A primary need of any aquarium hobbyist is a simple, safe method of saving baby fish. After years of research, Penn-Plax has designed a unit to accomplish this purpose: Aqua-Nursery. The beauty of the Aqua-Nursery is that it is a completely automatic system. Once it is set up in place, there's nothing further to do until the fish are born and deposited into their seperate nursery section. While it is providing this service, the Aqua-Nursery also creates a constant circulation in both the maternity and the nursery sections. This eliminates the problems of stagnant water existing in most other breeding traps, and keeps the mother and the babies alive. The Aqua-Nursery will do its job quietly and confidently with no effort on your part.
The 1st one I ordered arrived missing a part. I made a call to the seller & they quickly shipped me a replacement at no charge & let me keep what I already had for replacement parts. Excellent customer service! I was very impressed. This nursery is the BEST out of all that I have tried. I works excellent exactly as they said it would. Babies are gently swooped into the little baby tank. I came in to check on them this morning and found a little surprise! About 35 little buggers looking at me with their big eyes. Momma was safe on the other side resting after her busy night. It was very easy to remove the baby container and transport it to my baby tank. It holds some water so the babies don't get traumatized. This does require a small air pump that i had to purchase separately, but it was well worth the $$. This is worth TEN stars!!!!

This is the best "baby saver" I have ever used - fool proof - Momma fishe cannot eat babies because gentle current pulls the babies away from her and into seprate chamber .
