SPHTOEO First Impressions

"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.

Underwater Treasures 4450 First Impressions

"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.

Underwater Treasures 4450 Final Thoughts

"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.

Kesoto First Impressions

"Great design."

I don't see how they send used stuff out as new! That's why I took time to come back. Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin. There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box. I popped this together in a minute and it was in the tank in another minute. No trying to get mom back out while trying to keep babies in. It comes with 2 suction cups for when you want it to stay in place.

Kesoto Final Thoughts

"Suction cups are good."

I tested both my tank and box water to find a big difference in Ammonia levels. No trying to get mom back out while trying to keep babies in. I popped this together in a minute and it was in the tank in another minute. Lets in just enough new water to keep it clean, but not too much to have a current. It works as it is designed to do and kept my fry safe. I took the out of the tank and put them in mugs but it was not practical. There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box.

Petzilla PBI-2 First Impressions

"Mines in the mail ."

I have found one very unique use for it though. There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box. As with many plastics, if it isn't thick enough, then it can break. I put three pregnant females in the box immediately. My other one was fine but I brought her out so she wouldn't get hurt. I have noticed that with all they pieces in that food does not exit the bottom half. I personally use these to introduce smaller fish into my community tanks.

Petzilla PBI-2 Final Thoughts

"Good plastic box."

It works as it is designed to do and kept my fry safe. I have two female Bettas and a Pleco in a filtered, heated 15-gallon tank. If that bottom piece fit better it would have been perfect. With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. Lets in just enough new water to keep it clean, but not too much to have a current. They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. This product is good for the price.

Finnex HB-211 First Impressions

"It did the trick!"

He had room to still swim around and I didn't feel too guilty. The babies are now in the box without the middle divider piece. With the pump it's completely circulated and levels are normal. The dimensions for the large size are approximately 8. Both are designed for free floating. I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again. The tube for the bubbler is a nice touch.

Finnex HB-211 Final Thoughts

"Only put about 30 gal."

I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used. The seller, Pawfly, was very nice about it. Two days later and we have about 20 babies swimming in the bottom part of the box. The seller, Pawfly, was very nice about it. Instead of catching babies, I simply leave the mom in the top piece. So it IS possible for very small fry to slip through the slits. I really like the design of this breeder box.

"Works as it should."

With the fry drop removed you get a really nice size little tank. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes. I have found one very unique use for it though. I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating. I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies. The babies are now in the box without the middle divider piece. Neither ended up having their babies in the breeder box.

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.

9. Baoblaze Assorted Aquarium Stainless Steel CO2 Diffuser Carbon Dioxide Bubble Reactor

Baoblaze First Impressions

"It's nice an big."

This keeps her area better airated and actually helps flow the babies out. I never knew how important this was until tank cleaning time! The dividers only work with the fry drop in place. You have to be really careful with shrimp or they die. I own 7 of these isolation, breeding tanks. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment. Guppy fry didn't escape and they look happy.

Future design improvement- less room for fry, more room for moms. With the pump it's completely circulated and levels are normal. I actually put it in my 10 gallon baby fry tank. My other one was fine but I brought her out so she wouldn't get hurt. 5 gallon, but he was struggling to swim. I own 7 of these isolation, breeding tanks. She doesn't seem very stressed, honestly, and likes to nap in the V's.

Saim E4YKSZ09523 First Impressions

"This product is great."

When I came across this one that showed the actual inner dimensions, I was impressed. This works better at protecting babies from mom than the one room nets. We need to do mare to make sure bettas are treated better in pet stores, though. It's unsightly with big uneven seams and extra fabric. He had room to still swim around and I didn't feel too guilty. Undeniably the best seller I've encountered. This product is good for the price.

Perfect for holding my guppy babies. This is the best floating breeder I have ever tried. I didn't have the space for an external one. The dimensions for the large size are approximately 8. I tested both my tank and box water to find a big difference in Ammonia levels. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment. I have safe little fry and more to come!
