"Thank you Pawfly."

So far, very happy to have this tool in my aquarium toolkit! Very nice for smaller tanks or large tanks. Would highly recommend the Marina Nylon Net line of products to any aquarium owners. Keeps me busy so I exercise longer. They aren't anything special, just solid and a great value. Will definitely buy again if I need them. Nice net but I guess I should have read more closely.

PIVBY Final Thoughts

"True to size and sturdy."

Got the 3inch size and its working well to skim my inflatable pool. I bought 3 and will buy them again. After not really finding what I wanted in the stores I thought I would check Amazon. Wiggles , our betta who lives in a 2. When done using, extend it all the way. When done using, extend it all the way. I have guppies and bettas, and this is the perfect size for those types of fish.

2. Penn Plax Aquarium Net, 3-Inch, red

Penn-Plax QNR3 First Impressions

"Light weight, yet sturdy."

I breed Africa cichlids and the nets I was getting from pet co were not cutting it. I have been using this net for my hot tub and it works great! The lid on the boat fell on one of them and shattered the handle. Our tank is small, so this was perfect for maneuvering in the tight space. I have been using this net for my hot tub and it works great! These nets are actually metal wire coated in plastic or rubber or something. Love that it is a four pack because we will have extra.

Penn-Plax QNR3 Final Thoughts

"These nets a great!"

The wire for the net part is kind of soft though. This is SUCH a great deal for a set of PREMIUM aquarium nets. I actually use this product to keep my large outdoor fountain clean. If you want a actual bait net it's twice the amount of money. Don't think I’ll need the second one for quite some time. Keeps me busy so I exercise longer. I can easily clean out all the debris and just add a little water when needed.

Deep Blue Professional 894057 First Impressions

"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.

Deep Blue Professional 894057 Final Thoughts

"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.

AquaTop AQUATOP-FN7-S First Impressions

"So far I have no cons!"

These do the job and I like the variety of sizes. They are just as described and great quality, especially for the price! I do not have a big fish tank so, I needed a smaller net. So far, very happy to have this tool in my aquarium toolkit! Still, a good value if you need really small cheap nets. And that extends time between water changes. And these are also very reasonably priced as a fringe benefit.

AquaTop AQUATOP-FN7-S Final Thoughts

"Works great!"

I love the reach of this net and that it holds its shape. Right size net for my needs, good value. I usually use small Shad so it works perfect. Mesh is tight enough that little fins don't get stuck in the net. These do the job and I like the variety of sizes. It is actually pretty easy to scoop shrimp in! Still, a good value if you need really small cheap nets.

"Net is a little soft."

4 sizes is incredibly helpful and these are super well made. They aren't anything special, just solid and a great value. Their barb's got stuck in the netting. My kids use it to scoop up messes in our little pond, very easy to use. If your using anything over 4-5 inches might want to look into a actual bait net. When done using, extend it all the way. Mesh size is great for collecting leaves.

uxcell a16020200ux0429 First Impressions

"This made it much easier."

Have bought nets before and width was measurement used. Great product to use in a kiddie pool! Nice little net for little fish and has good extension if using in larger tank. Fully collapsed is perfect for my particular pond. Great nets for the money they will last Awhile. I'm sure that'll break eventually, but it's held up okay so far. But it should be shipped in something that will protect it better.

"This is that perfect net."

But it should be shipped in something that will protect it better. We were too rough with it and the handle broke on the first day. My kids use it to scoop up messes in our little pond, very easy to use. Glad Amazon was smart enough to carry this quality aquarium net. Net is square and fine so as not hurt fish or remove small particles from water. Most nets do not have sufficiently strong handles-- these DO. This net did the trick for our quick little betta fish.

User Ratings: 67

Clear Mesh Netting First Impressions

"This is a good net."

Great so far, but when fully extended the wand is a tad flimsy. It works perfect for my 20G and 29G. A larger net would make it tough to get junk out of the small spaces. I've had to bend it back into shape a few times. I have guppies and bettas, and this is the perfect size for those types of fish. I usually use small Shad so it works perfect. I do recommend this to anyone looking for a smaller size fish tank net.

"No issues whatsoever."

They aren't anything special, just solid and a great value. Nothing is going to escape this net! Net end is sorta flexible giving better options round to oval like. The size of the mesh is small and perfect for my needs. So between feathers, bird seed and leaves this net has been wonderful! This one was perfect and almost free.
