"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.

"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.

"Works good."

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. Now he's chilling in quarantine until he heals. I don't see how they send used stuff out as new! I really liked the fact I could add an airline for water flow. I left it out and the babies were sneaking out through that hole.

  • WEAVERBIRD One Hole Aquarium Worm Catcher Aquarium Snail Leech Vivarium Pest Catch Trap Shrimp Worm Planaria Leech Catcher
  • Made of high quality crystal glass, high brightness, acid and alkali resistant, free from corrosion, flatness is good, no water ripples.
  • Planaria trap comes with 1 holes design, which is able to trap planaria efficiently to reduce planaria population in fish tank.
  • In order to remove these unpleasant organism, we can use this catch to remove plannaria without chemical or medication due to shrimp's sensitivity to these elements.
  • Trap/catches planaria, flat worms and leeches. Put in bait such as raw pork liver, dead fish, shrimp, meat, etc, then fill the trap with water and place it with holes facing down soil bed.
  • Instruction: Simply bait the trap and gently place it on top of the substrate, which would not allow any shrimp lets to be able to crawl in. Take out the trap next day and clear and wash the trip, and then repeat the steps.

"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.

Pssopp First Impressions

"Arrived on time."

There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box. He had room to still swim around and I didn't feel too guilty. Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin. I put three pregnant females in the box immediately. I currently have about 30 or so new babies in it. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. Apparently my purple Betta, Dragonfruit, did not get the memo.

Pssopp Final Thoughts

"My fishes will be happy!"

With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. That way the water still flows nicely in where mom is. Guppy fry didn't escape and they look happy. I also like that it goes in to the tank and not a hang on the outside type. Undeniably the best seller I've encountered. Still, everything else about the box is great! I ordered this and it came next day.

4. Bashsea Mad Rack

Bashsea MR11X22 First Impressions

"My own dumb fault."

For me, the geatest feature is that it floats and floats evenly. It works as it is designed to do and kept my fry safe. The little air tube connection on the side is a nice addition too. I ordered this and it came next day. I really like the design of this breeder box. I bought one to try it out, and it's been excellent. She doesn't seem very stressed, honestly, and likes to nap in the V's.

"It did the trick!"

I never knew how important this was until tank cleaning time! The breeder box has a decent size for isolating fish or dwarf shrimp. I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used. I tested both my tank and box water to find a big difference in Ammonia levels. We picked this up to use as a secondary QT box for our reef tank. This product is good for the price. Apparently my purple Betta, Dragonfruit, did not get the memo.

CPR Aquatic First Impressions

"A good purchase for."

We did have some get stuck in the edge of the partition. They are now all back together, living as peaceably as fish can. You have to be really careful with shrimp or they die. Future design improvement- less room for fry, more room for moms. The dimensions for the large size are approximately 8. Still, everything else about the box is great! Guppy fry didn't escape and they look happy.

The seller, Pawfly, was very nice about it. There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box. I own 7 of these isolation, breeding tanks. This product is excellent, works fabulously. Now he's chilling in quarantine until he heals. I bought one to try it out, and it's been excellent. Neither ended up having their babies in the breeder box.

Super strong suction cups- I have both the small and large. The breeder box has a decent size for isolating fish or dwarf shrimp.

"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.

"Very satisfied."

They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. I highly recommend this product, simple and easy to use! The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. Easily accommodates two Molly's, swords or platy fish. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. Worked great for me and my need to separate babies from the rest of the tank. We need to do mare to make sure bettas are treated better in pet stores, though.

"Works as it should."

Easily accommodates two Molly's, swords or platy fish. My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant. Neither ended up having their babies in the breeder box. I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open. 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.

"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.

It comes with 2 suction cups for when you want it to stay in place. I bought one to try it out, and it's been excellent. I don't see how they send used stuff out as new!
