I guess this will have been covered here previously, but when doing a seach the only thing that came up was some one asking about using a clothes peg bag...
My questions are:
1. what fry savers do you use..??
2. what are their dimensions..?? (looking for something fairly large about 12"x4"x4"...)
3. what is it made out of..??
4. how would you rate it, and would you recommend it..?
5. where did you get it from..??
6. what did it cost..??
I currently have 3. 2 net ones both about 6"x4"x4" and a plastic 5 in 1 type which is about 7"x3"x4".
The net ones are ok but are really a little small. The good thing about them is that the fry stay in it (holes are the ideal size) and that because its net the water flow through the saver is good. they were also cheap (less than £4) each. However due to the size I'd only rate it 6 out of 10
The plastic one which is supposed to have been designed for live bearers, I'd only rate as 1 out of 10. This is due to the fact that even with the plate in the bottom (designed to keep small fry in) the fry can squeeze down the sides of it and escape out in to the big tank only to become tastysnacks for other fish.... water flow isn't good either definately wouldn't reccomend it..!!
The reason for my questions is the fact that my Bn's have breed, however my fry tank is currently already full with other fry, (mollies, guppies, platys and Bns ) so was going to keep them in the main tank if I can get a decent sized fry saver.
