"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.

"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.

"It doesn't float."

It works great for my tank, you may want to get a bigger pad for larger tanks. There's another tool that I used to help reset the plants. This tool has enough reach and is plenty strong enough. The first one lasted for several years. This cleaning tool set has been working wonderfully. There's another tool that I used to help reset the plants. It comes with a big net, small net and a few other tools so it is worth it.

AQUANEAT CS-A320 First Impressions

"Just amazing!"

If it was half the size and maybe came with two extenders then it would be better. I've used this tool a couple of times now cleaning the glass on my 125gal tank. The Gravel rake make it so much easier aswell to level out the rock. Guess how I learned that mistake lol. So that is the first tool head I grabbed was the corner cleaner. I could even clean the back glass by reaching over the top of the tank. And when i drain water out i can use this without getting wet.

"It is small and compact."

The telescoping handle is nice and makes cleaning deeper tanks a breeze. The quality of the product is better than I had expected for the price. You don't need a lot of force, just patience. One or two passes and glass was spotless. If they had an extension that'd be nice. If I applied too much pressure, the handle would snap. And when i drain water out i can use this without getting wet.

"For the price—Awesome."

The rake came in handy to smooth the gravel after the gravel cleaning. This aquarium scraper is so much better than the old one. The razer blade scraping tool is great as well. A little more tomorrow and the next day and almost all the algae will be gone. Keeps my aquarium looking crystal clean. Best aquarium cleaner if you ask me. Cuts through built up algea in hard to reach places with no problems!

"I would buy this again."

I bought this based on reviews and sure enough it took care of the algae with ease. The only thing i wish was different is that the net was bigger. If it was half the size and maybe came with two extenders then it would be better. It's an aquascape aquarium by the way. I placed it on the rod and cleaned the corners of my tank. I bought this size algae scrubber because I have a 13. There are two minor drawbacks to using this tool to scrape algae though.

"I'm not using the blade."

I have two aquariums, a 49 gallon tank and a 10 gallon tank. This kit is great if you have pretty deep aquarium or shorter arms. 5 and a medium sized one for my 100 gallon reef tank. Easy to install the blade, seems to be well made. I have a 24 inch deep tank that requires I stand on a chair to get to the top. The first one lasted for several years. I bought this because I have flowerhorns and they bite.

"Still pretty good!"

It actually made cleaning the glass enjoyable. And I don't often say things like that. The sand cleaner accessory is cool, because it helps with routine cleanup. This is my second purchase of this scraper. I have a redsea 170 that is only about 35 gallons. My smaller aquarium has a back aside that the brush can easily clean. This scraper is a life saver for me.

"Not so with these!"

I found the key to keeping the algae under control is to clean the glass regularly. I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. Keeps my aquarium looking crystal clean. I found the key to keeping the algae under control is to clean the glass regularly. This mini magnet cleaner is really a great deal.

"I rarely use this one."

The head of the scrapper has no sharp or hard edges to scratch the glass. Guess how I learned that mistake lol. One or two passes and glass was spotless.

"Just amazing!"

It comes with a big net, small net and a few other tools so it is worth it. My husband has even tried to remove it. But for the price I paid, I don't mind water running down my arm one bit. 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. Best aquarium cleaner if you ask me. This is my second purchase of this scraper.

Everything is easy to put together and use. The rake came in handy to smooth the gravel after the gravel cleaning. If I applied too much pressure, the handle would snap. If they had an extension that'd be nice. One or two passes and glass was spotless. This little pad was just what was needed for cleaning up our 2 gallon bowl. That piece makes getting the side walls a bit harder.

"Works great."

I don't have that worry with this scraper. There's another tool that I used to help reset the plants. I would not have an aquarium without this. It works awesome and does everything I wanted it too and more. When this one wears out, I will replace it with the same brand. That has an impact on how well this brush works. The angled head of this thing makes all the difference.

But since no directions come, I thought I might mention it. And I don't often say things like that. The head of the scrapper has no sharp or hard edges to scratch the glass. My aquarium recently had a bad algae outbreak. The hole in some attachments must be a little bigger on some than others. Guess how I learned that mistake lol.
