"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.

"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 got the small."

It comes with a big net, small net and a few other tools so it is worth it. Also love the ability to quickly change tools with snap on head feature! I've used this tool a couple of times now cleaning the glass on my 125gal tank. This works significantly better than any handheld scraper I've ever owned. I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. It literally took me 5 mins to scrape my 55 gal. I was surprised at how heavy and well built this is.

  • Sungrow Aquarium Glass scrubber, Long Handheld Tool Reduces Scrubbing Time to Half, Keep Hands Dry, Removes Thickest Residue, Frequent Tank Maintenance
  • ✔ REMOVES EVEN THE MOST STUBBORN SPOTS --- The unique design of this fish tank scrubber will remove all the dirt and debris. Even if you have been neglecting to clear the kelp, this metal scrubber will give your tank a fast makeover, leaving it clear.

To protect your fingers from any untoward incident, it comes with a plastic cover. The best part is that it breaks down for easy storing. This is a very good alternative than magnetic scrubbers and scouring pads.

"This works great."

Due to the tank being built in, it's very difficult to clean from the back. I like that the length is adjustable, too. This cleaning tool set has been working wonderfully. But for the price I paid, I don't mind water running down my arm one bit. Great product and worth every penny. I bought this based on reviews and sure enough it took care of the algae with ease. Best aquarium cleaner if you ask me.

Works way better than the Mag-Float I was using. I know alot of people feel this is junk. Possibly a plastic case for storage around this wet environment. If I applied too much pressure, the handle would snap. I have a 24 inch deep tank that requires I stand on a chair to get to the top. I have 2 of these a Nano flipper for my EVO 13.

I was surprised at how heavy and well built this is. This is a good deal and perfect all in one package for cleaning aquariums. I have used the scrapper and it removed the algae from my tank's glass very easily. The one hassle to this scraper is that mounting the blade can be very tricky.
