10 and are twice as noisy as this one and pet stores charge even more. Awesome pump and even more amazing price

    so I really don’t have much to say about this one, the air flow is pretty good, I haven’t had any issue… It is pretty durable though (my cats wanted to make sure it wasn’t breakable) But this air pump belongs to my tank in my house bathroom. So the noise isn’t as bad as you would think. Plus this sits on a glass surface of mine so the noise is barely even there.However my bubble wall did break so the noise has been a bit louder than usual, but that only has to do with the bubble wall affecting the sound. But again it’s in my bathroom so you can’t even hear it when you close the door to our bathroom. It’s been working fine, the hose for me though is a little short, I have a pretty bit tank and the hose it comes with isn’t as big as I would have hoped so if you have a pretty decent sized tank I would think about getting another hose for it possibly. So yeah, it’s quiet I wouldn’t say its obnoxiously loud or overbearing really even when it is loud. If the sound DOES get to that level, your equipment is probably faulty, and I suggest sending it back and getting your money if that happens.. But mine has been working fine.-xoxo Happy Shopping

    Ordered this pump because my top fin went out that I had for years. It was a great price! Nice pump but says its quiet but its still pretty noticeable. My top fine you could not hear at all but they are expensive. I ended up returning this one because it was to loud for me.

    Muy buena
     Muy potente tuve que repartirlo en 3 y aún así es mucho el movimiento que genera, y si hace poquito ruido tolerable

  6. Alex

    Smallboi go brrrr
    it’s a little noisy if it’s on a plastic shelf, like where I have mine… but I put a little towel under it, and i can’t even hear it.I’m gonna swap out the towel for a piece of one of those floor mat things..I went to my neighbour Bill’s house to see if he had any, but he said he just used his last piece. Now I have to order one of those floor mat things here on Amazon… but man.. I can’t remember what they’re called.. and all of my searches are coming up with these anti-fatigue mats that are just so expensive!Bill’s so unreliable sometimes..You know what… I can’t fault the manufacturers for this, I’m changing my review to a 5-star.

    Tetra 77851 Whisper Air Pump, 10-Gallon – not noisy at all
    At first when I set this up, I put the pump on top of my aquarium hood. It was really, really, noisy. I was so discouraged thinking I wouldn’t be able to use it after all. Then, I started experimenting with places to sit the pump on. I put it on my kitchen counter (as my fish tank is right next to the counter), and low, and behold, so quiet I couldn’t even hear it unless I put my ear almost touching the pump.Also, the pressure is pretty powerful for this unit, especially that it is for a 10 gallon, and I am using it on a 30 gallon. To tell you the truth, I wasn’t expecting many bubbles. But, it does blast out lots of bubbles. Another big plus to this unit is it comes with a small valve that you can put on (by connecting the tubes to either side of it.) That valve is awesome because it lets me control the flow of bubbles. At night, I like to turn it down for the fish. So, that was a big plus for me. Also, it’s bigger than I thought it would be. That’s fine too. I was thinking it would be a lot smaller. It has rubber feet on it so it doesn’t slip on its surface, and it controls the noise. I highly recommend this unit. But, like I mentioned find the right surface where it will be absolutely quiet before you start posting about how noisy it is..The shipping was so fast. It was here in a day as promised. Thank you again for the great service. I would like to add some feedback about leaving product reviews. Could you please include the product name in your review. That way we are reading about the exact product we are researching. I’ve been reading so many reviews on Amazon products I research that are not even related to what the product is mentioned on the sale page. Thank you.UPDATE: June 2021. The part that connects the hose to the unit completely broke off (not repairable), it wasn’t dropped or misused, so It only lasted 14 months.
