"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.

Aquarium Algae Scrapers Final Thoughts

"Just amazing!"

If you are too close to the top water will splash. One or two passes and glass was spotless. The Gravel rake make it so much easier aswell to level out the rock. Since I knew this I am happy with it. The sand cleaner accessory is cool, because it helps with routine cleanup. I have a 5-gallon fish tank with my beta in it. Dont have to get wet, its very long, about 33 inches at maximum extension.

"Waaait for it."

Interchangeable pads and a water release for the rod. This little pad was just what was needed for cleaning up our 2 gallon bowl. I bought this because I have flowerhorns and they bite. The razer blade scraping tool is great as well. This scrapper will trap some of it making it easier to get out of the tank. Cuts through built up algea in hard to reach places with no problems! I used a scrubber with little result.

"Lots of spare blades."

This set comes with acouple different cleaning tools. I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. This aquarium scraper is so much better than the old one. The quality of the product is better than I had expected for the price. It is very easy to swap the heads with very convenient locking system. The only issue is there is no blade cover provided for storage. If you hate cleaning and scrubbing your tank this thing is for you.

"Worth EVERY penny!"

Everything is easy to put together and use. This is my second purchase of this scraper. 5 inch wide razor blade to scrub algae off of the tank. This scraper is a life saver for me. Due to the tank being built in, it's very difficult to clean from the back. It also works well at knocking off buildup from my decorations without removing them. I have a 5-gallon fish tank with my beta in it.

"This magnet is AMAZING!"

So that is the first tool head I grabbed was the corner cleaner. I found the key to keeping the algae under control is to clean the glass regularly. Overall this was a very good purchase and good investment. The hole in some attachments must be a little bigger on some than others. Happy with the set and all the different interchangeable attachments. This set really save me lots of time when I clean my aquarium. If you think this review was helpful, please don't forget to vote.

  • ISTA Floating EZ Cleaner 2.3"x1.2" (S) Magnet - Aquarium Fish Tank Algae Glass
  • Having a Floating EZ Cleaner on hand is as essential for aquarium maintenance as keeping a net and bucket near your aquarium. Scrub away algae without ever getting your hands wet, thanks to its clever magnet-on-magnet design. Simply drag the no-scratch, felt-lined handle, and inside your aquarium, the scrubber follows, cleaning as it goes. Better yet, if the magnets separate, the scrubber floats right back to the surface, so you'll never have to dig around on the bottom.

"Recommended!"

I placed it on the rod and cleaned the corners of my tank. My aquarium recently had a bad algae outbreak. So much better than any other ways I have tried. Cuts through built up algea in hard to reach places with no problems! Works way better than the Mag-Float I was using. The only thing i wish was different is that the net was bigger. This is a nice tool to have is you have an aquarium.

"I like it."

This scraper is a life saver for me. It also works well at knocking off buildup from my decorations without removing them. If you have an aquarium with algae, use razer to clean them off the glass. How can a pandemic cause algae you ask. Extremely happy I made the purchase. The first one lasted for several years. The real bonus is it actually works.

"I got the small."

I have a redsea 170 that is only about 35 gallons. My aquarium recently had a bad algae outbreak. It is way overkill for that small tank but I get the job done very quick. This set comes with acouple different cleaning tools. You have to squeeze the ends and the cover slides off and the razor blade is exposed. The long handle made it very easy to get everywhere. My smaller aquarium has a back aside that the brush can easily clean.

My aquarium recently had a bad algae outbreak. This set comes with acouple different cleaning tools. It works great for my tank, you may want to get a bigger pad for larger tanks. 5 and a medium sized one for my 100 gallon reef tank. It actually made cleaning the glass enjoyable.

"I couldn't resist."

The head of the scrapper has no sharp or hard edges to scratch the glass. So much better than any other ways I have tried. It also works well at knocking off buildup from my decorations without removing them. The angled head of this thing makes all the difference. I bought this tool to help maintain my aquarium. It needs the extra support of the thicker pole. Just a great set of tools for the price.

"Great buy!"

I bought this because I have flowerhorns and they bite. If you wait months, it gets so thick and tough, it's very hard to remove. Use them both every day and have zero problems with it. I could even clean the back glass by reaching over the top of the tank. The long handle made it very easy to get everywhere. 5 and a medium sized one for my 100 gallon reef tank. But this simple tool does the job with no chemicals.

"My back thanks you."

This aquarium scraper is so much better than the old one. It's designed nice, very solid and it's a decent price, what's not to like about it. Or my white bubbler across the back of my tank without this scraper. If they had an extension that'd be nice. I hand no issues with it scratching the glass. I order this Extendable 5 in 1Fish Tank Cleaning Set. I know alot of people feel this is junk.
