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.

Penn-Plax NB1 First Impressions

"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.

"So it's a good size."

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.

4. Flameer Acrylic Aquarium Fish Tank Hatchery Incubator Breeding Box

Flameer First Impressions

"The thing is awesome!"

The plastic is much thicker than the last box I bought for the same price. If you have a smaller tank, the Lee's may be the better choice. It comes with 2 suction cups for when you want it to stay in place. Super strong suction cups- I have both the small and large. I actually put it in my 10 gallon baby fry tank. They are now all back together, living as peaceably as fish can. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes.

"It is nice and clear."

Kind of a pain to remove the lid and feed the fry. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. Especially if you plan to hold the babies there for a while. Good size and I like the separated chambers. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes. Guppy fry didn't escape and they look happy. So overall, this is a functioning product with little issues.

"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.

"Priced right."

I popped this together in a minute and it was in the tank in another minute. It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. 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. Future design improvement- less room for fry, more room for moms. I got this so I can just put him in our 20-gallon hex with the angelfish. So far, those have both held up, so the non-locking lid has not been an issue.

"Would buy again."

I also like that it goes in to the tank and not a hang on the outside type. So overall, this is a functioning product with little issues. I put the rainbar into it so now they can't escape. The dimensions for the large size are approximately 8. I never knew how important this was until tank cleaning time! I have safe little fry and more to come! She doesn't seem very stressed, honestly, and likes to nap in the V's.

"That's bad."

Guppy fry didn't escape and they look happy. Not as sturdy as I thought but perfect for what I wanted. It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. The breeder box has a decent size for isolating fish or dwarf shrimp. Still, everything else about the box is great! The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. I ordered this and it came next day.

Forgun First Impressions

"Priced right."

She doesn't seem very stressed, honestly, and likes to nap in the V's. They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. Lets in just enough new water to keep it clean, but not too much to have a current. I will update after the babies are born but so far this is great. It is large enough for fish bigger than guppies. They are impossible to reach once it it attached. This product is excellent, works fabulously.

"Good plastic box."

Neither ended up having their babies in the breeder box. Instead of catching babies, I simply leave the mom in the top piece. I tested both my tank and box water to find a big difference in Ammonia levels. It works as it is designed to do and kept my fry safe. Undeniably the best seller I've encountered. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies.

"That's bad."

I got the medium and it's mostly the width of a 10 gallon tank. Still, everything else about the box is great! This product is good for the price. The tube for the bubbler is a nice touch. No trying to get mom back out while trying to keep babies in. 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.

"Very light!"

I put the rainbar into it so now they can't escape. I got this so I can just put him in our 20-gallon hex with the angelfish. The lid doesn't lock in place too snugly which make it easy to open. I didn't have the space for an external one. I got the medium and it's mostly the width of a 10 gallon tank. I had a 2 pregnant guppies and bought this for them. The baby fish were able to swim from the bottom back to the time in the corners.

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.

"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.

"Hope this is helpful."

It comes with 2 removable dividers and a removable fry drop slotted piece. If that bottom piece fit better it would have been perfect. I don't see how they send used stuff out as new! It's roomy and gives them space to move around. Not as sturdy as I thought but perfect for what I wanted. 5 gallon, but he was struggling to swim. Not as sturdy as I thought but perfect for what I wanted.

"So this is what I did."

There are slats in the bottom for the babies to escape to, to keep from being eaten. Tired of my guppies eating their fry and found this. I have safe little fry and more to come! I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open. It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment. It's a decent size for an internal breeder box.
