"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!

"Nets are more like 3."

Probably the best thing I have gotten! Those bigger nets are just too cumbersome to use in there and this is perfect. This will make keeping my breeding tanks organized so much easier. I usually use small Shad so it works perfect. I wanted one to clean an outside solar fountain. The birds love my water fountain and we do have it near our bird feeder. I keep it hanging next to the skimmer and it lasts for the entire pool season.

"Very fine mesh."

I wanted one to clean an outside solar fountain. The mesh net is very fine and nicely captures everything. They are just as described and great quality, especially for the price! This little net is just when I needed for my 2. There is nothing better than a solid wood handled aquarium net. But for the price I can't complain. It works fine and should last another few years for the purpose I bought it.

Rocutus Final Thoughts

"Quality seems decent."

I keep it hanging next to the skimmer and it lasts for the entire pool season. The lid on the boat fell on one of them and shattered the handle. They aren't anything special, just solid and a great value. 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. But it should be shipped in something that will protect it better. I have guppies and bettas, and this is the perfect size for those types of fish.

Blue Ribbon 030601 First Impressions

"Solidly built."

Great so far, but when fully extended the wand is a tad flimsy. I probably need one for each aquarium to prevent any type of transfer of problems. The birds love my water fountain and we do have it near our bird feeder. Got the 3inch size and its working well to skim my inflatable pool. But for a fish tank, that would be optimal. The mesh net is very fine and nicely captures everything. And these are also very reasonably priced as a fringe benefit.

"This came in quickly."

Just wish it was a bit longer but it works for my size tank. 4 sizes is incredibly helpful and these are super well made. This net perfectly fits my intended use. Yes, they're light, and they do feel a little flimsy. But for a fish tank, that would be optimal. The size of the mesh is small and perfect for my needs. I needed something bigger, stronger, and with a fine mesh.

"They're not."

Keeps me busy so I exercise longer. The mesh net is very fine and nicely captures everything. Nice little net for little fish and has good extension if using in larger tank. But for the price I can't complain. The wire for the net part is kind of soft though. Fully collapsed is perfect for my particular pond. I will probably end up with one of these for each tank before I'm done.

The mesh net is very fine and nicely captures everything. Like the radio antennae on an old car. The telescoping handle is fantastic!

"Works great!"

The plastic handles are not very tough. I do not have a big fish tank so, I needed a smaller net. I would certainly buy another of these if I needed more, it was a great buy! The lid on the boat fell on one of them and shattered the handle. And that extends time between water changes. Mesh is tight enough that little fins don't get stuck in the net. And they are not meant to scoop heavy things.

"Works like a charm."

Swimming pool nets are too large for my hot tub. If you want a actual bait net it's twice the amount of money. This is a great sized net for almost any size tank. Remove the jar and shells to see just how big they will get. I suspect that it will just if you don't. So far, very happy to have this tool in my aquarium toolkit! I have a 29G and a 20G long shrimp tank.

"They work great."

This net holds its shape and is soft for my shrimps. My kids use it to scoop up messes in our little pond, very easy to use. These nets are actually metal wire coated in plastic or rubber or something. Eventually I am sure they will rust or break. Most nets do not have sufficiently strong handles-- these DO. The lid on the boat fell on one of them and shattered the handle. Excellent net, very happy with it.

Otherwise no issues with this product. Easy to maneuver into corners with a fairlly deep pocket. So between feathers, bird seed and leaves this net has been wonderful! I figured I would try these this summer. Wish they had them in more than one size though. I use these for a bait net for my boat. Right size net for my needs, good value.

Great for the price very sturdy and much bigger than i expected! This is SUCH a great deal for a set of PREMIUM aquarium nets. I figured I would try these this summer. I usually use small Shad so it works perfect. I've had to bend it back into shape a few times. Exactly what I needed for my 5 gallon vertical tank that contains 5 male guppies. Have bought nets before and width was measurement used.

"So hope you are helped."

The fine mesh allows me to capture fry with incident too. There is no sloppiness when trying to net fish. Most nets do not have sufficiently strong handles-- these DO. Great so far, but when fully extended the wand is a tad flimsy. Suppose it would be gentle with small tropical fish too, very soft netting. I purchased these to get minnows out of my bate bucket and they work well. Glad Amazon was smart enough to carry this quality aquarium net.
