"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.

"So the netting like."

They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. I actually put it in my 10 gallon baby fry tank. I bought one to try it out, and it's been excellent. My other one was fine but I brought her out so she wouldn't get hurt. I ordered this and it came next day. I have two female Bettas and a Pleco in a filtered, heated 15-gallon tank. Mine's been doing fine and very useful.

MEIMEI Final Thoughts

"Suction could be better."

Guppy fry didn't escape and they look happy. The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes. The dimensions for the large size are approximately 8. I really like that it has suction cups, and is very sturdy on the glass. I really like the design of this breeder box.

"I really like it."

We need to do mare to make sure bettas are treated better in pet stores, though. She doesn't seem very stressed, honestly, and likes to nap in the V's. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment. Apparently my purple Betta, Dragonfruit, did not get the memo.

"Great item!"

Petzilla is larger in size which reduces crowding as the babies grow. Guppy fry didn't escape and they look happy. I will update after the babies are born but so far this is great. No trying to get mom back out while trying to keep babies in. You have to be really careful with shrimp or they die. I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies. The funnel tray is placed too high within the box.

"Suction cups are good."

The plastic is much thicker than the last box I bought for the same price. If that bottom piece fit better it would have been perfect. I took out the part that separates the parent from the babies. One of them does not because you're supposed to add some sort of water rain bar. I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again. I put three pregnant females in the box immediately. They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes.

YOFAN First Impressions

"Suction cups are good."

The tube for the bubbler is a nice touch. It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. The net is harder to see through but not for the casual observer. With the fry drop removed you get a really nice size little tank. I bought one to try it out, and it's been excellent. That's why I took time to come back. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier.

YOFAN Final Thoughts

"Priced right."

Suction cups do not hold the box up under its own weight. This is my first breeder box so I cant really compare with other brands. I usually wait to write reviews but I am already impressed with this breeding box. I personally use these to introduce smaller fish into my community tanks. I have both the small and larger version. The little air tube connection on the side is a nice addition too. I got this so I can just put him in our 20-gallon hex with the angelfish.

"Suction cups are good."

I've used several other floating breeders, and have always wished they were larger. This product is excellent, works fabulously. Not as sturdy as I thought but perfect for what I wanted. Mine's been doing fine and very useful. He had room to still swim around and I didn't feel too guilty. I actually put it in my 10 gallon baby fry tank. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place.

I really like that it has suction cups, and is very sturdy on the glass. This works better at protecting babies from mom than the one room nets. Much easier to use and install than those tank partitions. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment. I put the rainbar into it so now they can't escape.

"Easy to install."

I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used. Instead of catching babies, I simply leave the mom in the top piece. Breeder nets are available in many sizes including larger than both boxes. I rated this 4 because it works great for the babies to live in for a bit. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. The baby fish were able to swim from the bottom back to the time in the corners. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier.

"My fishes will be happy!"

With the pump it's completely circulated and levels are normal. I got this so I can just put him in our 20-gallon hex with the angelfish. With everything out the tank seems to stay really clean. Breeder nets are available in many sizes including larger than both boxes. The babies are now in the box without the middle divider piece. Unlike the males, female Bettas should get along together. I really like the design of this breeder box.

"I'm very pleased with it."

The seller, Pawfly, was very nice about it. It comes with 2 removable dividers and a removable fry drop slotted piece. I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green. It's roomy and gives them space to move around. The dimensions for the large size are approximately 8. Less than 2 days and already received a replacement. Perfect for holding my guppy babies.

You have to be really careful with shrimp or they die. He had room to still swim around and I didn't feel too guilty. I currently have about 30 or so new babies in it.

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.

"It does work."

Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin. There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box. Fits nicely in a size 10 gallon tank. One of them does not because you're supposed to add some sort of water rain bar. It comes with 2 removable dividers and a removable fry drop slotted piece. Apparently my purple Betta, Dragonfruit, did not get the memo. That's why I took time to come back.
