Nice, i was looking at this and woundering how good it would work for housing betta's, i dislike the small tanks the pet stores sell and mines a bit aggresive so needa sperate him til i can afford to get a new tank up and running.

what you guys think a nice spacious one for him and the holes would allow for nice water flow and good water quality.

thats a good idea!!!! just be sure it does not get right in the flow from the filter the big fins make current very tiring for the betta

Well i have made some new ones with foam around the top. and a lid for it so that way they could sit at the bottom of the tank and it turned out nice. I will get pics up soon.

I wonder how this would work for Angelfish fry. It would be cruel to put the parents in the breeding net with the fry as it would be a bit too small, but netting the fry into this could work. I always worry about stressing the parents though, especially with this where they can see the fry but can't get to them. What do you think?

yes i would net the fry and put them in there.
Themommy would be to large as angles get very large.
I use it for strickly fry for my cichlids. When i strip the females of there fry.
Then they go into a diffrent tank after 3 days.
But im sure you could kkep them in there untill they are large enough to keep in the main tank.
I wouldnt hesitate to put them in there.
Best of luck. let us know how it works if you do use it.
