About this deal

I like it but I put pantyhose or am cut a piece of fine sponge for the outflow as small fry swim right through the grate. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

Items are packed with secure packing material and heat, cold, or Cryo packs as needed to maintain safe temperatures during transit. Small pea puffers (and presumably other like minded fish) can jump out of the box over top of the silly little gate, so keep that in mind with jumping inclined species. The Ista hang on back breeding box is intended to hang on the back of the aquarium, therefore not occupying space in the aquarium. Easily attaching to the side of most aquariums up to 1″ thick, the Hang-On Breeder Box provides isolated housing for protecting fry, sick/weak fish or new fish that require acclimation.Suitable for frameless aquariums with a glass thickness of 5-10mm and framed aquariums measuring less than 26mm, the Fluval Hang-On Breeding Box utilises the same conditioned aquarium water meaning no additional heater or filter is required. If you don't have fry, the stuff in the box slowly works its way into the tank where your other fish can chomp them down.

Easily attaches to the side of most aquariums up to 1" thick, the Fluval Hang-On Breeding Box provides isolated housing for protecting fry, sick/weak fish or new fish that require acclimation. Fluval Hang-On Breeding Box is a breeding and spawning box that is hung on the outside of the aquarium glass. When using for breeding fish, there is a removable section so that the mother fish stays in the top section, and the baby fry fall to the bottom section to keep them separate to prevent fish eating the fry. We take fraud very seriously so all credit and debit card transactions are subject to validation, authorisation and security checks by both the card issuer and ourselves. The external one has to hang off the back of my tanks here, is less observable for me, has more temperature and parameter fluctuations based off food and flow rates.The main use for mine is likely going to be attempting to grow moss / susswassertang without risk of it getting tossed into the HoB filter. As a result when I'm feeding cry in the box the rest of the tank is conditioning off bbs that get through the mesh. Small fry will definitely exit even through the finest “grate” so something like a piece of pantyhose or other fine mesh over it will help. I hooked mine up and it's definitely as loud and as silly and as goofy as many youtube videos make it seem.

Fluval Black Max Airline tubing is made of flexible plasticized polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and is designed to fit all standard air pump outlets and fittings. I especially like it for sorting fish since it circulates tank water through so it doesn’t get yucky while you’re sorting. Beginners will truly enjoy the convenience of our fish starter kits and more experienced hobbyists will appreciate the reliability and efficiency of Marina filters and heaters. If you do this, it will be silent and will be very nice instead of as loud and goofy as mentioned above. All that said, it’s a great detention center for a larger pea puffer that misbehaves (ask me how I know).The in tank ones have a mesh that keeps my baby puffers in but lets some baby brine work their way out. Ista specialise in planted aquarium equipment and supplies, so you can be sure that this product is one of the most advanced on the market and made to the highest possible quality. A small piece of sponge or any kind of floss stuffed into the opening of the inflow tube does wonders for making the bubbling/burbling quieter. I purchased the large one and plan to leave the first and last containers with foam (something to stop fry and ease the intake) so that I don't have any issues with anything. Fluval has surely earned a global reputation for excellence in product innovation and dependability.

Warm, oxygenated water from main aquarium circulates continuously through the breeding box with the use of an air pump (sold separately), so that fish enjoy the same conditions as the aquarium. It flushes away the stress hormones that can build up after catching while your sorting is going on. A bit of craft mesh taped over the opening over top of the overflow gate would likely stop that silliness. Deliveries are usually Monday to Friday only, although some Royal Mail items may be delivered on weekends as standard if the service is available in your area. I did see a video a bit ago on a knockoff brand that did have some tweaks and fixed some of the issues.For over 30 years therefore it has earned the trust of fish-hobbyists by making innovative products that deliver many valuable benefits. Marina is dedicated to providing a wide variety of user-friendly and affordable aquarium products for all levels of fish keeping. The drivers in these instances are unfortunately not permitted to assist with the pallet beyond the drop off, and cannot aid in bringing packages into the property.
