"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!

"I really love this net."

Yes, they're light, and they do feel a little flimsy. But it should be shipped in something that will protect it better. These nets are actually metal wire coated in plastic or rubber or something. I didn't think she would even notice them, but she also likes to play with them. It has worked very well for me and I especially like the small size of it. Nice net but I guess I should have read more closely. Have bought nets before and width was measurement used.

"Super fine net material."

I was initially scared of the other reviews, seeing how theirs had rusted. Wiggles love's it and says if your thinking about buying one for your Mr. Great product to use in a kiddie pool! It is actually pretty easy to scoop shrimp in! I keep it hanging next to the skimmer and it lasts for the entire pool season. I love the reach of this net and that it holds its shape. Don't think I’ll need the second one for quite some time.

"May be a while!"

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. But for a fish tank, that would be optimal. I don't regret this purchas though lots of size options for cheap cheap cheap! The telescoping handle is fantastic! Works good, the extendable handle is nice.

"They're perfect."

We were too rough with it and the handle broke on the first day. I HATED trying to catch shrimp before, so I was skeptical this would help at all. They were so nice and STURDY that I ordered 4 more. Just wish it was a bit longer but it works for my size tank. But for a fish tank, that would be optimal. I have been using this net for my hot tub and it works great! It has worked very well for me and I especially like the small size of it.
