"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.

"May be a while!"

These do the job and I like the variety of sizes. Will definitely buy again if I need them. It works perfect for my 20G and 29G. And they are not meant to scoop heavy things. It works perfect for my 20G and 29G. These nets are actually metal wire coated in plastic or rubber or something. But it should be shipped in something that will protect it better.

"So far I have no cons!"

This net did the trick for our quick little betta fish. It is absolutely perfect for cleaning bare-bottom tanks. This one was perfect and almost free. I do not have a big fish tank so, I needed a smaller net. I wanted one to clean an outside solar fountain. I actually use this product to keep my large outdoor fountain clean. I figured I would try these this summer.

Marina 11262 Final Thoughts

"Eenie-teenie-tiny net."

And that extends time between water changes. It is absolutely perfect for cleaning bare-bottom tanks. This will make keeping my breeding tanks organized so much easier. I was initially scared of the other reviews, seeing how theirs had rusted. Love that it is a four pack because we will have extra. I probably need one for each aquarium to prevent any type of transfer of problems. There is no sloppiness when trying to net fish.

"Turns out, I LOVE them."

Have bought nets before and width was measurement used. These do the job and I like the variety of sizes. Great telescoping net good for storing. Great so far, but when fully extended the wand is a tad flimsy. Way better than having to go to the store to buy only one at the same price. Still, a good value if you need really small cheap nets. I have been using this net for my hot tub and it works great!

Pawfly First Impressions

"I am very satisfied."

Most nets do not have sufficiently strong handles-- these DO. I am planning to slowly siphon the hatched eggs into the aquarium. This little net is just when I needed for my 2. I do recommend this to anyone looking for a smaller size fish tank net. I breed Africa cichlids and the nets I was getting from pet co were not cutting it. I wanted one to clean an outside solar fountain. I didn't think she would even notice them, but she also likes to play with them.

Pawfly Final Thoughts

"That's a win!"

If you want a actual bait net it's twice the amount of money. There is no sloppiness when trying to net fish. Right size net for my needs, good value. Those bigger nets are just too cumbersome to use in there and this is perfect. Fully collapsed is perfect for my particular pond. Most nets do not have sufficiently strong handles-- these DO. The birds love my water fountain and we do have it near our bird feeder.

Wiggles , our betta who lives in a 2. Exactly what I needed for my 5 gallon vertical tank that contains 5 male guppies. Yes, they're light, and they do feel a little flimsy.

"As described."

I figured I would try these this summer. It works fine and should last another few years for the purpose I bought it. This one was perfect and almost free. 4 sizes is incredibly helpful and these are super well made. But it should be shipped in something that will protect it better. And these are also very reasonably priced as a fringe benefit. Got the 3inch size and its working well to skim my inflatable pool.

I use these for a bait net for my boat. Will definitely buy again if I need them. Sturdy, easy to clean and easy to use. Like the radio antennae on an old car. I suspect that it will just if you don't. Swimming pool nets are too large for my hot tub. There is nothing better than a solid wood handled aquarium net.

"Really good length."

This net perfectly fits my intended use. Their barb's got stuck in the netting. Net end is sorta flexible giving better options round to oval like. But for the price I can't complain. This telescoping net is exactly what I was looking for. The rod extends out like an antenna so you don't have to bend down while cleaning. The plastic handles are not very tough.
