"I'm very pleased with it."

They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. This product is excellent, works fabulously. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment. Super strong suction cups- I have both the small and large. He's happy just sitting on his plant blowing bubbles. Each of the four corners I thought had a cap. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier.

Lee's 10255 Final Thoughts

"The thing is awesome!"

I use this all the time for fish or new plants. No more babies swimming back up the cracks and getten eaten by mom. It works as it is designed to do and kept my fry safe. He had room to still swim around and I didn't feel too guilty. I bought one to try it out, and it's been excellent. Lets in just enough new water to keep it clean, but not too much to have a current. That way the water still flows nicely in where mom is.

"Very glad I bought it."

I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open. The baby fish were able to swim from the bottom back to the time in the corners. The lid doesn't lock in place too snugly which make it easy to open. I own 7 of these isolation, breeding tanks. I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green. There's only one issue with this unit. I got this so I can just put him in our 20-gallon hex with the angelfish.

Camidy 1450221/120852AM102US68 Final Thoughts

"Thank you so much!"

Unlike the males, female Bettas should get along together. There are slats in the bottom for the babies to escape to, to keep from being eaten. I have noticed that with all they pieces in that food does not exit the bottom half. I really liked the fact I could add an airline for water flow. Mine's been doing fine and very useful. Tired of my guppies eating their fry and found this. They are now all back together, living as peaceably as fish can.

"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.

"Glad I bought this."

I currently have about 30 or so new babies in it. Especially if you plan to hold the babies there for a while. I've used several other floating breeders, and have always wished they were larger. I really like the design of this breeder box. They are impossible to reach once it it attached. He's happy just sitting on his plant blowing bubbles. I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating.

"Overall I did like it."

It comes with 2 suction cups for when you want it to stay in place. I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating. I currently have about 30 or so new babies in it. I have both the small and larger version. Two days later and we have about 20 babies swimming in the bottom part of the box. We did have some get stuck in the edge of the partition. I ordered this product for my Balloon mollie babies.

"Every thing else is good."

Undeniably the best seller I've encountered. The plastic is much thicker than the last box I bought for the same price. I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open. The babies are now in the box without the middle divider piece. I don't see how they send used stuff out as new! 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.

Galapara Final Thoughts

"Flow is just a trickle."

The babies are now in the box without the middle divider piece. Petzilla is larger in size which reduces crowding as the babies grow. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes. Mine's been doing fine and very useful. First one arrived used with gravel and a hole in it. The plastic is much thicker than the last box I bought for the same price. The little air tube connection on the side is a nice addition too.

"Great external refugium."

Hope you found this review helpful! So overall, this is a functioning product with little issues. This works better at protecting babies from mom than the one room nets. It comes with 2 removable dividers and a removable fry drop slotted piece. With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. 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.

"He's about 3."

Unlike the males, female Bettas should get along together. The baby fish were able to swim from the bottom back to the time in the corners. Perfect for holding my guppy babies. It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. I've used several other floating breeders, and have always wished they were larger. I have both the small and larger version. If you have a smaller tank, the Lee's may be the better choice.

7. Flameer 6 Pcs Planaria Trap Glass Worm Catch Pen Tube Trapper - Clear, Three Holes

Flameer First Impressions

"It's sturdy so far."

I highly recommend this product, simple and easy to use! I bought one to try it out, and it's been excellent. This is my first breeder box so I cant really compare with other brands. So it IS possible for very small fry to slip through the slits. Not sure why some people are complaining the the separating tray floats. With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. I've used several other floating breeders, and have always wished they were larger.

"Every thing else is good."

The breeder box has a decent size for isolating fish or dwarf shrimp. It's roomy and gives them space to move around. My other one was fine but I brought her out so she wouldn't get hurt. I put three pregnant females in the box immediately. There are slats in the bottom for the babies to escape to, to keep from being eaten. I use this all the time for fish or new plants. I have noticed that with all they pieces in that food does not exit the bottom half.

"Works as expected."

So it IS possible for very small fry to slip through the slits. I rated this 4 because it works great for the babies to live in for a bit. Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin. I have safe little fry and more to come! Each of the four corners I thought had a cap. I have used other breeder boxes and like this one the best. I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green.

"Priced right."

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. I will update after the babies are born but so far this is great. It comes with 2 suction cups for when you want it to stay in place. For me, the geatest feature is that it floats and floats evenly. Future design improvement- less room for fry, more room for moms. That's why I took time to come back.

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

It would have been nice to have the suction cups. The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. My other one was fine but I brought her out so she wouldn't get hurt. There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box. Perfect for holding my guppy babies. I own 7 of these isolation, breeding tanks.

I took the out of the tank and put them in mugs but it was not practical. Neither ended up having their babies in the breeder box. I actually put it in my 10 gallon baby fry tank. We did have some get stuck in the edge of the partition. So it IS possible for very small fry to slip through the slits. The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. There's only one issue with this unit.

"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.
