Deepwater Pumps AP 150
Very pleased with this pump.
Previously, I had two smaller pumps for the air strip tubes that run the length of my 50 gallon tank. This new pump replaces both of the "smaller pumps" (but it's not that much larger than either one) and since it's rated for up to 150 gallons, I'm getting lots of air bubbles--more than the other two pumps produced together, and it's quieter! I'm very happy.

Great for deep tanks!
I love this pump, it's great for a deep tank. I had a problem with the first one I bought, it just need some rubber cups. I emailed Whisper as to where I could find parts and the sent me a brand new one! I've had this one for 7 years and its quite and runs great on my 80 gallon. This is the only air pump I'll ever buy. Whisper stands tall behind their product.

I used a couple of the Whisper Air Pumps to aerate my coke bottle phytoplankton culture. For their top model, the Model 100, it can barely support 4 bottles, and it has "some" degree of noise. I thought since it's their most powerful one, the noise is unavoidable.
I needed to have more culture so I got a Tetra Whisper AP 300 last week. After I had it plugged it, I had to double check the power to make sure it is running. I was expecting 2-3x more noise than the "Whisper Air Pump" since it is even more powerful than the "Whisper" one. To my surprise, the Tetra is extremely quiet! Now i have just one of the Tetra to replace the two "Whisper" pump and have it connected to 9 bottles of coke bottle plankton cultures. Now the culture room is unbelievably quiet with this Tetra running! Going to order another one right now.
