"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.

Imagitarium Final Thoughts

"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.

"It is awesome!"

The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. I own 7 of these isolation, breeding tanks. Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin. Undeniably the best seller I've encountered. I highly recommend this product, simple and easy to use! It would have been nice to have the suction cups. My kids observe the fish and write notes about health and behavior.

"Mines in the mail ."

It's roomy and gives them space to move around. It comes with 2 removable dividers and a removable fry drop slotted piece. It's a decent size for an internal breeder box. I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used. Guppy fry didn't escape and they look happy. I bought one to try it out, and it's been excellent. 5 gallon, but he was struggling to swim.

"Great item!"

My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant. I tested both my tank and box water to find a big difference in Ammonia levels. I took out the part that separates the parent from the babies. They are now all back together, living as peaceably as fish can. Good quality and easy to take apart. So overall, this is a functioning product with little issues. I really liked the fact I could add an airline for water flow.

"It is nice and clear."

The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. I don't see how they send used stuff out as new! The seller, Pawfly, was very nice about it. It would have been nice to have the suction cups. Still, everything else about the box is great! Suction cups do not hold the box up under its own weight. If you have a smaller tank, the Lee's may be the better choice.

Forgun First Impressions

"Priced right."

She doesn't seem very stressed, honestly, and likes to nap in the V's. They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. Lets in just enough new water to keep it clean, but not too much to have a current. I will update after the babies are born but so far this is great. It is large enough for fish bigger than guppies. They are impossible to reach once it it attached. This product is excellent, works fabulously.

"Good plastic box."

Neither ended up having their babies in the breeder box. Instead of catching babies, I simply leave the mom in the top piece. I tested both my tank and box water to find a big difference in Ammonia levels. It works as it is designed to do and kept my fry safe. Undeniably the best seller I've encountered. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies.

"It was a great purchase!"

With the fry drop removed you get a really nice size little tank. I really like the design of this breeder box. When I came across this one that showed the actual inner dimensions, I was impressed. I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again. As with many plastics, if it isn't thick enough, then it can break. Still, everything else about the box is great!

"This is it."

I have two female Bettas and a Pleco in a filtered, heated 15-gallon tank. I didn't have the space for an external one. I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating. I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating. No trying to get mom back out while trying to keep babies in. It's a decent size for an internal breeder box. Petzilla is larger in size which reduces crowding as the babies grow.

"The problem is."

The suction cups hold well, and it has floating handle chambers as a backup. This is the best floating breeder I have ever tried. Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin. The baby fish were able to swim from the bottom back to the time in the corners. I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating. The plastic is much thicker than the last box I bought for the same price. It is large enough for fish bigger than guppies.

"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.

"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.

"I'm very pleased with it."

I took the out of the tank and put them in mugs but it was not practical. It is large enough for fish bigger than guppies. As with many plastics, if it isn't thick enough, then it can break. I got this so I can just put him in our 20-gallon hex with the angelfish. The lid doesn't lock in place too snugly which make it easy to open. This product is excellent, works fabulously. We had 2 pregnant fish in seperate halves with them seperated.

"Mines in the mail ."

The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. Tired of my guppies eating their fry and found this. I never knew how important this was until tank cleaning time! I left it out and the babies were sneaking out through that hole. In the picture, the Petzilla Aquarium Fish Breeder box is on the right. We picked this up to use as a secondary QT box for our reef tank. I have used other breeder boxes and like this one the best.

We did have some get stuck in the edge of the partition. Super strong suction cups- I have both the small and large. I usually wait to write reviews but I am already impressed with this breeding box. Hope you found this review helpful! I also has a lid with snaps in place and has 2 slotted circles for dropping food in. Good size and I like the separated chambers. I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open.
