    Very unhappy customer

    By on

    Very unhappy with product does not sit well in or out the tank. i just decided to buy more plants so that the baby guppies can hide in the foliage. Not worth returning, I will end up paying more in shipping then the item is actually worth.

    Needs extra parts

    By on

    I didn't realize this breeding box needs an air pump and airline tubing. CHEWY doesn't even sell the airline tubing so now I have to look elsewhere for it. Seems like a useful item once I get all the parts. Very disappointed.

    Doesnt circulate as stated

    By on

    Set it up the water burpes into and out of on air exchange. I have guppies so hoping they survive ok. But not enough oxygen exchange in water flow to be safe for many species.

    Best Breeder Ever

    By on

    Honestly the best breeder I've bought so far. Its convenient for my job since it sits outside the tank. I got the large breeder so when a cichlid (baby not full grown) happens to be hurt or sick they are able to move through the breeder instead of in the main tank with smaller fish they would try to eat. It works better than the one I bought that sits inside the tank and floats around. That particular one ended up not being helpful and not as sturdy as the marina.

    Purchasing a third one right now

    By on Top 100 Contributor

    This thing is great! I have 4 tanks of guppies. 1 for the ladies, 2 for the fellas, and 1 for the babies. I do not isolate my females because it seems too stressful for them, so I just catch the babies when they arrive, and pop em in this bad boy. When I've got enough in there, I move it to the nursery and allow them to acclimate. When they outgrow the nursery I catch them one more time and divide them up amongst the tanks. Having a third one will allow me to get all of the large juveniles out at once. I prefer to use a battery powered air pump with it so that the entire system is portable and so that I don't have to divert air from their tank or try to find a spare outlet for another air pump This thing is great!

    Serves its purpose

    It seemed okay but I didn’t like how it sits outside the tank. I felt like my pregnant guppy stayed stress in it. I prefer the net
