Instead of using small cups or bowls this handling cup is great with big volume and space for your soil for example. You can also use this when new fish are adding to your tank, for acclimatisation. Super handy!

Questo prodotto per acquaristica mi ha entusiasmato davvero tanto. Lo utilizzo volentieri per vari scopi e devo dire che è molto pratico anche poterlo appendere sui bordi dell’acquario.

Lo consiglio davvero :)

Perfekt für gefangen fische und für den Pflanzenrückschnitt ohne alles rundum nass zu machen

malawiaddiction - German

Ein wirklich gute Fangbecher.

Tiere fangen wie im Zoofachhandel, da ich oft Nachzuchten verkaufe ist er bei mir sehr oft im Einsatz.

Leider ist er etwas empfindlich und geht leicht kaputt mit der Zeit da das Plastik aushärtet, daher gebe ich nur 4 Sterne.

Ansonsten bin ich sehr Zufrieden und Bestelle mir immer wieder einen neuen Nach wenn mein alter sich nach einigen Jahren Einsatz verabschiedet
