So i went to the lfs to buy a new filter and the lady there showed me how to take the propeller out and clean everything on my filter. It didnt work. They have whisper filters at wallmart for 20 bucks for a 10-15 gal tank. Im thinking of getting one of these (if a new propeller doesnt do the trick). Also, I saw that they have internal aquatech filters for 17 dollars for a 2-5 gallon tank. These could fit in a betta tank quite nicely.......and then I can go out and get that pretty yellow betta ive been eyeing. Hahah, man Im an addict.

Anyways, is the whisper a good filter or is cheap and crappy?

I like the Marineland 125 with biowheel for my tanks in the 10 to 20 gal range. You can get them from bigalsonline for around $20

What you probably need is not a new impeller, but the metal shaft that it goes on.

I have a hob whisper that I have had running in my 10 gallon for about 5 years. It is very quiet and I haven't had any trouble with it. *knock on wood*
