"Priced right."

There are slats in the bottom for the babies to escape to, to keep from being eaten. The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again. Undeniably the best seller I've encountered. I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open. I put the rainbar into it so now they can't escape.

San Francisco Bay Brand 9012 Final Thoughts

"It is almost silent."

I also has a lid with snaps in place and has 2 slotted circles for dropping food in. I can home one day and one was dead and all torn up from the sides. I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green. The suction cups hold well, and it has floating handle chambers as a backup. I can home one day and one was dead and all torn up from the sides. I also like that it goes in to the tank and not a hang on the outside type. Still, everything else about the box is great!

"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.

"Only put about 30 gal."

They are now all back together, living as peaceably as fish can. I actually put it in my 10 gallon baby fry tank. Kind of a pain to remove the lid and feed the fry. This is the best floating breeder I have ever tried. He had room to still swim around and I didn't feel too guilty. I took out the part that separates the parent from the babies. The lid doesn't lock in place too snugly which make it easy to open.

"Awesome product."

I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again. The breeder box has a decent size for isolating fish or dwarf shrimp. You have to be really careful with shrimp or they die. This product is good for the price. For me, the geatest feature is that it floats and floats evenly. So overall, this is a functioning product with little issues. I have found one very unique use for it though.

They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. I actually put it in my 10 gallon baby fry tank. I bought one to try it out, and it's been excellent. My other one was fine but I brought her out so she wouldn't get hurt. I ordered this and it came next day. I have two female Bettas and a Pleco in a filtered, heated 15-gallon tank. Mine's been doing fine and very useful.

"Suction could be better."

Guppy fry didn't escape and they look happy. The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes. The dimensions for the large size are approximately 8. I really like that it has suction cups, and is very sturdy on the glass. I really like the design of this breeder box. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes.

"It is perfect!"

The breeder box has a decent size for isolating fish or dwarf shrimp. Definitely worth buying if you need to separate fish for any reason. I've used several other floating breeders, and have always wished they were larger. He had room to still swim around and I didn't feel too guilty. I currently have about 30 or so new babies in it. It's plastic but I have used it for several months and it’s help up well. I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green.

Took me a little while to figure it out but it worked for me. It comes with 2 removable dividers and a removable fry drop slotted piece. The suction cups hold well, and it has floating handle chambers as a backup. I actually put it in my 10 gallon baby fry tank. They are impossible to reach once it it attached.

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.

Good size and I like the separated chambers. One of them does not because you're supposed to add some sort of water rain bar. This product is good for the price.

"So the netting like."

They are impossible to reach once it it attached. Petzilla is larger in size which reduces crowding as the babies grow. I use this all the time for fish or new plants. I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green. Suction cups do not hold the box up under its own weight. I popped this together in a minute and it was in the tank in another minute. I also like that it goes in to the tank and not a hang on the outside type.

The little air tube connection on the side is a nice addition too. The baby fish were able to swim from the bottom back to the time in the corners. I never knew how important this was until tank cleaning time! I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating. I took the out of the tank and put them in mugs but it was not practical.

"Thank you so much!"

Especially if you plan to hold the babies there for a while. I ordered this product for my Balloon mollie babies. The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. The suction cups were adequate and held the breeder on to the glass fairly well. I am using several to sort through some fish I am breeding. I got this so I can just put him in our 20-gallon hex with the angelfish. I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green.
