You would have to have the whisper that is rated for 10g. I have two filters to kick start the BB. The whisper 3i has BB from the 3.5g. The other filter is rated for 10g and I'm transferring the BB to that one. This is also temporary so that I use all the carbon filters i have left for both filters. I plan to buy a new 10g filter with a bio wheel. If your tank is getting dirty fast, then you might need more water changes.
From what I heard, the tetra whispers are not that good at cleaning the water. They are great for circulating the water and removing toxins.
