"Quality seems decent."

Never have to put your hand in the tank. The telescoping handle is fantastic! I don't regret this purchas though lots of size options for cheap cheap cheap! Most nets do not have sufficiently strong handles-- these DO. They were so nice and STURDY that I ordered 4 more. Probably the best thing I have gotten! I've had to bend it back into shape a few times.

Pen Plax QNR6 Final Thoughts

"On these its diagonal."

The net is very soft and it has a nice wooden handle. Net end is sorta flexible giving better options round to oval like. Wish they had them in more than one size though. The wire for the net part is kind of soft though. Exactly what I needed for my 5 gallon vertical tank that contains 5 male guppies. I bought one of these for each tank. Swimming pool nets are too large for my hot tub.

"Well made."

Wiggles , our betta who lives in a 2. Great net, just wish it was a little bit bigger. My husband uses these nets to dip trash from our fountains! I would certainly buy another of these if I needed more, it was a great buy! Have bought nets before and width was measurement used. There is nothing better than a solid wood handled aquarium net. The fine mesh allows me to capture fry with incident too.

Pen Plax QNR10 Final Thoughts

"Turns out, I LOVE them."

These nets are very small, but deep. I purchased these to get minnows out of my bate bucket and they work well. Would highly recommend the Marina Nylon Net line of products to any aquarium owners. I use these for a bait net for my boat. Exactly what I needed for my 5 gallon vertical tank that contains 5 male guppies. And that extends time between water changes. Yes, they're light, and they do feel a little flimsy.

Pen Plax QNR8 First Impressions

"Great net."

It is absolutely perfect for cleaning bare-bottom tanks. Nice net but I guess I should have read more closely. I was initially scared of the other reviews, seeing how theirs had rusted. Fully collapsed is perfect for my particular pond. Don't think I’ll need the second one for quite some time. A larger net would make it tough to get junk out of the small spaces. I have a 29G and a 20G long shrimp tank.

Great net, just wish it was a little bit bigger. My husband uses these nets to dip trash from our fountains! Will definitely buy again if I need them. Wish they had them in more than one size though. But for a fish tank, that would be optimal. My kids use it to scoop up messes in our little pond, very easy to use. After not really finding what I wanted in the stores I thought I would check Amazon.

"They're not."

I do not have a big fish tank so, I needed a smaller net. The size of the mesh is small and perfect for my needs. 4 sizes is incredibly helpful and these are super well made. They were so nice and STURDY that I ordered 4 more. Works good, the extendable handle is nice. These nets work great and I have only needed the one so far. He now has three in the bank for when the first one is worn out!

"It works perfectly."

This net is well made, sturdy handle and large enough to catch fish easily. This little fish tank net arrived on time and in good condition still in its wrapper. Fully collapsed is perfect for my particular pond. Love that it is a four pack because we will have extra. I would have rated 4 stars, but it's my fault for not looking at the dimensions. I have been using this net for my hot tub and it works great! This one was perfect and almost free.

"They are super!"

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.

"Good price, Good quality."

If your using anything over 4-5 inches might want to look into a actual bait net. I'm sure that'll break eventually, but it's held up okay so far. And these are also very reasonably priced as a fringe benefit. Nice little net for little fish and has good extension if using in larger tank. The size of the mesh is small and perfect for my needs.

"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.
