"Clear plastic EZ to use."

Future design improvement- less room for fry, more room for moms. I put three pregnant females in the box immediately. Not sure why some people are complaining the the separating tray floats. I popped this together in a minute and it was in the tank in another minute. We picked this up to use as a secondary QT box for our reef tank. I got the medium and it's mostly the width of a 10 gallon tank. I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used.

Pawfly Final Thoughts

"Great design."

Unlike the males, female Bettas should get along together. Neither ended up having their babies in the breeder box. Unlike the males, female Bettas should get along together. This product is good for the price. This keeps her area better airated and actually helps flow the babies out. I am using several to sort through some fish I am breeding. It would have been nice to have the suction cups.

"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.

Underwater Treasures 4450 First Impressions

"Great design."

I have used other breeder boxes and like this one the best. Took me a little while to figure it out but it worked for me. I have both the small and larger version. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes. Good size and I like the separated chambers. We caught momma the day before she had them and removed her after. It is large enough for fish bigger than guppies.

Underwater Treasures 4450 Final Thoughts

"Priced right."

I popped this together in a minute and it was in the tank in another minute. It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. Instead of catching babies, I simply leave the mom in the top piece. I really liked the fact I could add an airline for water flow. Future design improvement- less room for fry, more room for moms. I got this so I can just put him in our 20-gallon hex with the angelfish. 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. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. This is the best floating breeder I have ever tried. Kind of a pain to remove the lid and feed the fry.

PUPUZAO Final Thoughts

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

My other one was fine but I brought her out so she wouldn't get hurt. The breeder box has a decent size for isolating fish or dwarf shrimp. I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again. I will update after the babies are born but so far this is great. Definitely worth buying if you need to separate fish for any reason. I put three pregnant females in the box immediately. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment.

Kesoto First Impressions

"Great design."

I don't see how they send used stuff out as new! That's why I took time to come back. Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin.

"Suction cups are good."

I tested both my tank and box water to find a big difference in Ammonia levels. No trying to get mom back out while trying to keep babies in. I popped this together in a minute and it was in the tank in another minute. Lets in just enough new water to keep it clean, but not too much to have a current. It works as it is designed to do and kept my fry safe. I took the out of the tank and put them in mugs but it was not practical. There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box.

"Buy better suction cups."

The baby fish were able to swim from the bottom back to the time in the corners. When I came across this one that showed the actual inner dimensions, I was impressed. It would have been nice to have the suction cups. I really like that it has suction cups, and is very sturdy on the glass. First one arrived used with gravel and a hole in it. I also like that it goes in to the tank and not a hang on the outside type. They are now all back together, living as peaceably as fish can.

"Works ok for me."

Worked great for me and my need to separate babies from the rest of the tank. This is my first breeder box so I cant really compare with other brands. I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies. There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box. Perfect for holding my guppy babies. Hope you found this review helpful! It is large enough for fish bigger than guppies.

"Glad I bought this."

It is large enough for fish bigger than guppies. 5 gallon, but he was struggling to swim. She doesn't seem very stressed, honestly, and likes to nap in the V's. So it IS possible for very small fry to slip through the slits. Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin. I personally use these to introduce smaller fish into my community tanks. Not as sturdy as I thought but perfect for what I wanted.

My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant. My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant. The net is harder to see through but not for the casual observer.

"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.
