Generic First Impressions

"I liked this breeder box."

I put three pregnant females in the box immediately. I had a 2 pregnant guppies and bought this for them. The baby fish were able to swim from the bottom back to the time in the corners. I don't see how they send used stuff out as new! 5 gallon, but he was struggling to swim. I got this so I can just put him in our 20-gallon hex with the angelfish. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment.

Generic Final Thoughts

"Great product."

This product is excellent, works fabulously. We need to do mare to make sure bettas are treated better in pet stores, though. The suction cups were adequate and held the breeder on to the glass fairly well. In the picture, the Petzilla Aquarium Fish Breeder box is on the right. One of them does not because you're supposed to add some sort of water rain bar. Not sure why some people are complaining the the separating tray floats. I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies.

2. Live Betta Halfmoon Plakat Fish

Generic First Impressions

"It's nice an big."

This works better at protecting babies from mom than the one room nets. I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green. For me, the geatest feature is that it floats and floats evenly. Mine's been doing fine and very useful. 5 gallon, but he was struggling to swim. We had 2 pregnant fish in seperate halves with them seperated. In the picture, the Petzilla Aquarium Fish Breeder box is on the right.

"Cheap but works good."

Two days later and we have about 20 babies swimming in the bottom part of the box. Tired of my guppies eating their fry and found this. We had 2 pregnant fish in seperate halves with them seperated. I usually wait to write reviews but I am already impressed with this breeding box. I tested both my tank and box water to find a big difference in Ammonia levels. As with many plastics, if it isn't thick enough, then it can break. Suction cups do not hold the box up under its own weight.

CPR Aquatic First Impressions

"A good purchase for."

We did have some get stuck in the edge of the partition. They are now all back together, living as peaceably as fish can. You have to be really careful with shrimp or they die. Future design improvement- less room for fry, more room for moms. The dimensions for the large size are approximately 8. Still, everything else about the box is great! Guppy fry didn't escape and they look happy.

"Very light!"

The seller, Pawfly, was very nice about it. There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box. I own 7 of these isolation, breeding tanks. This product is excellent, works fabulously. Now he's chilling in quarantine until he heals. I bought one to try it out, and it's been excellent. Neither ended up having their babies in the breeder box.

Guppy fry didn't escape and they look happy. I put three pregnant females in the box immediately. I don't see how they send used stuff out as new!

"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.

"Great design."

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.

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.

"Tried him in a 3."

I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes. One of them does not because you're supposed to add some sort of water rain bar. The lid doesn't lock in place too snugly which make it easy to open. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes.

I've used several other floating breeders, and have always wished they were larger. When I came across this one that showed the actual inner dimensions, I was impressed.

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.
