Loved the product!

This is one of the best breeders Ive ever came across for the price. Lining up the edges to assemble it can be tricky but once you have it all together its very sturdy. Good design. Great value.

Net Breader

I like these so good I am planning on buying another one. Works great for saving small fry until they are big enough to be let go in a fank. Helps to keep them together so they are able to find food.

Works Very Well

It’s very easy to put together, which worked well because I had two Lyretails giving birth. This was easy to set up in the tank so I could take my time netting all the fry without shocking them before they were moved into their grow out tank. The box fit into my 5 gallon bucket so I could acclimate everyone slowly.

Very Disappointed

Purchased this breeder box to have my six rare F1 Labidochromis chisumulae "clown lab" fry in my community tank. The breeder box is sturdy and well designed ensuring the safety of the fish within it. My only concern was with the rubber suction cup - since they do detach after long periods of time. Well it was in place for a week - and this morning I find it floating in the tank. My worst fears came to fruition as the fry are lose in the tank - a 72 gallon tank. They are barely an inch in size - so I have grave concern they can survive in a tank with several mbunas.


The construction of the breeder box is much stronger than all the other ones I have seen and decided to use this for my six F1 Labidochromis chisumulae "clown lab" fry. Unlike other breeder boxes, it uses suction cups to attach to the side of the tank. Well this morning, I found the box floating on its side and am unable to locate all of the little fish. They are maybe 3/4" in a 72 gallon tank - so one can understand the frustration of finding the fry - the ones that survived.
