YakGear First Impressions

"It works great."

This net is well made, sturdy handle and large enough to catch fish easily. Mesh is tight enough that little fins don't get stuck in the net. Great product to use in a kiddie pool! And they are not meant to scoop heavy things. This net is well made, sturdy handle and large enough to catch fish easily. The plastic handles are not very tough. Catching things I can barely see with my eyes.

YakGear Final Thoughts

"But it works."

But for a fish tank, that would be optimal. Kinda annoying, so a drop from 5 to 4 stars is the result of my complaint. Suppose it would be gentle with small tropical fish too, very soft netting. At least it has a decent depth to hold fish vertically. And these are also very reasonably priced as a fringe benefit. I bought these to use when I am sitting with my child in her kiddie pool. They aren't anything special, just solid and a great value.

2. uxcell Aquarium Fishbowl Plastic Spiral Handle Fish Landing Net Mesh Pink 13cm Wide

uxcell a17042500ux0910 First Impressions

"May be a while!"

And that extends time between water changes. The fine mesh allows me to capture fry with incident too. We need to clean out the pond and this works great. So between feathers, bird seed and leaves this net has been wonderful! The mesh net is very fine and nicely captures everything. I probably need one for each aquarium to prevent any type of transfer of problems. 4 sizes is incredibly helpful and these are super well made.

"This came in quickly."

I probably need one for each aquarium to prevent any type of transfer of problems. Easy to maneuver into corners with a fairlly deep pocket. I am planning to slowly siphon the hatched eggs into the aquarium. Very pleased with the quality materials. Yes, they're light, and they do feel a little flimsy. I didn't think she would even notice them, but she also likes to play with them. But for the price I can't complain.

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!

"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.

"Just what I expected."

We need to clean out the pond and this works great. This net did the trick for our quick little betta fish. Exactly what I needed for my 5 gallon vertical tank that contains 5 male guppies. When done using, extend it all the way. I have guppies and bettas, and this is the perfect size for those types of fish. I've had to bend it back into shape a few times. Like the radio antennae on an old car.

"No regrets."

Those dirty dishes in the washer will just have to wait. I HATED trying to catch shrimp before, so I was skeptical this would help at all. It is actually pretty easy to scoop shrimp in! It has worked very well for me and I especially like the small size of it. I do recommend this to anyone looking for a smaller size fish tank net. Fully collapsed is perfect for my particular pond. I have been using this net for my hot tub and it works great!

"Humblekoi."

It works perfect for my 20G and 29G. It is actually pretty easy to scoop shrimp in! This is a great sized net for almost any size tank. Remove the jar and shells to see just how big they will get. Don't think I’ll need the second one for quite some time. Great net, just wish it was a little bit bigger. Great so far, but when fully extended the wand is a tad flimsy.

I use these for a bait net for my boat. But it should be shipped in something that will protect it better. There is no sloppiness when trying to net fish.
