"Works great."

Extremely happy I made the purchase. I have a fairly deep sand bed in my 90 gallon reef tank. And when i drain water out i can use this without getting wet. Great product and worth every penny. 5 gallon fluval EVO tank running a saltwater set up. My smaller aquarium has a back aside that the brush can easily clean. Hope this review helps a few hobbyists out there.

Happy with the set and all the different interchangeable attachments. You don't need a lot of force, just patience. The quality of the product is better than I had expected for the price.

"I bought 2."

5 and a medium sized one for my 100 gallon reef tank. Everything is easy to put together and use. Like the old kids toy dinosaur head that closes mouth by squeezing. This is my second purchase of this scraper. It's designed nice, very solid and it's a decent price, what's not to like about it. I'm glad I purchase it as it also comes with a net. Possibly I could keep the filters in my small tank.

"The design is nice."

It's an easy to use pad that removed algae fairly easily from the acrylic. There's another tool that I used to help reset the plants. One or two passes and glass was spotless. It actually made cleaning the glass enjoyable. The rake came in handy to smooth the gravel after the gravel cleaning. This is my second purchase of this scraper. There's another tool that I used to help reset the plants.

"Not so with these!"

I found the key to keeping the algae under control is to clean the glass regularly. I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. Keeps my aquarium looking crystal clean. I found the key to keeping the algae under control is to clean the glass regularly. This mini magnet cleaner is really a great deal.

Houkr First Impressions

"Lots of spare blades."

I have no idea how this would hold up to much larger tanks. I have bigger fish and the net is for smaller. The pipe cleaner attachment was very helpful in getting inside the UGF. Add in a gravel vac and you'd basically have a complete cleaning kit. It is way overkill for that small tank but I get the job done very quick. The razer blade scraping tool is great as well. It actually made cleaning the glass enjoyable.

Houkr Final Thoughts

"Works very well."

Don't bother with the other brands. You have to squeeze the ends and the cover slides off and the razor blade is exposed. And I don't often say things like that. Hope this review helps a few hobbyists out there. I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface. It also works well at knocking off buildup from my decorations without removing them.

"A must-have."

I ordered different replacement blades to use instead. It works great for my tank, you may want to get a bigger pad for larger tanks. I bought this tool to help maintain my aquarium. It also works well at knocking off buildup from my decorations without removing them. It's an easy to use pad that removed algae fairly easily from the acrylic. Due to the tank being built in, it's very difficult to clean from the back. That piece makes getting the side walls a bit harder.

Or my white bubbler across the back of my tank without this scraper. Possibly a plastic case for storage around this wet environment. It's an easy to use pad that removed algae fairly easily from the acrylic. You don't need a lot of force, just patience. I have a redsea 170 that is only about 35 gallons.

"Very pleased."

It is very handy for keeping my 30-gal freshwater aquarium clean. I ordered different replacement blades to use instead. Or my white bubbler across the back of my tank without this scraper. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface. My smaller aquarium has a back aside that the brush can easily clean. The long handle made it very easy to get everywhere. Great for the price as I was not expecting something extremely heavy duty.

I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. The quality of the product is better than I had expected for the price. I don't have that worry with this scraper. Hope this review helps a few hobbyists out there. Everything is easy to put together and use. The hole in some attachments must be a little bigger on some than others. Small and inconspicuous in the tank.

"They work really well."

And I don't often say things like that. I have bigger fish and the net is for smaller. This works significantly better than any handheld scraper I've ever owned. Interchangeable pads and a water release for the rod. Aside from that, I'm happy with the product! There are two minor drawbacks to using this tool to scrape algae though. I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water.

"Wait for it."

Due to the tank being built in, it's very difficult to clean from the back. It literally took me 5 mins to scrape my 55 gal. I used a scrubber with little result.

That has an impact on how well this brush works. The quality of the product is better than I had expected for the price.

Ale Pomos Final Thoughts

"Just amazing!"

I have a 55 gallon tank and this does a very good job removing algae from the glass. The one hassle to this scraper is that mounting the blade can be very tricky. This scraper is for an acrylic aquarium. I was surprised at how heavy and well built this is. I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. Or my white bubbler across the back of my tank without this scraper. 5 gallon fluval EVO tank running a saltwater set up.
