Penn-Plax AN2 First Impressions

"The thing is awesome!"

So it IS possible for very small fry to slip through the slits. Instead of catching babies, I simply leave the mom in the top piece. I have used other breeder boxes and like this one the best. Not as sturdy as I thought but perfect for what I wanted. 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. Tired of my guppies eating their fry and found this.

Penn-Plax AN2 Final Thoughts

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

Unlike the males, female Bettas should get along together. Easily accommodates two Molly's, swords or platy fish. They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. Especially if you plan to hold the babies there for a while. Kind of a pain to remove the lid and feed the fry. I put three pregnant females in the box immediately. Suction cups do not hold the box up under its own weight.

"Great purchase!"

My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant. This is my first breeder box so I cant really compare with other brands. I ordered this and it came next day. Tired of my guppies eating their fry and found this. I put the rainbar into it so now they can't escape. 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.

"I really like it."

It is large enough for fish bigger than guppies. The lid doesn't lock in place too snugly which make it easy to open. So it IS possible for very small fry to slip through the slits. This product is excellent, works fabulously. I bought one to try it out, and it's been excellent. I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again. I will update after the babies are born but so far this is great.

Bashsea MRP11X11 First Impressions

"It's sturdy so far."

That way the water still flows nicely in where mom is. Suction cups do not hold the box up under its own weight. I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open. If that bottom piece fit better it would have been perfect. There's only one issue with this unit. Tired of my guppies eating their fry and found this. There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box.

"It is perfect!"

Much easier to use and install than those tank partitions. They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. I had a 2 pregnant guppies and bought this for them. So it IS possible for very small fry to slip through the slits. I got the medium and it's mostly the width of a 10 gallon tank. That way the water still flows nicely in where mom is.

"It did the trick!"

She doesn't seem very stressed, honestly, and likes to nap in the V's. The babies are now in the box without the middle divider piece. If you have a smaller tank, the Lee's may be the better choice. It's roomy and gives them space to move around. Tired of my guppies eating their fry and found this. Not sure why some people are complaining the the separating tray floats. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place.

No more babies swimming back up the cracks and getten eaten by mom. With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. I put the rainbar into it so now they can't escape. When I came across this one that showed the actual inner dimensions, I was impressed. With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. We need to do mare to make sure bettas are treated better in pet stores, though. The seller, Pawfly, was very nice about it.

I have safe little fry and more to come! Not sure why some people are complaining the the separating tray floats. With everything out the tank seems to stay really clean. I own 7 of these isolation, breeding tanks. We had 2 pregnant fish in seperate halves with them seperated. Super strong suction cups- I have both the small and large. We caught momma the day before she had them and removed her after.

"Glad I bought this."

Hope you found this review helpful! With the fry drop removed you get a really nice size little tank. Still, everything else about the box is great! Mine's been doing fine and very useful. I rated this 4 because it works great for the babies to live in for a bit. I took out the part that separates the parent from the babies. My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant.

She-love First Impressions

"I recommend this box."

For me, the geatest feature is that it floats and floats evenly. Hope you found this review helpful! The plastic is much thicker than the last box I bought for the same price. I tested both my tank and box water to find a big difference in Ammonia levels. My kids observe the fish and write notes about health and behavior. The suction cups hold well, and it has floating handle chambers as a backup. No trying to get mom back out while trying to keep babies in.
