"It did the trick!"

He had room to still swim around and I didn't feel too guilty. The babies are now in the box without the middle divider piece. With the pump it's completely circulated and levels are normal. The dimensions for the large size are approximately 8. Both are designed for free floating. I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again. The tube for the bubbler is a nice touch.

Finnex HB-211 Final Thoughts

"Only put about 30 gal."

I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used. The seller, Pawfly, was very nice about it. Two days later and we have about 20 babies swimming in the bottom part of the box. The seller, Pawfly, was very nice about it. Instead of catching babies, I simply leave the mom in the top piece. So it IS possible for very small fry to slip through the slits. I really like the design of this breeder box.

"This product is great!"

I have two female Bettas and a Pleco in a filtered, heated 15-gallon tank. That's why I took time to come back. The seller, Pawfly, was very nice about it. 5 gallon, but he was struggling to swim. It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. I usually wait to write reviews but I am already impressed with this breeding box. Good quality and easy to take apart.

Senzeal SZLUS-0566 Final Thoughts

"Every thing else is good."

5 gallon, but he was struggling to swim. I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green. The seller, Pawfly, was very nice about it. I highly recommend this product, simple and easy to use! Unlike the males, female Bettas should get along together. I have noticed that with all they pieces in that food does not exit the bottom half. I have safe little fry and more to come!

Super strong suction cups- I have both the small and large. I never knew how important this was until tank cleaning time! I also like that it goes in to the tank and not a hang on the outside type.

WEAVERBIRD Final Thoughts

"Suction cups are good."

I've used several other floating breeders, and have always wished they were larger. This product is excellent, works fabulously. Not as sturdy as I thought but perfect for what I wanted. Mine's been doing fine and very useful. He had room to still swim around and I didn't feel too guilty. I actually put it in my 10 gallon baby fry tank. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place.

Mironey First Impressions

"I did read reviews first."

I've used several other floating breeders, and have always wished they were larger. I didn't have the space for an external one. I have found one very unique use for it though. I rated this 4 because it works great for the babies to live in for a bit. I have two female Bettas and a Pleco in a filtered, heated 15-gallon tank. I left it out and the babies were sneaking out through that hole. Future design improvement- less room for fry, more room for moms.

"Suction cups are good."

As with many plastics, if it isn't thick enough, then it can break. If that bottom piece fit better it would have been perfect. I usually wait to write reviews but I am already impressed with this breeding box. Worked great for me and my need to separate babies from the rest of the tank. Much easier to use and install than those tank partitions. We picked this up to use as a secondary QT box for our reef tank. This keeps her area better airated and actually helps flow the babies out.

Bashsea First Impressions

"Works like a charm."

It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. There's only one issue with this unit. The lid doesn't lock in place too snugly which make it easy to open. Neither ended up having their babies in the breeder box. As with many plastics, if it isn't thick enough, then it can break. As with many plastics, if it isn't thick enough, then it can break.

"The large is VERY SMALL."

Good size and I like the separated chambers. No more babies swimming back up the cracks and getten eaten by mom. She doesn't seem very stressed, honestly, and likes to nap in the V's. Neither ended up having their babies in the breeder box. I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used. Worked great for me and my need to separate babies from the rest of the tank. I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies.

"Awesome product."

I also has a lid with snaps in place and has 2 slotted circles for dropping food in. The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. I usually wait to write reviews but I am already impressed with this breeding box. Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin. My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant. The tube for the bubbler is a nice touch. I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again.

I really like that it has suction cups, and is very sturdy on the glass. Two days later and we have about 20 babies swimming in the bottom part of the box. I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again. No trying to get mom back out while trying to keep babies in. We picked this up to use as a secondary QT box for our reef tank. Apparently my purple Betta, Dragonfruit, did not get the memo. With the fry drop removed you get a really nice size little tank.

PIVBY First Impressions

"It is awesome!"

I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used. One of them does not because you're supposed to add some sort of water rain bar. Took me a little while to figure it out but it worked for me. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. As with many plastics, if it isn't thick enough, then it can break. They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. I ordered this and it came next day.

"Works ok for me."

I got the medium and it's mostly the width of a 10 gallon tank. Apparently my purple Betta, Dragonfruit, did not get the memo. I use this all the time for fish or new plants. I popped this together in a minute and it was in the tank in another minute. Tired of my guppies eating their fry and found this. The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. Both are designed for free floating.

She-love First Impressions

"I recommend this box."

For me, the geatest feature is that it floats and floats evenly. Hope you found this review helpful! The plastic is much thicker than the last box I bought for the same price. I tested both my tank and box water to find a big difference in Ammonia levels. My kids observe the fish and write notes about health and behavior. The suction cups hold well, and it has floating handle chambers as a backup. No trying to get mom back out while trying to keep babies in.

"Assembly was fine."

I will update after the babies are born but so far this is great. I tested both my tank and box water to find a big difference in Ammonia levels. So it IS possible for very small fry to slip through the slits. When I came across this one that showed the actual inner dimensions, I was impressed. I ordered this product for my Balloon mollie babies. I have noticed that with all they pieces in that food does not exit the bottom half. It's a decent size for an internal breeder box.

"It is nice and clear."

Perfect for holding my guppy babies. I ordered this product for my Balloon mollie babies. Neither ended up having their babies in the breeder box. It is large enough for fish bigger than guppies. I have noticed that with all they pieces in that food does not exit the bottom half. If that bottom piece fit better it would have been perfect. It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric.

"I really like it."

That way the water still flows nicely in where mom is. So far, those have both held up, so the non-locking lid has not been an issue. Kind of a pain to remove the lid and feed the fry. Undeniably the best seller I've encountered. I highly recommend this product, simple and easy to use! I currently have about 30 or so new babies in it. I ordered this and it came next day.

"This product works great!"

The tube for the bubbler is a nice touch. I left it out and the babies were sneaking out through that hole. I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating. Tired of my guppies eating their fry and found this. Still, everything else about the box is great! The baby fish were able to swim from the bottom back to the time in the corners. I put the rainbar into it so now they can't escape.

"Suction cups are good."

Took me a little while to figure it out but it worked for me. This works better at protecting babies from mom than the one room nets. The little air tube connection on the side is a nice addition too. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. I can home one day and one was dead and all torn up from the sides. Each of the four corners I thought had a cap. The net is harder to see through but not for the casual observer.
