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.

2. AquaTop ATP Plnt Anchors 10pc

AquaTop PA-10 First Impressions

"Good product."

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.

AquaTop PA-10 Final Thoughts

"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.

U.P. Aqua D-632-EX First Impressions

"Flow is just a trickle."

It is large enough for fish bigger than guppies. I usually wait to write reviews but I am already impressed with this breeding box. It comes with 2 suction cups for when you want it to stay in place. The babies are now in the box without the middle divider piece. We did have some get stuck in the edge of the partition. If you have a smaller tank, the Lee's may be the better choice. There's only one issue with this unit.

U.P. Aqua D-632-EX Final Thoughts

"Will return."

Worked great for me and my need to separate babies from the rest of the tank. If that bottom piece fit better it would have been perfect. It is large enough for fish bigger than guppies. Unlike the males, female Bettas should get along together. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. I have found one very unique use for it though.

"Very glad I bought it."

I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open. The baby fish were able to swim from the bottom back to the time in the corners. The lid doesn't lock in place too snugly which make it easy to open. I own 7 of these isolation, breeding tanks. I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green. There's only one issue with this unit. I got this so I can just put him in our 20-gallon hex with the angelfish.

"Thank you so much!"

Unlike the males, female Bettas should get along together. There are slats in the bottom for the babies to escape to, to keep from being eaten. I have noticed that with all they pieces in that food does not exit the bottom half. I really liked the fact I could add an airline for water flow. Mine's been doing fine and very useful. Tired of my guppies eating their fry and found this. They are now all back together, living as peaceably as fish can.

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

I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open. He's happy just sitting on his plant blowing bubbles. 5 gallon, but he was struggling to swim. If you have a smaller tank, the Lee's may be the better choice. With the fry drop removed you get a really nice size little tank. I left it out and the babies were sneaking out through that hole. My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant.

Trixie 8049 Final Thoughts

"Great product."

I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used. I left it out and the babies were sneaking out through that hole. I really like that it has suction cups, and is very sturdy on the glass. I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again. I never knew how important this was until tank cleaning time! With everything out the tank seems to stay really clean. The funnel tray is placed too high within the box.

"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. There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box. I popped this together in a minute and it was in the tank in another minute. No trying to get mom back out while trying to keep babies in. It comes with 2 suction cups for when you want it to stay in place.

"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.

"It is nice and clear."

The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. I don't see how they send used stuff out as new! The seller, Pawfly, was very nice about it. It would have been nice to have the suction cups. Still, everything else about the box is great! Suction cups do not hold the box up under its own weight. If you have a smaller tank, the Lee's may be the better choice.

"Over all pretty good."

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. So far, those have both held up, so the non-locking lid has not been an issue. I also like that it goes in to the tank and not a hang on the outside type. I got this so I can just put him in our 20-gallon hex with the angelfish. The breeder box has a decent size for isolating fish or dwarf shrimp. It's plastic but I have used it for several months and it’s help up well.

  • SAFE HOUSE FOR YOUR FISH: The fish hatchery isolation box works wonderfully for preventing adult fish attack so as to improve the survival rate of baby fish. The W-shaped divider in the middle allows the new born fry to fall to the bottom chamber away from mother to safety. It also doubles as a safe-house for wounded fish or to segregate aggressive fish from the community
  • DOUBLE LAYER COMBINATION: The fish aquarium hatchery box features innovative double layer isolation design with two separate areas for expectant fish and segregated bottom compartments that safely collect and protect falling fry. The tiny side and bottom vents ensure optimum water circulation to ensure healthy growth of newborn fishes
  • PRACTICAL AND CONVENIENT: Made of durable acrylic material with crystal like transparency, the fish hatching incubator allows you to observe the mother fish and baby fishes easily and freely. You can feed the fishes through the two holes on the top cover without removing it so as to prevent fishes from getting out of the breeder box
  • MULTIPLE USES: The aquarium breeder box works wonderfully for isolating aggressive fish, injured fish, small fish, shrimp and other marine fishes, best suited with live-bearing viviparous fishes such as guppies, platties, mollies and swordtails. The versatile incubator box can also be used for displaying betta (Siamese fighting) fish
  • EASY INSTALLATION: The package comes with strong rubber suckers for the fish hatchery isolation box to attach firmly to the side of aquarium, both convenient and space-saving. With the flexible floating design, you can adjust the position of isolation box wherever you want

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.

"Would highly recommend."

I currently have about 30 or so new babies in it. Fits nicely in a size 10 gallon tank. My kids observe the fish and write notes about health and behavior. It works as it is designed to do and kept my fry safe. I have used other breeder boxes and like this one the best. The net is harder to see through but not for the casual observer. I left it out and the babies were sneaking out through that hole.

This keeps her area better airated and actually helps flow the babies out. It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. I use this all the time for fish or new plants. I also has a lid with snaps in place and has 2 slotted circles for dropping food in. My other one was fine but I brought her out so she wouldn't get hurt. I have noticed that with all they pieces in that food does not exit the bottom half. It would have been nice to have the suction cups.

"It's nice an big."

I have two female Bettas and a Pleco in a filtered, heated 15-gallon tank. Instead of catching babies, I simply leave the mom in the top piece. I will update after the babies are born but so far this is great. The tube for the bubbler is a nice touch. Kind of a pain to remove the lid and feed the fry. The seller, Pawfly, was very nice about it. He's happy just sitting on his plant blowing bubbles.

"So it's a good size."

I have both the small and larger version. The breeder box has a decent size for isolating fish or dwarf shrimp. So it IS possible for very small fry to slip through the slits. This product is excellent, works fabulously. I have found one very unique use for it though. I have used other breeder boxes and like this one the best. With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females.
