"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!

Sumind Final Thoughts

"I am very satisfied."

The rod extends out like an antenna so you don't have to bend down while cleaning. Got the 3inch size and its working well to skim my inflatable pool. I figured I would try these this summer. I have been on the hunt for the perfect net for the last several months. The birds love my water fountain and we do have it near our bird feeder. Very pleased with the quality materials. This telescoping net is exactly what I was looking for.

Aquarium Masters Final Thoughts

"No regrets."

If you want a actual bait net it's twice the amount of money. But it should be shipped in something that will protect it better. I do not have a big fish tank so, I needed a smaller net. Remove the jar and shells to see just how big they will get. Remove the jar and shells to see just how big they will get. I bought one of these for each tank. I will probably end up with one of these for each tank before I'm done.

"I am very satisfied."

Great product to use in a kiddie pool! Great so far, but when fully extended the wand is a tad flimsy. I bought 3 and will buy them again. But for the price I can't complain. Very pleased with the quality materials. The wire for the net part is kind of soft though. Net is square and fine so as not hurt fish or remove small particles from water.

Far Edge Aquatics First Impressions

"No complaints!"

The size of the mesh is small and perfect for my needs. Swimming pool nets are too large for my hot tub. And they are not meant to scoop heavy things. This one was perfect and almost free. Kinda annoying, so a drop from 5 to 4 stars is the result of my complaint. Yes, they're light, and they do feel a little flimsy. It's all about having the right tools!

  • Clear netting ideal for a custom aquarium lid & aquarium projects.

My kids use it to scoop up messes in our little pond, very easy to use. I've had to bend it back into shape a few times. Great so far, but when fully extended the wand is a tad flimsy. Their barb's got stuck in the netting. Nice net but I guess I should have read more closely. Wiggles , our betta who lives in a 2. I do not have a big fish tank so, I needed a smaller net.

We were too rough with it and the handle broke on the first day. Very pleased with the quality materials. It is actually pretty easy to scoop shrimp in! Probably the best thing I have gotten! The birds love my water fountain and we do have it near our bird feeder. I usually use small Shad so it works perfect. I am planning to slowly siphon the hatched eggs into the aquarium.

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.

"True to size and sturdy."

I love the reach of this net and that it holds its shape. The net is very soft and it has a nice wooden handle. I probably need one for each aquarium to prevent any type of transfer of problems. There is nothing better than a solid wood handled aquarium net. There is no sloppiness when trying to net fish. These nets are actually metal wire coated in plastic or rubber or something. I'm sure that'll break eventually, but it's held up okay so far.

Have bought nets before and width was measurement used. I have been using this net for my hot tub and it works great! Great telescoping net good for storing. Fully collapsed is perfect for my particular pond. Wish they had them in more than one size though. I usually use small Shad so it works perfect.
