"99 or whatever this was."

I have guppies and bettas, and this is the perfect size for those types of fish. Way better than having to go to the store to buy only one at the same price. Net is square and fine so as not hurt fish or remove small particles from water. Mesh size is great for collecting leaves. So far, very happy to have this tool in my aquarium toolkit! Probably the best thing I have gotten! They aren't anything special, just solid and a great value.

Fluval 11256 Final Thoughts

"Well constructed."

The lid on the boat fell on one of them and shattered the handle. Most nets do not have sufficiently strong handles-- these DO. The mesh net is very fine and nicely captures everything. These do the job and I like the variety of sizes. Love that it is a four pack because we will have extra. It works perfect for my 20G and 29G. Nothing is going to escape this net!

"But it works."

I suspect that it will just if you don't. This net perfectly fits my intended use. When done using, extend it all the way. I purchased these to get minnows out of my bate bucket and they work well. Net end is sorta flexible giving better options round to oval like. I would certainly buy another of these if I needed more, it was a great buy! Kinda annoying, so a drop from 5 to 4 stars is the result of my complaint.

DAGUANZHI Final Thoughts

"Great product!"

It's all about having the right tools! They are just as described and great quality, especially for the price! At least it has a decent depth to hold fish vertically. I'm sure that'll break eventually, but it's held up okay so far. Nice little net for little fish and has good extension if using in larger tank. These do the job and I like the variety of sizes. My kids use it to scoop up messes in our little pond, very easy to use.

3. Weco Classic Net-Coarse Mesh with Extra Long Handle, 5"

Weco Products 37702055 First Impressions

"On these its diagonal."

I've had to bend it back into shape a few times. If you want a actual bait net it's twice the amount of money. Works good, the extendable handle is nice. I purchased these to get minnows out of my bate bucket and they work well. Nice net but I guess I should have read more closely. Mesh is tight enough that little fins don't get stuck in the net. I am planning to slowly siphon the hatched eggs into the aquarium.

"Would buy again."

4 sizes is incredibly helpful and these are super well made. This one was perfect and almost free. This extendable net is working just perfectly for me! Remove the jar and shells to see just how big they will get. I probably need one for each aquarium to prevent any type of transfer of problems. Remove the jar and shells to see just how big they will get. The birds come for drinks and baths.

"I am very satisfied."

I keep it hanging next to the skimmer and it lasts for the entire pool season. Like the radio antennae on an old car. I'm updating my review because I just bought a second one of these. Great telescoping net good for storing. Those bigger nets are just too cumbersome to use in there and this is perfect. I love the reach of this net and that it holds its shape. Never have to put your hand in the tank.

Cobella Final Thoughts

"May be a while!"

Very pleased with the quality materials. Easy to maneuver into corners with a fairlly deep pocket. Catching things I can barely see with my eyes. Great so far, but when fully extended the wand is a tad flimsy. There is nothing better than a solid wood handled aquarium net. I probably need one for each aquarium to prevent any type of transfer of problems. I would have rated 4 stars, but it's my fault for not looking at the dimensions.

This little fish tank net arrived on time and in good condition still in its wrapper. If your using anything over 4-5 inches might want to look into a actual bait net.

"Well made."

I can easily clean out all the debris and just add a little water when needed. After not really finding what I wanted in the stores I thought I would check Amazon. Nothing is going to escape this net! I will probably end up with one of these for each tank before I'm done. I suspect that it will just if you don't. The wire for the net part is kind of soft though. Right size net for my needs, good value.

"The net itself is tiny."

Nice net but I guess I should have read more closely. I've had to bend it back into shape a few times. This is SUCH a great deal for a set of PREMIUM aquarium nets. Swimming pool nets are too large for my hot tub. This telescoping net is exactly what I was looking for. Will definitely buy again if I need them. This one will undoubtedly last for a along, long time.

"I love this net."

But for a fish tank, that would be optimal. I actually use this product to keep my large outdoor fountain clean. Most nets do not have sufficiently strong handles-- these DO. But for a fish tank, that would be optimal. When done using, extend it all the way. This net holds its shape and is soft for my shrimps. I HATED trying to catch shrimp before, so I was skeptical this would help at all.

"I am very satisfied."

So far, very happy to have this tool in my aquarium toolkit! Very nice for smaller tanks or large tanks. I breed Africa cichlids and the nets I was getting from pet co were not cutting it. Suppose it would be gentle with small tropical fish too, very soft netting. Those dirty dishes in the washer will just have to wait. If you want a actual bait net it's twice the amount of money. Nice little net for little fish and has good extension if using in larger tank.
