"It is awesome!"

I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used. One of them does not because you're supposed to add some sort of water rain bar. Took me a little while to figure it out but it worked for me. The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. As with many plastics, if it isn't thick enough, then it can break. They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. I ordered this and it came next day.

PIVBY Final Thoughts

"Works ok for me."

I got the medium and it's mostly the width of a 10 gallon tank. Apparently my purple Betta, Dragonfruit, did not get the memo. I use this all the time for fish or new plants. I popped this together in a minute and it was in the tank in another minute. Tired of my guppies eating their fry and found this. The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. Both are designed for free floating.

"Thank you!"

I have found one very unique use for it though. I really liked the fact I could add an airline for water flow. That's why I took time to come back. I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again. I use this all the time for fish or new plants. I am using several to sort through some fish I am breeding. I rated this 4 because it works great for the babies to live in for a bit.

"This is not a small box."

It comes with 2 removable dividers and a removable fry drop slotted piece. 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. I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies. I've used several other floating breeders, and have always wished they were larger. I currently have about 30 or so new babies in it. Two days later and we have about 20 babies swimming in the bottom part of the box.

That way the water still flows nicely in where mom is. One of them does not because you're supposed to add some sort of water rain bar. I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used. I have found one very unique use for it though. I really liked the fact I could add an airline for water flow. I put the rainbar into it so now they can't escape. It comes with 2 suction cups for when you want it to stay in place.

"I love this little box."

Hope you found this review helpful! My kids observe the fish and write notes about health and behavior. This product is good for the price. Suction cups do not hold the box up under its own weight. I am using several to sort through some fish I am breeding. This is the best floating breeder I have ever tried. No trying to get mom back out while trying to keep babies in.

"Glad I bought this."

It is large enough for fish bigger than guppies. 5 gallon, but he was struggling to swim. She doesn't seem very stressed, honestly, and likes to nap in the V's. So it IS possible for very small fry to slip through the slits. Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin. I personally use these to introduce smaller fish into my community tanks. Not as sturdy as I thought but perfect for what I wanted.

"Clear plastic EZ to use."

It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. Unlike the males, female Bettas should get along together. I took the out of the tank and put them in mugs but it was not practical. Not as sturdy as I thought but perfect for what I wanted. I left it out and the babies were sneaking out through that hole. I popped this together in a minute and it was in the tank in another minute. Both are designed for free floating.

There's only one issue with this unit. With everything out the tank seems to stay really clean. This product is good for the price. They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes.

"Mines in the mail ."

They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. The dimensions for the large size are approximately 8. My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant. The lid doesn't lock in place too snugly which make it easy to open. Perfect for holding my guppy babies. The plastic is much thicker than the last box I bought for the same price.

"Very light!"

Worked great for me and my need to separate babies from the rest of the tank. When I came across this one that showed the actual inner dimensions, I was impressed. I have two female Bettas and a Pleco in a filtered, heated 15-gallon tank. I currently have about 30 or so new babies in it. For me, the geatest feature is that it floats and floats evenly. Good size and I like the separated chambers. With the pump it's completely circulated and levels are normal.

"Flow is just a trickle."

She doesn't seem very stressed, honestly, and likes to nap in the V's. If that bottom piece fit better it would have been perfect. I put three pregnant females in the box immediately. With everything out the tank seems to stay really clean. Especially if you plan to hold the babies there for a while. Perfect for holding my guppy babies. I will update after the babies are born but so far this is great.

Fits nicely in a size 10 gallon tank. This keeps her area better airated and actually helps flow the babies out. Kind of a pain to remove the lid and feed the fry.

"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.

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.
