Tetra whisper 3i bubbles

I recently purchased a whisper 3i filter. I am experiencing some problems with it. I understand that it is supposed to bubbles in the back of the filter, but the bubbles seem to be spilling excessively over and out of the filter. I would like to know if this is normal? Thanks

Just probably means that you have too strong of a pump for it and need to reduce the flow a bit :)

Unfortunately, that's the way they work --- or don't work. You have noticed that the water flow does not flow through the filter cartridge, but only over the top 1/2 inch or so. It's poorly designed. It does not filter. The air pump is not half bad.

Anybody know where the "Sponge Filter Thread" went? (Lemme go look.)

Welcome to the forum.
