"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.

"Priced right."

There are slats in the bottom for the babies to escape to, to keep from being eaten. The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again. Undeniably the best seller I've encountered. I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open. I put the rainbar into it so now they can't escape.

"It is almost silent."

I also has a lid with snaps in place and has 2 slotted circles for dropping food in. I can home one day and one was dead and all torn up from the sides. I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green. The suction cups hold well, and it has floating handle chambers as a backup.

"The thing is awesome!"

I didn't have the space for an external one. I bought one to try it out, and it's been excellent. There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box. Fits nicely in a size 10 gallon tank. I really like that it has suction cups, and is very sturdy on the glass. I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open. I took out the part that separates the parent from the babies.

"So the netting like."

I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again. With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. It's a decent size for an internal breeder box. Hope you found this review helpful! I put the rainbar into it so now they can't escape. Mine's been doing fine and very useful. They are impossible to reach once it it attached.

"Tried him in a 3."

Less than 2 days and already received a replacement. This keeps her area better airated and actually helps flow the babies out. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. I put three pregnant females in the box immediately. I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating. The breeder box has a decent size for isolating fish or dwarf shrimp. Both are designed for free floating.

"Overall I did like it."

I don't see how they send used stuff out as new! Good size and I like the separated chambers. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment. She doesn't seem very stressed, honestly, and likes to nap in the V's. The little air tube connection on the side is a nice addition too. Tired of my guppies eating their fry and found this. We did have some get stuck in the edge of the partition.

"The large is VERY SMALL."

It's plastic but I have used it for several months and it’s help up well. I took the out of the tank and put them in mugs but it was not practical. When I came across this one that showed the actual inner dimensions, I was impressed. As with many plastics, if it isn't thick enough, then it can break. I have two female Bettas and a Pleco in a filtered, heated 15-gallon tank. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes. No trying to get mom back out while trying to keep babies in.

"I'm happy with this."

I took the out of the tank and put them in mugs but it was not practical. I had a 2 pregnant guppies and bought this for them. The seller, Pawfly, was very nice about it. So overall, this is a functioning product with little issues. This works better at protecting babies from mom than the one room nets. With the fry drop removed you get a really nice size little tank. It is large enough for fish bigger than guppies.

"Suction cups are good."

Still, everything else about the box is great! Suction cups do not hold the box up under its own weight. I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green. Apparently my purple Betta, Dragonfruit, did not get the memo. I really like that it has suction cups, and is very sturdy on the glass. Now he's chilling in quarantine until he heals. I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again.

"So the netting like."

Undeniably the best seller I've encountered. That way the water still flows nicely in where mom is. We caught momma the day before she had them and removed her after. Each of the four corners I thought had a cap. I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open. 5 gallon, but he was struggling to swim. Super strong suction cups- I have both the small and large.

"Imperfect design."

I use this all the time for fish or new plants. I've used several other floating breeders, and have always wished they were larger. I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used. It comes with 2 removable dividers and a removable fry drop slotted piece. I am using several to sort through some fish I am breeding. Mine's been doing fine and very useful. I really liked the fact I could add an airline for water flow.

We had 2 pregnant fish in seperate halves with them seperated. The breeder box has a decent size for isolating fish or dwarf shrimp. With the fry drop removed you get a really nice size little tank. No more babies swimming back up the cracks and getten eaten by mom. So overall, this is a functioning product with little issues. I left it out and the babies were sneaking out through that hole. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes.

"My own dumb fault."

You have to be really careful with shrimp or they die. In the picture, the Petzilla Aquarium Fish Breeder box is on the right. The suction cups hold well, and it has floating handle chambers as a backup. Both are designed for free floating. This product is excellent, works fabulously. My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant. It's a decent size for an internal breeder box.
