"Very impressed."

It needs the extra support of the thicker pole. Nano magnet is a little weak on 6 mm WaterBox, but still works fine. How can a pandemic cause algae you ask. There are multiple attachments which gives options on what to clean with. So much better than any other ways I have tried. This is a good deal and perfect all in one package for cleaning aquariums. If it was half the size and maybe came with two extenders then it would be better.

Fluval 11024 Final Thoughts

"I couldn't resist."

The real bonus is it actually works. Since I knew this I am happy with it. Happy with the set and all the different interchangeable attachments. Due to the tank being built in, it's very difficult to clean from the back. It's also significantly larger so cleaning takes less time. I have a redsea 170 that is only about 35 gallons. It's an easy to use pad that removed algae fairly easily from the acrylic.

Fluval A1349 First Impressions

"Worth the money."

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.

"Magnet is strong."

The only thing i wish was different is that the net was bigger. I have no idea how this would hold up to much larger tanks. And I don't often say things like that. But since no directions come, I thought I might mention it. I know alot of people feel this is junk. Great product and worth every penny. The pipe cleaner attachment was very helpful in getting inside the UGF.

"I will say this was 2-2."

I have two aquariums, a 49 gallon tank and a 10 gallon tank. Easy to install the blade, seems to be well made. This set works great for the portrait marine land 5+ gallon kit glass tank. My only gripe is that the blade is not replaceable. I have a 5-gallon fish tank with my beta in it. The quality of the product is better than I had expected for the price. I would not have an aquarium without this.

"It will last much longer."

Possibly I could keep the filters in my small tank. If it was half the size and maybe came with two extenders then it would be better. The hole in some attachments must be a little bigger on some than others. I order this Extendable 5 in 1Fish Tank Cleaning Set. I have used it a lot and really like it. My only gripe is that the blade is not replaceable. I like that the length is adjustable, too.

"A must-have."

This kit is great if you have pretty deep aquarium or shorter arms. I found the key to keeping the algae under control is to clean the glass regularly.

"I'm not using the blade."

This set works great for the portrait marine land 5+ gallon kit glass tank. The pipe cleaner attachment was very helpful in getting inside the UGF. Great product and worth every penny. If you have an aquarium with algae, use razer to clean them off the glass. That I haven't seen in any other tool set. And I don't often say things like that. Everything is easy to put together and use.

I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. I have a 55 gallon tank and this does a very good job removing algae from the glass. Great product and worth every penny. My husband has even tried to remove it. It is very easy to swap the heads with very convenient locking system. I know alot of people feel this is junk.
