"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.

"Turns out, I LOVE them."

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.

"Works really great."

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.

The size of the mesh is small and perfect for my needs. Fully collapsed is perfect for my particular pond. My husband uses these nets to dip trash from our fountains! Just what we needed to filter hair& gunk from our drinkwell pet water fountain! Never have to put your hand in the tank. Mesh is tight enough that little fins don't get stuck in the net. I keep it hanging next to the skimmer and it lasts for the entire pool season.

"Have a look at my pic."

Mesh size is great for collecting leaves. Otherwise no issues with this product. Just wish it was a bit longer but it works for my size tank. I purchased these to get minnows out of my bate bucket and they work well. At least it has a decent depth to hold fish vertically. This will make keeping my breeding tanks organized so much easier. This one was perfect and almost free.

"They work great."

Suppose it would be gentle with small tropical fish too, very soft netting. Fully collapsed is perfect for my particular pond. Their barb's got stuck in the netting. Great so far, but when fully extended the wand is a tad flimsy. But for a fish tank, that would be optimal. Their barb's got stuck in the netting. Glad Amazon was smart enough to carry this quality aquarium net.

"Thanks for this item!"

I have guppies and bettas, and this is the perfect size for those types of fish. Kinda annoying, so a drop from 5 to 4 stars is the result of my complaint. Great product to use in a kiddie pool! This was shipped in a padded mailer and arrived bent. I will probably end up with one of these for each tank before I'm done. Swimming pool nets are too large for my hot tub.

"Well made."

The fine mesh allows me to capture fry with incident too. Glad Amazon was smart enough to carry this quality aquarium net. Nice little net for little fish and has good extension if using in larger tank. Got the 3inch size and its working well to skim my inflatable pool. These are your regular quality fish nets, pretty much just what you'd expect. Great net, just wish it was a little bit bigger. The three different sizes works best for each of the three different size bowls.

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.

"Nice net at a good price."

These nets are actually metal wire coated in plastic or rubber or something. This little net is just when I needed for my 2. Eventually I am sure they will rust or break. Remove the jar and shells to see just how big they will get. Swimming pool nets are too large for my hot tub. Never have to put your hand in the tank. Those dirty dishes in the washer will just have to wait.
