"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.

"Works as expected."

That way the water still flows nicely in where mom is. One of them does not because you're supposed to add some sort of water rain bar. I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used. I have found one very unique use for it though. I really liked the fact I could add an airline for water flow. I put the rainbar into it so now they can't escape. It comes with 2 suction cups for when you want it to stay in place.

"I love this little box."

Hope you found this review helpful! My kids observe the fish and write notes about health and behavior. This product is good for the price. Suction cups do not hold the box up under its own weight. I am using several to sort through some fish I am breeding. This is the best floating breeder I have ever tried. No trying to get mom back out while trying to keep babies in.

Petzilla PBI-1 Final Thoughts

"Works like a charm."

The tube for the bubbler is a nice touch. It would have been nice to have the suction cups. Tired of my guppies eating their fry and found this. Instead of catching babies, I simply leave the mom in the top piece. I have found one very unique use for it though. I personally use these to introduce smaller fish into my community tanks. There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box.

"Lots of uses."

Suction cups do not hold the box up under its own weight. This product is excellent, works fabulously. Kind of a pain to remove the lid and feed the fry. I left it out and the babies were sneaking out through that hole. One of them does not because you're supposed to add some sort of water rain bar. I really liked the fact I could add an airline for water flow. The suction cups hold well, and it has floating handle chambers as a backup.

"Cheap but works good."

Took me a little while to figure it out but it worked for me. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. This is the best floating breeder I have ever tried. I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies. Less than 2 days and already received a replacement. This is the best floating breeder I have ever tried.

"It is extremely small."

The suction cups hold well, and it has floating handle chambers as a backup. I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment. The plastic is much thicker than the last box I bought for the same price. I rated this 4 because it works great for the babies to live in for a bit. Definitely worth buying if you need to separate fish for any reason. There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box.

WEAVERBIRD Final Thoughts

"Arrived on time."

Easily accommodates two Molly's, swords or platy fish. I put three pregnant females in the box immediately. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. I personally use these to introduce smaller fish into my community tanks. With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. I highly recommend this product, simple and easy to use! When I came across this one that showed the actual inner dimensions, I was impressed.

The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green. I don't see how they send used stuff out as new! The baby fish were able to swim from the bottom back to the time in the corners. We did have some get stuck in the edge of the partition. It would have been nice to have the suction cups. Good size and I like the separated chambers.

"Priced right."

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. Both are designed for free floating. That way the water still flows nicely in where mom is. Kind of a pain to remove the lid and feed the fry. I usually wait to write reviews but I am already impressed with this breeding box. The lid doesn't lock in place too snugly which make it easy to open.

  • POPETPOP Fish Breeding Box - Acrylic Fish Isolation Box Aquarium Hatchery Incubator with Suction Cups for Baby Fishes Shrimp Guppy Clownfish Aggressive Fish

"Great design."

I rated this 4 because it works great for the babies to live in for a bit. In the picture, the Petzilla Aquarium Fish Breeder box is on the right. I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies. My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant. Not sure why some people are complaining the the separating tray floats. Easily accommodates two Molly's, swords or platy fish. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment.

"Very light!"

I tested both my tank and box water to find a big difference in Ammonia levels. I will update after the babies are born but so far this is great. I use this all the time for fish or new plants. It works as it is designed to do and kept my fry safe. Two days later and we have about 20 babies swimming in the bottom part of the box. Not as sturdy as I thought but perfect for what I wanted. Each of the four corners I thought had a cap.

I will update after the babies are born but so far this is great. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment. The net is harder to see through but not for the casual observer. This is my first breeder box so I cant really compare with other brands. My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant. The suction cups were adequate and held the breeder on to the glass fairly well. Not sure why some people are complaining the the separating tray floats.

"Works really well."

My other one was fine but I brought her out so she wouldn't get hurt. Instead of catching babies, I simply leave the mom in the top piece. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment. I took out the part that separates the parent from the babies. It's plastic but I have used it for several months and it’s help up well. I took the out of the tank and put them in mugs but it was not practical. If you have a smaller tank, the Lee's may be the better choice.
