"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.

"This product works great!"

The tube for the bubbler is a nice touch. I left it out and the babies were sneaking out through that hole. I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating. Tired of my guppies eating their fry and found this. Still, everything else about the box is great! The baby fish were able to swim from the bottom back to the time in the corners. I put the rainbar into it so now they can't escape.

"Suction cups are good."

Took me a little while to figure it out but it worked for me. This works better at protecting babies from mom than the one room nets. The little air tube connection on the side is a nice addition too. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. I can home one day and one was dead and all torn up from the sides. Each of the four corners I thought had a cap. The net is harder to see through but not for the casual observer.

3. WEAVERBIRD Aquarium Vivarium Fish Tank Catcher for Worm Pest

WEAVERBIRD First Impressions

"Great design."

It would have been nice to have the suction cups. With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open. This keeps her area better airated and actually helps flow the babies out. I usually wait to write reviews but I am already impressed with this breeding box. Mine's been doing fine and very useful. You have to be really careful with shrimp or they die.

  • WEAVERBIRD Aquarium Vivarium Fish Tank Catcher for Worm Pest
  • Made of high quality crystal glass, high brightness
  • Trap comes with 2 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 water and place it with holes facing down soil bed.
  • Instruction: Simply bait 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.

WEAVERBIRD Final Thoughts

"It is nice and clear."

It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. I never knew how important this was until tank cleaning time! The suction cups hold well, and it has floating handle chambers as a backup. Unlike the males, female Bettas should get along together. Mine's been doing fine and very useful. Worked great for me and my need to separate babies from the rest of the tank. Petzilla is larger in size which reduces crowding as the babies grow.

So far, those have both held up, so the non-locking lid has not been an issue. There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box.

It's plastic but I have used it for several months and it’s help up well.

Tiberham Final Thoughts

"Overall I did like it."

As with many plastics, if it isn't thick enough, then it can break. The suction cups were adequate and held the breeder on to the glass fairly well. They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. I ordered this and it came next day. It's a decent size for an internal breeder box.

"Every thing else is good."

I own 7 of these isolation, breeding tanks. The lid doesn't lock in place too snugly which make it easy to open. 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. As with many plastics, if it isn't thick enough, then it can break. The plastic is much thicker than the last box I bought for the same price. Two days later and we have about 20 babies swimming in the bottom part of the box.

"Definitely recommend."

Especially if you plan to hold the babies there for a while. For me, the geatest feature is that it floats and floats evenly. In the picture, the Petzilla Aquarium Fish Breeder box is on the right. As with many plastics, if it isn't thick enough, then it can break. I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again. Kind of a pain to remove the lid and feed the fry. I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open.

Not as sturdy as I thought but perfect for what I wanted. We did have some get stuck in the edge of the partition. Hope you found this review helpful!

Petzilla is larger in size which reduces crowding as the babies grow.

"Very easy to assemble."

With the fry drop removed you get a really nice size little tank. I took the out of the tank and put them in mugs but it was not practical. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes. Two days later and we have about 20 babies swimming in the bottom part of the box. I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. I really liked the fact I could add an airline for water flow.

If that bottom piece fit better it would have been perfect. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. It's roomy and gives them space to move around. I also like that it goes in to the tank and not a hang on the outside type. It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. This is the best floating breeder I have ever tried. That's why I took time to come back.

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.

"The large is VERY SMALL."

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. When I came across this one that showed the actual inner dimensions, I was impressed. As with many plastics, if it isn't thick enough, then it can break. I have two female Bettas and a Pleco in a filtered, heated 15-gallon tank. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes. No trying to get mom back out while trying to keep babies in.
