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.

"This works great."

But since no directions come, I thought I might mention it. Just a great set of tools for the price. It comes with a big net, small net and a few other tools so it is worth it. I have a 5-gallon fish tank with my beta in it. The only thing i wish was different is that the net was bigger. Easy to install the blade, seems to be well made. This works significantly better than any handheld scraper I've ever owned.

"I will say this was 2-2."

The one hassle to this scraper is that mounting the blade can be very tricky. This is a good deal and perfect all in one package for cleaning aquariums. I have two aquariums, a 49 gallon tank and a 10 gallon tank. This set works great for the portrait marine land 5+ gallon kit glass tank. I bought this tool to help maintain my aquarium. You have to squeeze the ends and the cover slides off and the razor blade is exposed. I have a fairly deep sand bed in my 90 gallon reef tank.

The pipe cleaner attachment was very helpful in getting inside the UGF. You don't need a lot of force, just patience.

"My tank clean once again."

My aquarium recently had a bad algae outbreak. But for the price I paid, I don't mind water running down my arm one bit. I ordered different replacement blades to use instead. I have a fairly deep sand bed in my 90 gallon reef tank. I have a 55 gallon tank and this does a very good job removing algae from the glass. Possibly I could keep the filters in my small tank. Everything is easy to put together and use.

"I will say this was 2-2."

My husband has even tried to remove it. There are two minor drawbacks to using this tool to scrape algae though. If I applied too much pressure, the handle would snap. It's designed nice, very solid and it's a decent price, what's not to like about it. The real bonus is it actually works. I have used the scrapper and it removed the algae from my tank's glass very easily. The first one lasted for several years.

"Don't increase the angle."

The razer blade scraping tool is great as well. I would have gone to the next size up to get the extra pressure on the inside glass. If you wait months, it gets so thick and tough, it's very hard to remove. 5 and a medium sized one for my 100 gallon reef tank. I would not have an aquarium without this. Possibly a plastic case for storage around this wet environment. I bought this based on reviews and sure enough it took care of the algae with ease.

"Cleans algae very well."

It works great for my tank, you may want to get a bigger pad for larger tanks. It is quite sturdy and made of stainless steel so it should last a long time. 5 gallon fluval EVO tank running a saltwater set up. My only gripe is that the blade is not replaceable. But since no directions come, I thought I might mention it. It needs the extra support of the thicker pole. Great product and worth every penny.

"No flimsy garbage."

So much better than any other ways I have tried. And i love that the handle is so long, I have a very deep tank. But this simple tool does the job with no chemicals. I've used this tool a couple of times now cleaning the glass on my 125gal tank. The rake came in handy to smooth the gravel after the gravel cleaning. Like the old kids toy dinosaur head that closes mouth by squeezing. I hand no issues with it scratching the glass.

So that is the first tool head I grabbed was the corner cleaner. The one hassle to this scraper is that mounting the blade can be very tricky.
