"Worth its weight in gold!"

It's also significantly larger so cleaning takes less time. I have two aquariums, a 49 gallon tank and a 10 gallon tank. If it was half the size and maybe came with two extenders then it would be better. It literally took me 5 mins to scrape my 55 gal. It's also significantly larger so cleaning takes less time. And 23 inches roughly when its fully retracted. I like that the length is adjustable, too.

  • Jasonwell Magnetic Aquarium Fish Tank Glass Algae Glass Cleaner Scrubber Floating Clean Brush
  • Clean algae and scum off of the inside of your aquarium the easy, fun way!
  • Strong magnetic forces cause the inside cleaning brush to follow the outside handle. Just wipe the outside, and the inside is cleaned!
  • The inside piece floats, so if it becomes separated from the outside piece, it's easy to retrieve.
  • Simply drag the no-scratch, felt-lined handle and inside your aquarium, the scrubber follows, cleaning as it goes
  • Important: Made for common glass fish tank, not for acrylic and low iron glass. Please choose the size by the thickness of your fish tank glass. The larger, the stronger the magnet.

Jasonwell Final Thoughts

"Works great."

If you are too close to the top water will splash. I have used the scrapper and it removed the algae from my tank's glass very easily. It's designed nice, very solid and it's a decent price, what's not to like about it. I order this Extendable 5 in 1Fish Tank Cleaning Set. There are multiple attachments which gives options on what to clean with. The long handle made it very easy to get everywhere. I order this Extendable 5 in 1Fish Tank Cleaning Set.

"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.

This tool has enough reach and is plenty strong enough. Great for the price as I was not expecting something extremely heavy duty. The pipe cleaner attachment was very helpful in getting inside the UGF. I have a redsea 170 that is only about 35 gallons. I have no idea how this would hold up to much larger tanks.

Lefunpets Final Thoughts

"Perfect for nano tank!"

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. This little pad was just what was needed for cleaning up our 2 gallon bowl.

"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.

"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.

"It will last much longer."

But this simple tool does the job with no chemicals. For stubborn spots, you may need to scrub a bit harder. And i love that the handle is so long, I have a very deep tank. I have no idea how this would hold up to much larger tanks. The first one lasted for several years. Don't bother with the other brands. I have used it a lot and really like it.

"Amazingly simple to use."

This set works great for the portrait marine land 5+ gallon kit glass tank. Due to the tank being built in, it's very difficult to clean from the back. Aside from that, I'm happy with the product! The only down side would be that the main section that holds the blade is a bit long. If you hate cleaning and scrubbing your tank this thing is for you. Due to the tank being built in, it's very difficult to clean from the back. I bought this based on reviews and sure enough it took care of the algae with ease.

"Great buy!"

The telescoping handle is nice and makes cleaning deeper tanks a breeze. My only gripe is that the blade is not replaceable. The hole in some attachments must be a little bigger on some than others. I've used this tool a couple of times now cleaning the glass on my 125gal tank. I found the key to keeping the algae under control is to clean the glass regularly. I ordered different replacement blades to use instead. This scraper is for an acrylic aquarium.

"Awesome solution!"

I have a fairly deep sand bed in my 90 gallon reef tank. I bought this based on reviews and sure enough it took care of the algae with ease. I have bigger fish and the net is for smaller. The sand cleaner accessory is cool, because it helps with routine cleanup. I placed it on the rod and cleaned the corners of my tank. There are two minor drawbacks to using this tool to scrape algae though. This aquarium scraper is so much better than the old one.
