Marina Hang On Breeding Box Large
Nice price08/20/2013
By Sheila M
This is a nice little unit for the price. Currently just using at times to hold bettas or other fish while cycling other tanks. Gives any tank big enough for it to hang on a little added space and and water volume. Like others have said the water flow thru it is rather slow. Even with a decent air pump on it, the flow is only a few gallons an hour if that, but is it just half a gal in size and only for a couple small fish so it should be sufficient. Have not tried with a small water pump but that prob would help with flow. The 0.5 gallon product statement is correct. Measured myself and actually holds a few extra oz before it begins to overflow. Initially looked at the Finnex model of the same thing wanting its larger claimed volume of 1 gallon, but it stated dimensions are the same as this unit so don't know how can be 2x the vol. If anyone can confirm the Finnex volume in a future review, that would be great. As usual Ken's is the best price, almost half of at other places.

Very Cool12/10/2014

I liked this so much, I bought 3 more! Easy to set up, shaped like a clear HOB filter, and works great for both the cory eggs and guppies I was sorting. Can be split in half or thirds, and the lid clips are useful. The only real downside is that it does collect debris from the aquarium, that either settles on the bottom or can clog the filter piece. I wrapped filter floss around the filter piece to keep babies in & it clogged in a few days. I found out it's designed to overflow into the tank, and not onto the floor, which I also appreciated. Needs to be gently vacuumed regularly, but still miles above interior breeder boxes.

A must-have for every fishroom!01/23/2013

This item is worth every penny! It is perfect for almost any situation where you need a small container with filtered water, but don't want to set up a separate tank. The large fits perfectly on the back of a 120g if you don't need/want to see it so much. Can even be modified to use a mini-pump/powerhead for maximum water flow. I have one set-up to grow "snail treats" for my loaches, one growing "shrimp treats" and one that I move around to different tanks as a temporary nursery. I put this item on the top of my "must-have" list for every fishroom.

Works Great..air flow controls water flow easily. I added a extra air stone in box for added air that caused extra turbulence and hatched out pleco eggs with no fungus issues. Worked better than my egg tumbler. Will try Angelfish eggs sometime. Leaving pleco fry in, to grow out some. With added air stone..waste washes out with water flow. With water flow screen, comes with two choices makes it easy to prevent fry from escaping. Cover helps on the water evaporation.
