"Works great!"

I wanted one to clean an outside solar fountain. Exactly what I needed for my 5 gallon vertical tank that contains 5 male guppies. If your using anything over 4-5 inches might want to look into a actual bait net. But it should be shipped in something that will protect it better. Our tank is small, so this was perfect for maneuvering in the tight space. At least it has a decent depth to hold fish vertically. These nets work great and I have only needed the one so far.

  • GankPike Aquarium Fish Net – 3 Pcs Quick Catch Mesh Wire Net Safe for All Fish – 3 Inches, 4 Inches, 5 Inches
  • Aquarium fish net is safe for all fish. Fine nylon net lining is designed with their safety in mind. The multiple sizes of net is great for many different size fish and aquariums.
  • GankPike Quick Net blends in water to help catch those crafty, quick fish that make a hobby out of avoiding other nets that are easily seen in the water.
  • Great for cleaning out debris from the tank as well. You can easily skim the surface and remove light debris from the water.
  • Durable construction means it will last for many years without bending or breaking. This versatile net is a must have for all home aquariums!
  • Quantities: 3 pcs. Large: 5 inch diameter net, 10.25 inch long handle. Medium: 4 inch diameter net, 9.25 inch long handle. Small: 3 inch diameter net, 9 inch long handle

GankPike Final Thoughts

"Don't worry."

Keeps me busy so I exercise longer. Exactly what I needed for my 5 gallon vertical tank that contains 5 male guppies. These do the job and I like the variety of sizes. This net perfectly fits my intended use. Took a while for it to be delivered but definitely doing the trick for the mini-pool. Most nets do not have sufficiently strong handles-- these DO. I figured I would try these this summer.

"These worked great."

I suspect that it will just if you don't. If you want a actual bait net it's twice the amount of money. I don't regret this purchas though lots of size options for cheap cheap cheap! Glad Amazon was smart enough to carry this quality aquarium net. Great nets for the money they will last Awhile. This will make keeping my breeding tanks organized so much easier. I usually use small Shad so it works perfect.

Marina 11263 Final Thoughts

"Octagonal tank."

My kids use it to scoop up messes in our little pond, very easy to use. I was initially scared of the other reviews, seeing how theirs had rusted. And that extends time between water changes. I usually use small Shad so it works perfect. I breed Africa cichlids and the nets I was getting from pet co were not cutting it. If you want a actual bait net it's twice the amount of money. Kinda annoying, so a drop from 5 to 4 stars is the result of my complaint.

"Nice net at a good price."

Way better than having to go to the store to buy only one at the same price. And these are also very reasonably priced as a fringe benefit. Those bigger nets are just too cumbersome to use in there and this is perfect. The wire for the net part is kind of soft though. Just wish it was a bit longer but it works for my size tank. I bought 3 and will buy them again. I probably need one for each aquarium to prevent any type of transfer of problems.

"Have a look at my pic."

The telescoping handle is fantastic! I HATED trying to catch shrimp before, so I was skeptical this would help at all. These nets are very small, but deep. Those bigger nets are just too cumbersome to use in there and this is perfect. Wiggles , our betta who lives in a 2. It's all about having the right tools! Suppose it would be gentle with small tropical fish too, very soft netting.

"Well made."

Fully collapsed is perfect for my particular pond. The mesh net is very fine and nicely captures everything. I don't regret this purchas though lots of size options for cheap cheap cheap! I will probably end up with one of these for each tank before I'm done. We were too rough with it and the handle broke on the first day. Love that it is a four pack because we will have extra. Great net, just wish it was a little bit bigger.

Eventually I am sure they will rust or break. Eventually I am sure they will rust or break. These are your regular quality fish nets, pretty much just what you'd expect. Took a while for it to be delivered but definitely doing the trick for the mini-pool. Very nice for smaller tanks or large tanks. I'm updating my review because I just bought a second one of these. Would highly recommend the Marina Nylon Net line of products to any aquarium owners.

"Great product!"

So far, very happy to have this tool in my aquarium toolkit! I don't regret this purchas though lots of size options for cheap cheap cheap! The wire for the net part is kind of soft though. Mesh is tight enough that little fins don't get stuck in the net. Nothing is going to escape this net! I do recommend this to anyone looking for a smaller size fish tank net. Mesh size is great for collecting leaves.

Lee Fish Net Isolation Box - Lee's Aquatics Final Thoughts

"These worked great."

It's all about having the right tools! Nice net but I guess I should have read more closely. Great so far, but when fully extended the wand is a tad flimsy. Never have to put your hand in the tank. I usually use small Shad so it works perfect. It works perfect for my 20G and 29G. Catching things I can barely see with my eyes.

"Good price."

The size of the mesh is small and perfect for my needs. The three different sizes works best for each of the three different size bowls. Great telescoping net good for storing. Works good, the extendable handle is nice. We were too rough with it and the handle broke on the first day. Have bought nets before and width was measurement used. 4 sizes is incredibly helpful and these are super well made.

"Net is a little soft."

Love that it is a four pack because we will have extra. It is actually pretty easy to scoop shrimp in! I didn't think she would even notice them, but she also likes to play with them. These nets work great and I have only needed the one so far. I've had to bend it back into shape a few times. The three different sizes works best for each of the three different size bowls. 4 sizes is incredibly helpful and these are super well made.

"A serious lifesaver."

This net holds its shape and is soft for my shrimps. It works fine and should last another few years for the purpose I bought it. Catching things I can barely see with my eyes. The birds love my water fountain and we do have it near our bird feeder. Net end is sorta flexible giving better options round to oval like. This one will undoubtedly last for a along, long time. The birds come for drinks and baths.

"The netting is soft."

Great so far, but when fully extended the wand is a tad flimsy. This little fish tank net arrived on time and in good condition still in its wrapper. A larger net would make it tough to get junk out of the small spaces. Great net, just wish it was a little bit bigger. When done using, extend it all the way. It works perfect for my 20G and 29G. Nice net but I guess I should have read more closely.
