"My fishes will be happy!"

I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green. It comes with 2 removable dividers and a removable fry drop slotted piece. Both are designed for free floating. We need to do mare to make sure bettas are treated better in pet stores, though. Fits nicely in a size 10 gallon tank. I have both the small and larger version. I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating.

"Works as it should."

Easily accommodates two Molly's, swords or platy fish. It's roomy and gives them space to move around. That way the water still flows nicely in where mom is. I also like that it goes in to the tank and not a hang on the outside type. Both are designed for free floating. It's roomy and gives them space to move around. Mine's been doing fine and very useful.

"A good purchase for."

Future design improvement- less room for fry, more room for moms. Good quality and easy to take apart. Now he's chilling in quarantine until he heals. I never knew how important this was until tank cleaning time! I own 7 of these isolation, breeding tanks. I ordered this and it came next day. I didn't have the space for an external one.

"Thank you so much!"

I put the rainbar into it so now they can't escape. Apparently my purple Betta, Dragonfruit, did not get the memo. I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again. I never knew how important this was until tank cleaning time! This is the best floating breeder I have ever tried. The babies are now in the box without the middle divider piece. Neither ended up having their babies in the breeder box.

Flameer First Impressions

"Awesome product."

There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box. I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used. With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. She doesn't seem very stressed, honestly, and likes to nap in the V's. I left it out and the babies were sneaking out through that hole. I don't see how they send used stuff out as new! There are slats in the bottom for the babies to escape to, to keep from being eaten.

Flameer Final Thoughts

"It's nice an big."

For me, the geatest feature is that it floats and floats evenly. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. I ordered this product for my Balloon mollie babies. I had a 2 pregnant guppies and bought this for them. I put three pregnant females in the box immediately. Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin. I have safe little fry and more to come!

"Great design."

Unlike the males, female Bettas should get along together. Neither ended up having their babies in the breeder box. Unlike the males, female Bettas should get along together. This product is good for the price. This keeps her area better airated and actually helps flow the babies out. I am using several to sort through some fish I am breeding. It would have been nice to have the suction cups.

"This product is great."

When I came across this one that showed the actual inner dimensions, I was impressed. This works better at protecting babies from mom than the one room nets. We need to do mare to make sure bettas are treated better in pet stores, though. It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. He had room to still swim around and I didn't feel too guilty. Undeniably the best seller I've encountered. This product is good for the price.

"Mines in the mail ."

Perfect for holding my guppy babies. This is the best floating breeder I have ever tried. I didn't have the space for an external one. The dimensions for the large size are approximately 8. I tested both my tank and box water to find a big difference in Ammonia levels. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment. I have safe little fry and more to come!

Hope you found this review helpful! This is the best floating breeder I have ever tried. There's only one issue with this unit. I put three pregnant females in the box immediately.

"My own dumb fault."

Took me a little while to figure it out but it worked for me. I got this so I can just put him in our 20-gallon hex with the angelfish. I really like that it has suction cups, and is very sturdy on the glass. When I came across this one that showed the actual inner dimensions, I was impressed. Easily accommodates two Molly's, swords or platy fish. I actually put it in my 10 gallon baby fry tank. With the pump it's completely circulated and levels are normal.

Tiberham Final Thoughts

"Overall I did like it."

As with many plastics, if it isn't thick enough, then it can break. The suction cups were adequate and held the breeder on to the glass fairly well. They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. I ordered this and it came next day. It's a decent size for an internal breeder box.

"It is extremely small."

The suction cups hold well, and it has floating handle chambers as a backup. I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment. The plastic is much thicker than the last box I bought for the same price. I rated this 4 because it works great for the babies to live in for a bit. Definitely worth buying if you need to separate fish for any reason. There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box.
