"These nets a great!"

If your using anything over 4-5 inches might want to look into a actual bait net. These nets are very small, but deep. It works perfect for my 20G and 29G. I have been on the hunt for the perfect net for the last several months. I can easily clean out all the debris and just add a little water when needed. I actually use this product to keep my large outdoor fountain clean. Easy to maneuver into corners with a fairlly deep pocket.

Penn-Plax QN2 Final Thoughts

"I have no complaints."

When done using, extend it all the way. I do recommend this to anyone looking for a smaller size fish tank net. This is a great sized net for almost any size tank. This little fish tank net arrived on time and in good condition still in its wrapper. I bought these to use when I am sitting with my child in her kiddie pool. Our tank is small, so this was perfect for maneuvering in the tight space. They are just as described and great quality, especially for the price!

It is actually pretty easy to scoop shrimp in! The size of the mesh is small and perfect for my needs. They are just as described and great quality, especially for the price!

"Good price."

This is SUCH a great deal for a set of PREMIUM aquarium nets. I HATED trying to catch shrimp before, so I was skeptical this would help at all. I suspect that it will just if you don't. I do recommend this to anyone looking for a smaller size fish tank net. Those dirty dishes in the washer will just have to wait. And they are not meant to scoop heavy things. It has worked very well for me and I especially like the small size of it.

"That's a win!"

These nets work great and I have only needed the one so far. This net did the trick for our quick little betta fish. Sturdy, easy to clean and easy to use. I would have rated 4 stars, but it's my fault for not looking at the dimensions. Otherwise no issues with this product. Otherwise no issues with this product. The three different sizes works best for each of the three different size bowls.

This is SUCH a great deal for a set of PREMIUM aquarium nets. And these are also very reasonably priced as a fringe benefit. Otherwise no issues with this product. I've had to bend it back into shape a few times. Net end is sorta flexible giving better options round to oval like. At least it has a decent depth to hold fish vertically. Got the 3inch size and its working well to skim my inflatable pool.
