"Hope this is helpful."

This product is excellent, works fabulously. I am using several to sort through some fish I am breeding. I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating. Perfect for holding my guppy babies. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment. They are now all back together, living as peaceably as fish can. I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used.

Marina 10942 Final Thoughts

"Works like a charm."

We had 2 pregnant fish in seperate halves with them seperated. I have noticed that with all they pieces in that food does not exit the bottom half. I got the medium and it's mostly the width of a 10 gallon tank. The breeder box has a decent size for isolating fish or dwarf shrimp. I have both the small and larger version. I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used. I also like that it goes in to the tank and not a hang on the outside type.

2. Alfie Pet - Kaia Hang-on Nursery Fish Tank with Isolation Breeding Hatchery

User Ratings: 74 13

Alfie First Impressions

"I would buy again!"

The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. Good quality and easy to take apart. The tube for the bubbler is a nice touch. My other one was fine but I brought her out so she wouldn't get hurt. She doesn't seem very stressed, honestly, and likes to nap in the V's. If you have a smaller tank, the Lee's may be the better choice.

Alfie Final Thoughts

"Arrived on time."

I really liked the fact I could add an airline for water flow. We did have some get stuck in the edge of the partition. You have to be really careful with shrimp or they die. Lets in just enough new water to keep it clean, but not too much to have a current. The net is harder to see through but not for the casual observer. I had a 2 pregnant guppies and bought this for them. We need to do mare to make sure bettas are treated better in pet stores, though.

"Glad I bought this."

Hope you found this review helpful! With the fry drop removed you get a really nice size little tank. Still, everything else about the box is great! Mine's been doing fine and very useful. I rated this 4 because it works great for the babies to live in for a bit. I took out the part that separates the parent from the babies. My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant.

I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. Super strong suction cups- I have both the small and large.

WEAVERBIRD Final Thoughts

"Would recommend."

The lid doesn't lock in place too snugly which make it easy to open. With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. I have two female Bettas and a Pleco in a filtered, heated 15-gallon tank. There are slats in the bottom for the babies to escape to, to keep from being eaten. No trying to get mom back out while trying to keep babies in. I took out the part that separates the parent from the babies. This product is good for the price.

"Overall I did like it."

My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant. Worked great for me and my need to separate babies from the rest of the tank. I ordered this product for my Balloon mollie babies. I've used several other floating breeders, and have always wished they were larger. He's happy just sitting on his plant blowing bubbles. So overall, this is a functioning product with little issues. Lets in just enough new water to keep it clean, but not too much to have a current.

After arresting device placed within the bait box and set the cap submerged underwater and then tighten the lid to prevent air bubbles into the impact of heavy water; 3. Recommendation 1 hour into the trap arrest is visible after victories await the first water treatment planarian, avoid resting too long continuously in the tank, thereby causing water to avoid

"Cheap but works good."

I rated this 4 because it works great for the babies to live in for a bit. I usually wait to write reviews but I am already impressed with this breeding box. Future design improvement- less room for fry, more room for moms. The suction cups hold well, and it has floating handle chambers as a backup. I rated this 4 because it works great for the babies to live in for a bit. That way the water still flows nicely in where mom is. They are now all back together, living as peaceably as fish can.
