PIVBY First Impressions

"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.

"Every thing else is good."

Much easier to use and install than those tank partitions. Breeder nets are available in many sizes including larger than both boxes. Still, everything else about the box is great! I didn't have the space for an external one. One of them does not because you're supposed to add some sort of water rain bar. I left it out and the babies were sneaking out through that hole. He had room to still swim around and I didn't feel too guilty.

"Buy better suction cups."

I own 7 of these isolation, breeding tanks. The babies are now in the box without the middle divider piece. We did have some get stuck in the edge of the partition. I actually put it in my 10 gallon baby fry tank. With the pump it's completely circulated and levels are normal. I am using several to sort through some fish I am breeding. She doesn't seem very stressed, honestly, and likes to nap in the V's.

"Wash before use."

He's happy just sitting on his plant blowing bubbles. We need to do mare to make sure bettas are treated better in pet stores, though. It works as it is designed to do and kept my fry safe. This works better at protecting babies from mom than the one room nets. They seemed scared at first but calmed down after about 30 minutes. It would have been nice to have the suction cups. I bought one to try it out, and it's been excellent.

Joyfay Final Thoughts

"Second was fine."

This keeps her area better airated and actually helps flow the babies out. Neither ended up having their babies in the breeder box. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. The suction cups were adequate and held the breeder on to the glass fairly well. Not sure why some people are complaining the the separating tray floats. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes. The funnel tray is placed too high within the box.

Hikig First Impressions

"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!

There is a grate that sits about an inch above the bottom of the box. He had room to still swim around and I didn't feel too guilty. Worked well, water and air flow is minimum due to slots being very thin. I put three pregnant females in the box immediately. I currently have about 30 or so new babies in it.

"My fishes will be happy!"

With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. That way the water still flows nicely in where mom is. Guppy fry didn't escape and they look happy. I also like that it goes in to the tank and not a hang on the outside type. Undeniably the best seller I've encountered. Still, everything else about the box is great! I ordered this and it came next day.

"Works as expected."

I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes. Not sure why some people are complaining the the separating tray floats. I never knew how important this was until tank cleaning time! I will update after the babies are born but so far this is great. I'll put the bag from the pet shop in it and cut it open. First one arrived used with gravel and a hole in it. That's why I took time to come back.

"The price."

The tube for the bubbler is a nice touch. I actually put it in my 10 gallon baby fry tank. Future design improvement- less room for fry, more room for moms. Not sure why some people are complaining the the separating tray floats. I really like the design of this breeder box. This works better at protecting babies from mom than the one room nets. With the fry drop removed you get a really nice size little tank.

"It was a great purchase!"

I'm using it as a nursery for baby guppies. The Petzilla and Lee's make observations easier. One of them does not because you're supposed to add some sort of water rain bar. Lets in just enough new water to keep it clean, but not too much to have a current. Not sure why some people are complaining the the separating tray floats. The lid doesn't lock in place too snugly which make it easy to open. The suction cups were adequate and held the breeder on to the glass fairly well.

"Good size!"

I left it out and the babies were sneaking out through that hole. She doesn't seem very stressed, honestly, and likes to nap in the V's. I usually wait to write reviews but I am already impressed with this breeding box. The net is harder to see through but not for the casual observer. So overall, this is a functioning product with little issues. I got the medium and it's mostly the width of a 10 gallon tank. The baby fish were able to swim from the bottom back to the time in the corners.

"Every thing else is good."

It's a decent size for an internal breeder box. I never knew how important this was until tank cleaning time! It's plastic but I have used it for several months and it’s help up well. 5 gallon, but he was struggling to swim. The little air tube connection on the side is a nice addition too. I rated this 4 because it works great for the babies to live in for a bit. I feel like this breeder box is sturdier than some others that I've used.

I will definitely buy these kind of breeder again. With the fry drop in you have plenty of room for temporarily keeping the females. It's a decent size for an internal breeder box. Hope you found this review helpful! I put the rainbar into it so now they can't escape. Mine's been doing fine and very useful. They are impossible to reach once it it attached.

"Great item!"

This is my first breeder box so I cant really compare with other brands. I can home one day and one was dead and all torn up from the sides. I do suggest leaving the lid above the waterline, however, as it has two holes. I also like to put in a bowl with acclimating. We need to do mare to make sure bettas are treated better in pet stores, though. I have two female Bettas and a Pleco in a filtered, heated 15-gallon tank. We have 12 babies swimming around in our tank at the moment.
