"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.

"I love this little box."

The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. I tested both my tank and box water to find a big difference in Ammonia levels. That's why I took time to come back. I ordered this and it came next day. There's only one issue with this unit. I really liked the fact I could add an airline for water flow. Both are designed for free floating.

"It's sturdy so far."

With the fry drop removed you get a really nice size little tank. Worked great for me and my need to separate babies from the rest of the tank. You have to be really careful with shrimp or they die. We picked this up to use as a secondary QT box for our reef tank. She doesn't seem very stressed, honestly, and likes to nap in the V's. I didn't have the space for an external one. This product is good for the price.

"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.

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.

"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.

"I'm happy with this."

Lets in just enough new water to keep it clean, but not too much to have a current. Not sure why some people are complaining the the separating tray floats. My kids observe the fish and write notes about health and behavior. Breeder nets are available in many sizes including larger than both boxes. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. I have both the small and larger version. This product is excellent, works fabulously.

"It is extremely small."

Good size and I like the separated chambers. The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. Not as sturdy as I thought but perfect for what I wanted. I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again. When I came across this one that showed the actual inner dimensions, I was impressed. Each of the four corners I thought had a cap. No more babies swimming back up the cracks and getten eaten by mom.

"Arrived on time."

There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box. He had room to still swim around and I didn't feel too guilty. Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin. I put three pregnant females in the box immediately. I currently have about 30 or so new babies in it. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. Apparently my purple Betta, Dragonfruit, did not get the memo.

"My fishes will be happy!"

With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. That way the water still flows nicely in where mom is. Guppy fry didn't escape and they look happy. I also like that it goes in to the tank and not a hang on the outside type. Undeniably the best seller I've encountered. Still, everything else about the box is great! I ordered this and it came next day.

"I did read reviews first."

One of them does not because you're supposed to add some sort of water rain bar. With the pump it's completely circulated and levels are normal. I took out the part that separates the parent from the babies. Instead of catching babies, I simply leave the mom in the top piece. I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies. Especially if you plan to hold the babies there for a while. Guppy fry didn't escape and they look happy.

I own 7 of these isolation, breeding tanks. The babies are now in the box without the middle divider piece. We did have some get stuck in the edge of the partition.
