DIY Breeder cage/net

Ok for starters you will need 20 feet of yarn (color of your choice) and bigger needle. i used white. 4 plastic fishing bobbers, 5 sheets of plastic with holes in it(You will find in the craft section at walmarts or hobby store). Cut the sheets to what ever size you want it. Then sew the bottoms to the sides, then sew the sides together. Then atache the bobbers to the 5 row of holes down from the top. Ther you go you have a floating breeder Cage or net. ( You can also atach fake plants to the bottom of it).[ATTACH][ATTACH]007.jpg[/ATTACH][/ATTACH]

Well i just posted last night. lol any who yes only $3.00 to build....... I use them for my cichlids. The fry are to big to fit through the holes. But your mollies platys guppys in swordtails might go thro the holes. So you could rap with panty hoes.

thats a good idea, I was thinking of making something like that. Yes its true that is a good deal. I cant even find a breeding net at my lfs. Only the horrible, stress-inducing, tiny breeding trap.
