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.
Since I got my net breeder ive been able to collect more fry keeping then swperate so the adults dont out compete the fry fpr food this has been a huge help in my fish room
My corydoras spawned right after it arrived. It’s perfect for holding the eggs in the filter flow.
Easy to assemble. We put moss or our own fake plants in instead of the trees mounted inside as larger fish can knock them off. The mesh is sturdy, attached on the frames all around. Suction cup holds it perfectly and the ability to slide up and down helps during water changes. We have used it to quarantine bully fish, keep females from being harassed when our M/F ratio was off, catching fish at our leisure the night before a tank swap in a heavily planted tank, birthing, and just a flat out toy for our guppies... goofballs.
A little difficult to put together but good after i figured it out
If you don't hold your tongue just right you will never get it put together. After biting mine almost off it works great. All my fry love it. No problems at all
Not difficult to put together. Seems flimsy at first but once you have the top and bottom in it’s sturdy. I used it to grow out my fry while in the main tank. The plastic plants are no good easier to just buy some java moss.
A little tricky to initially put it together (make sure you read the instructions!) but once it was together it seems sturdy enough. I've had it in my tank for a few days now and all my fry seem to be doing well.
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.
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.
