    baby african dwarf frogs

    By on

    This is just awesome. It took me awhile to figure it out. You do want to purchase air line tubing and an air bubbler. I kind of feel like chewy should have stated that, but it is your job to do research. I ordered all supplies from chewy and the box for $20 shipping included. Seems better than a pet store price. I like this box but you really need to make sure that the leveler works and level your tank. I watched a few YouTube tutorials that helped me. My frogs like it and they’re thriving. I wish I could leave a video of it. I am going to get another one for our guppy tank.

    it works wonderfully!

    By on

    It’s a nice small breeding aquarium... easy to install and you can find tutorials on YouTube if you need more help! Remember to buy something to give bubbles to your breeding aquarium to complete the installation... but it’s so perfect! And arrived so soon!

    Love them!

    For once a product that meets all expectations! I've only used it to house newly hatched dwarf rams. You can adjust the water flow to minimize the fry from being bounced around. Caution: use a piece of fine mesh cut to fit to keep the babies from escaping into the parent tank. I currently have abput 150 babies in one with no losses!

    Glad I bought it

    I'm using it to isolate a sluggish Betta from a 20 gal tank. Works great, easy to keep clean with a syringe, and I like that it circulates water - filtered & oxygenated - from the main tank. AND, the fish is doing very well in there.

    "Arrived just in time"

    By on

    Chewy quickly shipped my Marina breeding boxes. I love that these are hung on the outside of the tank, and it circulates the tank water through(but you do need an air pump)and then it overflows back into the tank. Extremely handy to have, in case of expected or unexpected fry, or an injured fish, that needs to be isolated. The day my Marina Breeding boxes arrived, I found a couple fry in my tank..."Thanks Chewy, my order arrived just in time timing"! :)

    Excellent Little tank

    By on

    This is a well made little tank that uses aquarium water circulating through it. Perfect for fry or maybe for a fish wanting some rest and relaxing. Did not fit my large tank but worked well with my 20.

    my fish knocked the water intake out of place

    By on

    I came back home to 4-5gallons spilled on the floor of my house after one of my fish knocked the water intake out of place, which is not very hard to do, while I was at work. Not only that, the price for this item went from $8 to $13 in 2 months since I bought it.

    Breeder box for bettas

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I'm currently using this box for a couple of male bettas I raised. They will be going to their new homes soon but for now this box is a life saver. Having to do daily water changes in individual jars was getting old.
