It has the shape as a square box, with netting all the way around. There are hooks one side, so it will hook over the top frame area of the tank to hold it in place, above the water line to keep the other fish out. Although, I have woke up before to find other fish have jumped the netting, luckily they did not eat my fry.
I picked mine up at Walmart for around $4.

if you know she is pregnant i would move her to the breeders net by her self (mine hangs on the inside of my tank) once she has had the babies move her back to the main part of the tank...some one correct me if i am wrong. i am no breeder by anymeans i just had babies by stroke of luck...
i may actually have a pic og my breeders net in my aquariums page??

i couldnt find one and im starting to get worriefd about her because she is slow and not as hyper as she always is and she spends time alone ALOT and i have around 14 fish in a 36 gallon tank so its hard to be alone but she somehow manages it whats wrong with her.feel free to answer molliefan if u see this i forgive u :)

try going to another lfs to get a breeders net...she maybe acting sluggish and wanting to be alone because shes getting ready to drop the fry. i dont know for sure about this only guessing because when a human is that far along they get pretty sluggish and want to be left alone....although humans are not fish...again just guessing at the reason.....but i think you should keep searching for a breeders could be the only way to save the fry. i paid $13.00 for mine and thats a lot cheaper then trying to get a whole other tank set up for the fry.
