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.

"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. I would have gone to the next size up to get the extra pressure on the inside glass. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface. 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.

Ale Pomos Final Thoughts

"For me that is a risk."

It is very handy for keeping my 30-gal freshwater aquarium clean. When this one wears out, I will replace it with the same brand. This little pad was just what was needed for cleaning up our 2 gallon bowl. I have used it a lot and really like it. The real bonus is it actually works. I bought this size algae scrubber because I have a 13. I have a redsea 170 that is only about 35 gallons.

"Wait for it."

The only down side would be that the main section that holds the blade is a bit long. I bought this because I have flowerhorns and they bite. I like that the length is adjustable, too. How can a pandemic cause algae you ask. This cleaning tool set has been working wonderfully. You have to squeeze the ends and the cover slides off and the razor blade is exposed. There are multiple attachments which gives options on what to clean with.

"It is The One!"

This tool has enough reach and is plenty strong enough. Possibly I could keep the filters in my small tank. So that is the first tool head I grabbed was the corner cleaner. This works significantly better than any handheld scraper I've ever owned. That piece makes getting the side walls a bit harder. This kit is great if you have pretty deep aquarium or shorter arms. Great for the price as I was not expecting something extremely heavy duty.

"My tank clean once again."

Everything is easy to put together and use. I have bigger fish and the net is for smaller. There are two minor drawbacks to using this tool to scrape algae though. 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. One or two passes and glass was spotless.

Overall this was a very good purchase and good investment. The only thing i wish was different is that the net was bigger. Since I knew this I am happy with it. I have a 5-gallon fish tank with my beta in it. It is way overkill for that small tank but I get the job done very quick. There's another tool that I used to help reset the plants. This scraper is a life saver for me.
