Ultimate Breather Bags Review

So I finally took the plunge and bought some of these, I'm really glad I did.

Pros:

Way more affordable than Kordon

They heat seal way better than Kordon bags

No seams to leak on the sides like Kordons

Heavier material, I would feel safe to ship an angelfish or cory cat in one of these


I was seriously blown away by how much better these bags are than Kordon bags. Also the fish don't get caught in them when emptying like a Kordon.

I also tested a few by placing a couple of fish in them and observing for 5 days. No issues

Thanks for the review, I love the idea of breather bags but as you've mentioned, I've had a few leak and the price is a bit off putting.

I was doing three seals on the end of Kordon bags to ensure they didn't fully leak out. These things seal watertight with ONE, I even held it over the sink and tried to pop it by squeezing and putting pressure on the seal, not a drop one.

My heat sealer is just a generic impulse sealer so nothing special there.
