"Absolutely."

Guess how I learned that mistake lol. Keeps my aquarium looking crystal clean. I could even clean the back glass by reaching over the top of the tank. I bought this tool to help maintain my aquarium. The hole in some attachments must be a little bigger on some than others. Interchangeable pads and a water release for the rod. This is a good deal and perfect all in one package for cleaning aquariums.

Eheim 57135022 Final Thoughts

"Worth its weight in gold!"

Extremely happy I made the purchase. Small and inconspicuous in the tank. Just a great set of tools for the price. The one hassle to this scraper is that mounting the blade can be very tricky. I could even clean the back glass by reaching over the top of the tank. I found the key to keeping the algae under control is to clean the glass regularly. My only gripe is that the blade is not replaceable.

Extremely happy I made the purchase. Small and inconspicuous in the tank. This kit is great if you have pretty deep aquarium or shorter arms. Everything is easy to put together and use. So that is the first tool head I grabbed was the corner cleaner. Hope this review helps a few hobbyists out there. And when i drain water out i can use this without getting wet.

"No flimsy garbage."

I have two aquariums, a 49 gallon tank and a 10 gallon tank. I've used this tool a couple of times now cleaning the glass on my 125gal tank. I have used the scrapper and it removed the algae from my tank's glass very easily. I bought this based on reviews and sure enough it took care of the algae with ease. I found the key to keeping the algae under control is to clean the glass regularly. Works way better than the Mag-Float I was using. I bought this based on reviews and sure enough it took care of the algae with ease.

3. Algae Glass Scraper

Aquarium Pharmaceuticals First Impressions

"I couldn't resist."

I have 2 of these a Nano flipper for my EVO 13. Or my white bubbler across the back of my tank without this scraper. Since I knew this I am happy with it. Guess how I learned that mistake lol. The quality of the product is better than I had expected for the price. If you hate cleaning and scrubbing your tank this thing is for you. The only issue is there is no blade cover provided for storage.

Aquarium Pharmaceuticals Final Thoughts

"Works great!"

The rake came in handy to smooth the gravel after the gravel cleaning. 5 and a medium sized one for my 100 gallon reef tank. For stubborn spots, you may need to scrub a bit harder. This set works great for the portrait marine land 5+ gallon kit glass tank. It's an easy to use pad that removed algae fairly easily from the acrylic. I have a fairly deep sand bed in my 90 gallon reef tank. This is a good deal and perfect all in one package for cleaning aquariums.

Continuum Aquatics QABMS First Impressions

"They work really well."

It comes with a big net, small net and a few other tools so it is worth it. The quality of the product is better than I had expected for the price. I have used it a lot and really like it. There are two minor drawbacks to using this tool to scrape algae though. I don't have that worry with this scraper. If you think this review was helpful, please don't forget to vote. The angled head of this thing makes all the difference.

"Worth EVERY penny!"

That has an impact on how well this brush works. This works significantly better than any handheld scraper I've ever owned. And i love that the handle is so long, I have a very deep tank. And 23 inches roughly when its fully retracted. The one hassle to this scraper is that mounting the blade can be very tricky. So much better than any other ways I have tried. It is very handy for keeping my 30-gal freshwater aquarium clean.

Mag-Float First Impressions

"This magnet is AMAZING!"

I know alot of people feel this is junk. 5 inch wide razor blade to scrub algae off of the tank. The only issue is there is no blade cover provided for storage. If it was half the size and maybe came with two extenders then it would be better. I hand no issues with it scratching the glass. I have a 5-gallon fish tank with my beta in it. Keeps my aquarium looking crystal clean.

The quality of the product is better than I had expected for the price. And I don't often say things like that. The only issue is there is no blade cover provided for storage. Best aquarium cleaner if you ask me. For stubborn spots, you may need to scrub a bit harder. Aside from that, I'm happy with the product! My aquarium recently had a bad algae outbreak.

"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.

"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.

"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 got the small."

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.

"It is The One!"

This tool has enough reach and is plenty strong enough. The first one lasted for several years. Cuts through built up algea in hard to reach places with no problems! The real bonus is it actually works. I placed it on the rod and cleaned the corners of my tank. I have two aquariums, a 49 gallon tank and a 10 gallon tank. But this simple tool does the job with no chemicals.
