"Great item!"

My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant. I tested both my tank and box water to find a big difference in Ammonia levels. I took out the part that separates the parent from the babies. They are now all back together, living as peaceably as fish can. Good quality and easy to take apart. So overall, this is a functioning product with little issues. I really liked the fact I could add an airline for water flow.

SPHTOEO Final Thoughts

"It is nice and clear."

The funnel tray is placed too high within the box. I don't see how they send used stuff out as new! The seller, Pawfly, was very nice about it. It would have been nice to have the suction cups. Still, everything else about the box is great! Suction cups do not hold the box up under its own weight. If you have a smaller tank, the Lee's may be the better choice.

"This is it."

I have two female Bettas and a Pleco in a filtered, heated 15-gallon tank. I didn't have the space for an external one. I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating. I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating. No trying to get mom back out while trying to keep babies in. It's a decent size for an internal breeder box. Petzilla is larger in size which reduces crowding as the babies grow.

Ailinda Final Thoughts

"The problem is."

The suction cups hold well, and it has floating handle chambers as a backup. This is the best floating breeder I have ever tried. Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin. The baby fish were able to swim from the bottom back to the time in the corners. I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating. The plastic is much thicker than the last box I bought for the same price. It is large enough for fish bigger than guppies.

"My fishes will be happy!"

I gave 4 stars becauses the mesh gets algae ridden pretty easily and stained green. It comes with 2 removable dividers and a removable fry drop slotted piece. Both are designed for free floating. We need to do mare to make sure bettas are treated better in pet stores, though. Fits nicely in a size 10 gallon tank. I have both the small and larger version. I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating.

"Works as it should."

Easily accommodates two Molly's, swords or platy fish. It's roomy and gives them space to move around. That way the water still flows nicely in where mom is. I also like that it goes in to the tank and not a hang on the outside type. Both are designed for free floating. It's roomy and gives them space to move around. Mine's been doing fine and very useful.

"Definitely recommend."

Less than 2 days and already received a replacement. Guppy fry didn't escape and they look happy. First one arrived used with gravel and a hole in it.

As with many plastics, if it isn't thick enough, then it can break.

"Very glad I bought it."

I really liked the fact I could add an airline for water flow. I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies. With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. I took the out of the tank and put them in mugs but it was not practical. 5 gallon, but he was struggling to swim. I put three pregnant females in the box immediately. There are slats in the bottom for the babies to escape to, to keep from being eaten.

"Good size!"

With everything out the tank seems to stay really clean. Tired of my guppies eating their fry and found this. My husband got me a few guppies that apparently had been pregnant. The dimensions for the large size are approximately 8. It's a decent size for an internal breeder box. I personally use these to introduce smaller fish into my community tanks. I have safe little fry and more to come!

"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. I've used several other floating breeders, and have always wished they were larger.

"Priced right."

So overall, this is a functioning product with little issues. I own 7 of these isolation, breeding tanks. For me, the geatest feature is that it floats and floats evenly. Suction cups do not hold the box up under its own weight. In the picture, the Petzilla Aquarium Fish Breeder box is on the right. With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. I got this so I can just put him in our 20-gallon hex with the angelfish.

I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies. Definitely worth buying if you need to separate fish for any reason. If that bottom piece fit better it would have been perfect. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes. Petzilla is larger in size which reduces crowding as the babies grow.

It's plastic but I have used it for several months and it’s help up well. Undeniably the best seller I've encountered. He's happy just sitting on his plant blowing bubbles. Not as sturdy as I thought but perfect for what I wanted. Hope you found this review helpful! I rated this 4 because it works great for the babies to live in for a bit.
