"Lots of spare blades."

It is way overkill for that small tank but I get the job done very quick. The rake came in handy to smooth the gravel after the gravel cleaning. I have used the scrapper and it removed the algae from my tank's glass very easily. Don't bother with the other brands. The net of this set is a little small for my uses. But since no directions come, I thought I might mention it. I bought this based on reviews and sure enough it took care of the algae with ease.

"My back thanks you."

The quality of the product is better than I had expected for the price. The head of the scrapper has no sharp or hard edges to scratch the glass. If you are too close to the top water will splash. Great for the price as I was not expecting something extremely heavy duty. It is way overkill for that small tank but I get the job done very quick. When this one wears out, I will replace it with the same brand. The pipe cleaner attachment was very helpful in getting inside the UGF.

"I like it."

This works significantly better than any handheld scraper I've ever owned. Guess how I learned that mistake lol. This set works great for the portrait marine land 5+ gallon kit glass tank. I have used it a lot and really like it. It literally took me 5 mins to scrape my 55 gal. You don't need a lot of force, just patience. How can a pandemic cause algae you ask.

"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."

Nano magnet is a little weak on 6 mm WaterBox, but still works fine. I was surprised at how heavy and well built this is. This aquarium scraper is so much better than the old one. The only down side would be that the main section that holds the blade is a bit long. This works significantly better than any handheld scraper I've ever owned. I've used this tool a couple of times now cleaning the glass on my 125gal tank. I placed it on the rod and cleaned the corners of my tank.

"Very sturdy."

Nano magnet is a little weak on 6 mm WaterBox, but still works fine. I ordered different replacement blades to use instead. My aquarium recently had a bad algae outbreak. I have 2 of these a Nano flipper for my EVO 13. I have bigger fish and the net is for smaller. Or my white bubbler across the back of my tank without this scraper. I've been recommending it to all my friends with aquariums.

"Couldn't do that before!"

The telescoping handle is nice and makes cleaning deeper tanks a breeze. I have a 5-gallon fish tank with my beta in it. If you are too close to the top water will splash. If it was half the size and maybe came with two extenders then it would be better. I have bigger fish and the net is for smaller. Best aquarium cleaner if you ask me. I bought this size algae scrubber because I have a 13.

"Long reach."

Just a great set of tools for the price. I would have gone to the next size up to get the extra pressure on the inside glass. The pipe cleaner attachment was very helpful in getting inside the UGF. When this one wears out, I will replace it with the same brand. It's designed nice, very solid and it's a decent price, what's not to like about it. Due to the tank being built in, it's very difficult to clean from the back. If I applied too much pressure, the handle would snap.

UEETEK First Impressions

"They are the best."

I know alot of people feel this is junk. Due to the tank being built in, it's very difficult to clean from the back. The first one lasted for several years. The only down side would be that the main section that holds the blade is a bit long. 5 inch wide razor blade to scrub algae off of the tank. Also love the ability to quickly change tools with snap on head feature! Due to the tank being built in, it's very difficult to clean from the back.

"I like it."

Like the old kids toy dinosaur head that closes mouth by squeezing. I have a fairly deep sand bed in my 90 gallon reef tank. Possibly I could keep the filters in my small tank. I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. I would not have an aquarium without this. It works great for my tank, you may want to get a bigger pad for larger tanks. And I don't often say things like that.

"Perfect for nano tank!"

And when i drain water out i can use this without getting wet. It actually made cleaning the glass enjoyable. The rake came in handy to smooth the gravel after the gravel cleaning. This kit is great if you have pretty deep aquarium or shorter arms. The one hassle to this scraper is that mounting the blade can be very tricky. I hand no issues with it scratching the glass. Works way better than the Mag-Float I was using.

  • Magnetic Aquarium Fish Tank Cleaner, Fish Tank Glass Cleaner, Floating Clean Brush with Handle Design
  • Suitable for fish tanks with glass thickness less than 0.4 inch (10mm), More convenient and fast cleaning of dirt and scum in water tank.And it won't scratch the glass.This product can not only clean the fish tank, but also clean the windows and walls. It also has a very good effect.
  • The strong magnetic force makes the internal cleaning brush follow the external handle. Don't worry about the internal cleaning brush falling off,It will float on the water automatically. When you don't want to use it, you can pick it up directly from the water. It's very convenient.
  • The handle adopts bionic design, which has anti-skid effect and saves more labor when used. The head of the product has a scraper, which is made of harder plastic. It has a good effect on some dirty stains which are difficult to clean. The scraper can be disassembled separately and stored when it is not wanted to be used. It can also clean windows and floors.
  • When the cleaning is finished, no need to take it out. The brush is waterproof, just need to adsorb it on the glass, do not worry about brush damage.
  • Note: Because the product has too much magnetic force, it is necessary to rotate the two brushes 90 degrees and then separate them.Such a method can avoid injury.

"This work really well."

The only down side would be that the main section that holds the blade is a bit long. And when i drain water out i can use this without getting wet. I used a scrubber with little result. Possibly I could keep the filters in my small tank. It's an easy to use pad that removed algae fairly easily from the acrylic. If you are too close to the top water will splash. It also works well at knocking off buildup from my decorations without removing them.

"This works great."

I bought this size algae scrubber because I have a 13. It's also significantly larger so cleaning takes less time. I have a fairly deep sand bed in my 90 gallon reef tank. And 23 inches roughly when its fully retracted. If you have an aquarium with algae, use razer to clean them off the glass. I have a 55 gallon tank and this does a very good job removing algae from the glass. Easy to install the blade, seems to be well made.

"Worth its weight in gold!"

Works way better than the Mag-Float I was using. My only gripe is that the blade is not replaceable. I have two aquariums, a 49 gallon tank and a 10 gallon tank. But for the price I paid, I don't mind water running down my arm one bit. When this one wears out, I will replace it with the same brand. If you have an aquarium with algae, use razer to clean them off the glass. 5 inch wide razor blade to scrub algae off of the tank.

"I don't use it."

I could even clean the back glass by reaching over the top of the tank. It's designed nice, very solid and it's a decent price, what's not to like about it. If they had an extension that'd be nice. There's another tool that I used to help reset the plants. Easy to install the blade, seems to be well made. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface. The Gravel rake make it so much easier aswell to level out the rock.

"Long reach."

I hand no issues with it scratching the glass. I would not have an aquarium without this. It works awesome and does everything I wanted it too and more. My smaller aquarium has a back aside that the brush can easily clean. I used a scrubber with little result. You have to squeeze the ends and the cover slides off and the razor blade is exposed. Just a great set of tools for the price.
