"This works great."

It is very easy to swap the heads with very convenient locking system. So much better than any other ways I have tried. Overall this was a very good purchase and good investment. I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. How can a pandemic cause algae you ask. I have used it a lot and really like it. It comes with a big net, small net and a few other tools so it is worth it.

"Recommended!"

I bought this size algae scrubber because I have a 13. If you are too close to the top water will splash. I'm glad I purchase it as it also comes with a net. It is way overkill for that small tank but I get the job done very quick. My aquarium recently had a bad algae outbreak. This tool has enough reach and is plenty strong enough. I have a 55 gallon tank and this does a very good job removing algae from the glass.

"Lots of spare blades."

The net of this set is a little small for my uses. It actually made cleaning the glass enjoyable. So that is the first tool head I grabbed was the corner cleaner. Use them both every day and have zero problems with it. I've been recommending it to all my friends with aquariums. But for the price I paid, I don't mind water running down my arm one bit. If you hate cleaning and scrubbing your tank this thing is for you.

"Lots of spare blades."

I have no idea how this would hold up to much larger tanks. It also works well at knocking off buildup from my decorations without removing them. If you wait months, it gets so thick and tough, it's very hard to remove. I bought this tool to help maintain my aquarium. For stubborn spots, you may need to scrub a bit harder. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface. It's also significantly larger so cleaning takes less time.

"I rarely use this one."

The only issue is there is no blade cover provided for storage. Possibly I could keep the filters in my small tank. This little pad was just what was needed for cleaning up our 2 gallon bowl. 5 and a medium sized one for my 100 gallon reef tank. Keeps my aquarium looking crystal clean. Or my white bubbler across the back of my tank without this scraper. I know alot of people feel this is junk.

"I have a small 3."

I have used the scrapper and it removed the algae from my tank's glass very easily. I've been recommending it to all my friends with aquariums. But this simple tool does the job with no chemicals. There's another tool that I used to help reset the plants. I have a 5-gallon fish tank with my beta in it. This scraper is for an acrylic aquarium. The pipe cleaner attachment was very helpful in getting inside the UGF.

This set really save me lots of time when I clean my aquarium. The only thing i wish was different is that the net was bigger. Use them both every day and have zero problems with it.

"Perfect for nano tank!"

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 placed it on the rod and cleaned the corners of my tank. I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. Everything is easy to put together and use. Extremely happy I made the purchase. I have a 55 gallon tank and this does a very good job removing algae from the glass.

"Waaait for it."

Interchangeable pads and a water release for the rod. This little pad was just what was needed for cleaning up our 2 gallon bowl. I bought this because I have flowerhorns and they bite. The razer blade scraping tool is great as well. This scrapper will trap some of it making it easier to get out of the tank. Cuts through built up algea in hard to reach places with no problems! I used a scrubber with little result.

"I rarely use this one."

This set comes with acouple different cleaning tools. I bought this based on reviews and sure enough it took care of the algae with ease. Easy to install the blade, seems to be well made. The rake came in handy to smooth the gravel after the gravel cleaning. Works way better than the Mag-Float I was using. So much better than any other ways I have tried. One or two passes and glass was spotless.

This scrapper will trap some of it making it easier to get out of the tank. The only issue is there is no blade cover provided for storage. The hole in some attachments must be a little bigger on some than others. Add in a gravel vac and you'd basically have a complete cleaning kit. But for the price I paid, I don't mind water running down my arm one bit. 5 gallon fluval EVO tank running a saltwater set up. There are two minor drawbacks to using this tool to scrape algae though.

This scraper is for an acrylic aquarium. The head of the scrapper has no sharp or hard edges to scratch the glass. Happy with the set and all the different interchangeable attachments. If you think this review was helpful, please don't forget to vote. I have used it a lot and really like it. A little more tomorrow and the next day and almost all the algae will be gone. It literally took me 5 mins to scrape my 55 gal.

"Highly recommend!"

Easy to install the blade, seems to be well made. Possibly a plastic case for storage around this wet environment. It's also significantly larger so cleaning takes less time. If you have an aquarium with algae, use razer to clean them off the glass. I would not have an aquarium without this. The rake came in handy to smooth the gravel after the gravel cleaning. There's another tool that I used to help reset the plants.

"I got the small."

This works significantly better than any handheld scraper I've ever owned. The angled head of this thing makes all the difference. 5 and a medium sized one for my 100 gallon reef tank. And when i drain water out i can use this without getting wet. The Gravel rake make it so much easier aswell to level out the rock. If you have an aquarium with algae, use razer to clean them off the glass. You have to squeeze the ends and the cover slides off and the razor blade is exposed.
