Pawfly First Impressions

"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.

Serenable First Impressions

"Clear plastic EZ to use."

This product is good for the price. He's happy just sitting on his plant blowing bubbles. Apparently my purple Betta, Dragonfruit, did not get the memo. I tested both my tank and box water to find a big difference in Ammonia levels. The seller, Pawfly, was very nice about it. That way the water still flows nicely in where mom is. I put the rainbar into it so now they can't escape.

"Would recommend."

It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. Perfect for holding my guppy babies. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. I bought one to try it out, and it's been excellent. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. Much easier to use and install than those tank partitions.

"It is perfect!"

The breeder box has a decent size for isolating fish or dwarf shrimp. Definitely worth buying if you need to separate fish for any reason. I've used several other floating breeders, and have always wished they were larger. 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. It's plastic but I have used it for several months and it’s help up well. I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green.

"Would recommend."

I've used several other floating breeders, and have always wished they were larger. With everything out the tank seems to stay really clean. Kind of a pain to remove the lid and feed the fry. They are impossible to reach once it it attached. The baby fish were able to swim from the bottom back to the time in the corners. This product is good for the price. I took out the part that separates the parent from the babies.

"Good plastic box."

They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. We had 2 pregnant fish in seperate halves with them seperated. Hope you found this review helpful! We need to do mare to make sure bettas are treated better in pet stores, though. Two days later and we have about 20 babies swimming in the bottom part of the box. I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open.

My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant. Worked great for me and my need to separate babies from the rest of the tank. I ordered this product for my Balloon mollie babies.

"Cheap but works good."

I rated this 4 because it works great for the babies to live in for a bit. I usually wait to write reviews but I am already impressed with this breeding box. Future design improvement- less room for fry, more room for moms. The suction cups hold well, and it has floating handle chambers as a backup. I rated this 4 because it works great for the babies to live in for a bit. That way the water still flows nicely in where mom is. They are now all back together, living as peaceably as fish can.

"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.

They are now all back together, living as peaceably as fish can. I actually put it in my 10 gallon baby fry tank. Kind of a pain to remove the lid and feed the fry.

In the picture, the Petzilla Aquarium Fish Breeder box is on the right. I got this so I can just put him in our 20-gallon hex with the angelfish. It would have been nice to have the suction cups.

I really liked the fact I could add an airline for water flow. I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again. I got the medium and it's mostly the width of a 10 gallon tank. I've used several other floating breeders, and have always wished they were larger. Fits nicely in a size 10 gallon tank. Not sure why some people are complaining the the separating tray floats. With the fry drop removed you get a really nice size little tank.

I got the medium and it's mostly the width of a 10 gallon tank. Worked great for me and my need to separate babies from the rest of the tank. Easily accommodates two Molly's, swords or platy fish. I can home one day and one was dead and all torn up from the sides. I actually put it in my 10 gallon baby fry tank. With the pump it's completely circulated and levels are normal. There are slats in the bottom for the babies to escape to, to keep from being eaten.

"Works like a charm."

When I came across this one that showed the actual inner dimensions, I was impressed. The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. I currently have about 30 or so new babies in it. One of them does not because you're supposed to add some sort of water rain bar. We caught momma the day before she had them and removed her after. I left it out and the babies were sneaking out through that hole. In the picture, the Petzilla Aquarium Fish Breeder box is on the right.
