"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.

"Arrived on time."

This works better at protecting babies from mom than the one room nets. It's roomy and gives them space to move around. Each of the four corners I thought had a cap. I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used. He's happy just sitting on his plant blowing bubbles. 5 gallon, but he was struggling to swim. I really like the design of this breeder box.

  • Simply bait the trap and gently place it on top of the substrate, which would not allow any shrimp lets to be able to crawl in. Take out the trap next day and clear and wash the trip, and then repeat the steps.

"I liked this breeder box."

Not sure why some people are complaining the the separating tray floats. I've used several other floating breeders, and have always wished they were larger. With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open. The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. It works as it is designed to do and kept my fry safe. This product is excellent, works fabulously.

"Clear plastic EZ to use."

Future design improvement- less room for fry, more room for moms. I put three pregnant females in the box immediately. Not sure why some people are complaining the the separating tray floats. I popped this together in a minute and it was in the tank in another minute. We picked this up to use as a secondary QT box for our reef tank. I got the medium and it's mostly the width of a 10 gallon tank. I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used.

"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.

"No, really, I'm kidding."

Much easier to use and install than those tank partitions. Still, everything else about the box is great! This is the best floating breeder I have ever tried. Two days later and we have about 20 babies swimming in the bottom part of the box. I really like that it has suction cups, and is very sturdy on the glass. It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. There's only one issue with this unit.

"Keeps fish contained."

I personally use these to introduce smaller fish into my community tanks. The tube for the bubbler is a nice touch. This product is excellent, works fabulously. Each of the four corners I thought had a cap. They are now all back together, living as peaceably as fish can. The babies are now in the box without the middle divider piece. I have used other breeder boxes and like this one the best.

"Would highly recommend."

Instead of catching babies, I simply leave the mom in the top piece. Breeder nets are available in many sizes including larger than both boxes. Not sure why some people are complaining the the separating tray floats. Perfect for holding my guppy babies. We need to do mare to make sure bettas are treated better in pet stores, though. I have two female Bettas and a Pleco in a filtered, heated 15-gallon tank. It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric.

"Glad I bought this."

Hope you found this review helpful! With the fry drop removed you get a really nice size little tank. Still, everything else about the box is great! Mine's been doing fine and very useful. I rated this 4 because it works great for the babies to live in for a bit. I took out the part that separates the parent from the babies. My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant.

We need to do mare to make sure bettas are treated better in pet stores, though. She doesn't seem very stressed, honestly, and likes to nap in the V's. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment. Apparently my purple Betta, Dragonfruit, did not get the memo.

"Great item!"

Petzilla is larger in size which reduces crowding as the babies grow. Guppy fry didn't escape and they look happy. I will update after the babies are born but so far this is great. No trying to get mom back out while trying to keep babies in. You have to be really careful with shrimp or they die. I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies. The funnel tray is placed too high within the box.

I have noticed that with all they pieces in that food does not exit the bottom half. When I came across this one that showed the actual inner dimensions, I was impressed. No more babies swimming back up the cracks and getten eaten by mom. I use this all the time for fish or new plants. Good size and I like the separated chambers. I ordered this and it came next day. I bought one to try it out, and it's been excellent.
