"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.

"It is awesome!"

The little air tube connection on the side is a nice addition too. The baby fish were able to swim from the bottom back to the time in the corners. I never knew how important this was until tank cleaning time! I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating. I took the out of the tank and put them in mugs but it was not practical. My kids observe the fish and write notes about health and behavior. I took out the part that separates the parent from the babies.

"Thank you so much!"

Especially if you plan to hold the babies there for a while. I ordered this product for my Balloon mollie babies. The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. The suction cups were adequate and held the breeder on to the glass fairly well. I am using several to sort through some fish I am breeding. I got this so I can just put him in our 20-gallon hex with the angelfish. I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green.

"I recommend this box."

With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. I really like the design of this breeder box. No more babies swimming back up the cracks and getten eaten by mom.

"Assembly was fine."

With the fry drop removed you get a really nice size little tank. So far, those have both held up, so the non-locking lid has not been an issue. I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating.

"The thing is awesome!"

I ordered this product for my Balloon mollie babies. I don't see how they send used stuff out as new! My other one was fine but I brought her out so she wouldn't get hurt. They are impossible to reach once it it attached. First one arrived used with gravel and a hole in it. It comes with 2 removable dividers and a removable fry drop slotted piece. This works better at protecting babies from mom than the one room nets.

"It is almost silent."

5 gallon, but he was struggling to swim. The lid doesn't lock in place too snugly which make it easy to open. He had room to still swim around and I didn't feel too guilty. My kids observe the fish and write notes about health and behavior. It's plastic but I have used it for several months and it’s help up well. I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open. If that bottom piece fit better it would have been perfect.

"The thing is awesome!"

So it IS possible for very small fry to slip through the slits. Instead of catching babies, I simply leave the mom in the top piece. I have used other breeder boxes and like this one the best. Not as sturdy as I thought but perfect for what I wanted. With the fry drop removed you get a really nice size little tank. Worked great for me and my need to separate babies from the rest of the tank. Tired of my guppies eating their fry and found this.

Penn-Plax AN2 Final Thoughts

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

Unlike the males, female Bettas should get along together. Easily accommodates two Molly's, swords or platy fish. They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. Especially if you plan to hold the babies there for a while. Kind of a pain to remove the lid and feed the fry. I put three pregnant females in the box immediately. Suction cups do not hold the box up under its own weight.

You have to be really careful with shrimp or they die. He had room to still swim around and I didn't feel too guilty. I currently have about 30 or so new babies in it.

"Great purchase!"

Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin. I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used. I really like the design of this breeder box. I personally use these to introduce smaller fish into my community tanks. They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. So overall, this is a functioning product with little issues. So far, those have both held up, so the non-locking lid has not been an issue.

So far, those have both held up, so the non-locking lid has not been an issue. I really like the design of this breeder box. We had 2 pregnant fish in seperate halves with them seperated. The tube for the bubbler is a nice touch. I personally use these to introduce smaller fish into my community tanks. I actually put it in my 10 gallon baby fry tank. We did have some get stuck in the edge of the partition.

It works as it is designed to do and kept my fry safe. I have used other breeder boxes and like this one the best. The net is harder to see through but not for the casual observer. I left it out and the babies were sneaking out through that hole.

"Great product!"

This keeps her area better airated and actually helps flow the babies out. It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. I use this all the time for fish or new plants. I also has a lid with snaps in place and has 2 slotted circles for dropping food in. My other one was fine but I brought her out so she wouldn't get hurt. I have noticed that with all they pieces in that food does not exit the bottom half. It would have been nice to have the suction cups.

With everything out the tank seems to stay really clean. We picked this up to use as a secondary QT box for our reef tank. I own 7 of these isolation, breeding tanks.

Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin. I have noticed that with all they pieces in that food does not exit the bottom half. Both are designed for free floating. 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.

"So it's a good size."

I really liked the fact I could add an airline for water flow. If you have a smaller tank, the Lee's may be the better choice. I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open. Not sure why some people are complaining the the separating tray floats. In the picture, the Petzilla Aquarium Fish Breeder box is on the right. I've used several other floating breeders, and have always wished they were larger. Lets in just enough new water to keep it clean, but not too much to have a current.
