User Ratings: 62 6

Hidom First Impressions

"Good product."

Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin. I highly recommend this product, simple and easy to use! No more babies swimming back up the cracks and getten eaten by mom. The babies are now in the box without the middle divider piece. I can home one day and one was dead and all torn up from the sides. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment. The funnel tray is placed too high within the box.

Hidom Final Thoughts

"Overall I did like it."

The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. I bought one to try it out, and it's been excellent. Neither ended up having their babies in the breeder box. My kids observe the fish and write notes about health and behavior. Neither ended up having their babies in the breeder box. I rated this 4 because it works great for the babies to live in for a bit. Tired of my guppies eating their fry and found this.

2. Hidom Fish Aquarium Hatchery Floating Breeding And Parenting Box

User Ratings: 47 16

Hidom First Impressions

"Very easy to assemble."

With the fry drop removed you get a really nice size little tank. I took the out of the tank and put them in mugs but it was not practical. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes. Two days later and we have about 20 babies swimming in the bottom part of the box. I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. I really liked the fact I could add an airline for water flow.

Hidom Final Thoughts

"Over all pretty good."

If that bottom piece fit better it would have been perfect. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. It's roomy and gives them space to move around. I also like that it goes in to the tank and not a hang on the outside type. It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. This is the best floating breeder I have ever tried. That's why I took time to come back.

3. Hidom Large Fish Aquarium Hatchery Floating Breeding And Parenting Box - Lenght 205Mm

User Ratings: 60 6

Hidom First Impressions

"This is not a small box."

Lets in just enough new water to keep it clean, but not too much to have a current. I left it out and the babies were sneaking out through that hole. The net is harder to see through but not for the casual observer. The little air tube connection on the side is a nice addition too. I put the rainbar into it so now they can't escape. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. We picked this up to use as a secondary QT box for our reef tank.

Hidom Final Thoughts

"It does work."

Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin. There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box. Fits nicely in a size 10 gallon tank. One of them does not because you're supposed to add some sort of water rain bar. It comes with 2 removable dividers and a removable fry drop slotted piece. Apparently my purple Betta, Dragonfruit, did not get the memo. That's why I took time to come back.

"This product is great."

Super strong suction cups- I have both the small and large. The breeder box has a decent size for isolating fish or dwarf shrimp. I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green. She doesn't seem very stressed, honestly, and likes to nap in the V's. Super strong suction cups- I have both the small and large. For me, the geatest feature is that it floats and floats evenly. The lid doesn't lock in place too snugly which make it easy to open.

"Works like a charm."

I usually wait to write reviews but I am already impressed with this breeding box. He's happy just sitting on his plant blowing bubbles. So overall, this is a functioning product with little issues. The little air tube connection on the side is a nice addition too. I have two female Bettas and a Pleco in a filtered, heated 15-gallon tank. With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. We caught momma the day before she had them and removed her after.

"Thank you so much!"

It's a decent size for an internal breeder box. I ordered this and it came next day. This keeps her area better airated and actually helps flow the babies out. With the pump it's completely circulated and levels are normal. No more babies swimming back up the cracks and getten eaten by mom. With everything out the tank seems to stay really clean. The suction cups were adequate and held the breeder on to the glass fairly well.

"I did read reviews first."

I own 7 of these isolation, breeding tanks. You have to be really careful with shrimp or they die. I tested both my tank and box water to find a big difference in Ammonia levels. I took the out of the tank and put them in mugs but it was not practical. I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies. Apparently my purple Betta, Dragonfruit, did not get the memo. With everything out the tank seems to stay really clean.

"It is extremely small."

The suction cups hold well, and it has floating handle chambers as a backup. I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment. The plastic is much thicker than the last box I bought for the same price. I rated this 4 because it works great for the babies to live in for a bit. 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.

WEAVERBIRD Final Thoughts

"Arrived on time."

Easily accommodates two Molly's, swords or platy fish. I put three pregnant females in the box immediately. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. 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. I highly recommend this product, simple and easy to use! When I came across this one that showed the actual inner dimensions, I was impressed.

"A good purchase for."

I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies. Definitely worth buying if you need to separate fish for any reason. If that bottom piece fit better it would have been perfect. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes. Petzilla is larger in size which reduces crowding as the babies grow. The dimensions for the large size are approximately 8. This product is good for the price.

"Buy better suction cups."

The baby fish were able to swim from the bottom back to the time in the corners. When I came across this one that showed the actual inner dimensions, I was impressed. It would have been nice to have the suction cups. I really like that it has suction cups, and is very sturdy on the glass. First one arrived used with gravel and a hole in it. I also like that it goes in to the tank and not a hang on the outside type. They are now all back together, living as peaceably as fish can.

"Works ok for me."

Worked great for me and my need to separate babies from the rest of the tank. This is my first breeder box so I cant really compare with other brands. I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies. There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box. Perfect for holding my guppy babies. Hope you found this review helpful! It is large enough for fish bigger than guppies.

"This is not a small box."

It comes with 2 removable dividers and a removable fry drop slotted piece. Instead of catching babies, I simply leave the mom in the top piece. I will update after the babies are born but so far this is great. I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies. I've used several other floating breeders, and have always wished they were larger. I currently have about 30 or so new babies in it. Two days later and we have about 20 babies swimming in the bottom part of the box.
