BOYU First Impressions

"Imperfect design."

When I came across this one that showed the actual inner dimensions, I was impressed. Took me a little while to figure it out but it worked for me. Perfect for holding my guppy babies. I own 7 of these isolation, breeding tanks. I took out the part that separates the parent from the babies. I rated this 4 because it works great for the babies to live in for a bit. I usually wait to write reviews but I am already impressed with this breeding box.

BOYU Final Thoughts

"I did read reviews first."

No trying to get mom back out while trying to keep babies in. I actually put it in my 10 gallon baby fry tank. I didn't have the space for an external one. This product is excellent, works fabulously. No more babies swimming back up the cracks and getten eaten by mom. I had a 2 pregnant guppies and bought this for them. I have two female Bettas and a Pleco in a filtered, heated 15-gallon tank.

BOYU FH-102 First Impressions

"It's all very exciting."

I got the medium and it's mostly the width of a 10 gallon tank. You have to be really careful with shrimp or they die. I have both the small and larger version. I took out the part that separates the parent from the babies. In the picture, the Petzilla Aquarium Fish Breeder box is on the right. Still, everything else about the box is great! It's roomy and gives them space to move around.

BOYU FH-102 Final Thoughts

"Good size!"

Less than 2 days and already received a replacement. My kids observe the fish and write notes about health and behavior. I have safe little fry and more to come! Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin. Tired of my guppies eating their fry and found this. We need to do mare to make sure bettas are treated better in pet stores, though. It comes with 2 suction cups for when you want it to stay in place.

PUPUZAO First Impressions

"He's happy, so I'm happy."

Unlike the males, female Bettas should get along together. Good size and I like the separated chambers. I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used. I put the rainbar into it so now they can't escape. Guppy fry didn't escape and they look happy. With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. I have two female Bettas and a Pleco in a filtered, heated 15-gallon tank.

PUPUZAO Final Thoughts

"Very light!"

I tested both my tank and box water to find a big difference in Ammonia levels. I will update after the babies are born but so far this is great. I use this all the time for fish or new plants. It works as it is designed to do and kept my fry safe. Two days later and we have about 20 babies swimming in the bottom part of the box. Not as sturdy as I thought but perfect for what I wanted. Each of the four corners I thought had a cap.

Imagitarium First Impressions

"Would recommend."

I've used several other floating breeders, and have always wished they were larger. With everything out the tank seems to stay really clean. Kind of a pain to remove the lid and feed the fry. They are impossible to reach once it it attached. The baby fish were able to swim from the bottom back to the time in the corners. This product is good for the price. I took out the part that separates the parent from the babies.

"Good plastic box."

They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. We had 2 pregnant fish in seperate halves with them seperated. Hope you found this review helpful! We need to do mare to make sure bettas are treated better in pet stores, though. Two days later and we have about 20 babies swimming in the bottom part of the box. I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open.

YML H002 First Impressions

"This product is great."

It comes with 2 removable dividers and a removable fry drop slotted piece. I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating. Suction cups do not hold the box up under its own weight. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes. It would have been nice to have the suction cups. Mine's been doing fine and very useful. We picked this up to use as a secondary QT box for our reef tank.

"Just Kidding!"

It comes with 2 removable dividers and a removable fry drop slotted piece. The little air tube connection on the side is a nice addition too. Good quality and easy to take apart. There's only one issue with this unit. The seller, Pawfly, was very nice about it. The plastic is much thicker than the last box I bought for the same price. The net is harder to see through but not for the casual observer.

"Hope this is helpful."

The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. This product is excellent, works fabulously. Unlike the males, female Bettas should get along together. I really like the design of this breeder box. Both are designed for free floating. Super strong suction cups- I have both the small and large. The net is harder to see through but not for the casual observer.

"Just Kidding!"

With everything out the tank seems to stay really clean. I highly recommend this product, simple and easy to use! The tube for the bubbler is a nice touch. I never knew how important this was until tank cleaning time! Not as sturdy as I thought but perfect for what I wanted. It's a decent size for an internal breeder box. Fits nicely in a size 10 gallon tank.

Alfie Final Thoughts

"Over all pretty good."

As with many plastics, if it isn't thick enough, then it can break. Guppy fry didn't escape and they look happy. 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. My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant. Instead of catching babies, I simply leave the mom in the top piece. The plastic is much thicker than the last box I bought for the same price.

This is the best floating breeder I have ever tried. I can home one day and one was dead and all torn up from the sides. If that bottom piece fit better it would have been perfect. Good quality and easy to take apart. I never knew how important this was until tank cleaning time! My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant.

I really like the design of this breeder box. You have to be really careful with shrimp or they die. Apparently my purple Betta, Dragonfruit, did not get the memo. I ordered this and it came next day.

"Assembly was fine."

I ordered this product for my Balloon mollie babies. I really liked the fact I could add an airline for water flow. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. Not as sturdy as I thought but perfect for what I wanted. Not sure why some people are complaining the the separating tray floats. He's happy just sitting on his plant blowing bubbles. The baby fish were able to swim from the bottom back to the time in the corners.

"Great item!"

Super strong suction cups- I have both the small and large. Future design improvement- less room for fry, more room for moms. I really like that it has suction cups, and is very sturdy on the glass. Apparently my purple Betta, Dragonfruit, did not get the memo. It is large enough for fish bigger than guppies. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. This product is excellent, works fabulously.

Good size and I like the separated chambers. I have both the small and larger version. I currently have about 30 or so new babies in it. Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin. We did have some get stuck in the edge of the partition. I don't see how they send used stuff out as new!

"They held water well."

I personally use these to introduce smaller fish into my community tanks. With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. This product is good for the price. 5 gallon, but he was struggling to swim. He had room to still swim around and I didn't feel too guilty. I have two female Bettas and a Pleco in a filtered, heated 15-gallon tank. Perfect for holding my guppy babies.
