Koller Products TM1239 Final Thoughts

"Recommended, good buy."

This set works great for the portrait marine land 5+ gallon kit glass tank. This work well at cleaning the glass and is a great price. Easy to install the blade, seems to be well made. I order this Extendable 5 in 1Fish Tank Cleaning Set. The sand cleaner accessory is cool, because it helps with routine cleanup. It is very handy for keeping my 30-gal freshwater aquarium clean. Extremely happy I made the purchase.

"Does its job."

Easy to install the blade, seems to be well made. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface. I used a scrubber with little result. Nano magnet is a little weak on 6 mm WaterBox, but still works fine. If they had an extension that'd be nice. I have a 5-gallon fish tank with my beta in it. I have bigger fish and the net is for smaller.

"It is Very strong."

The rake came in handy to smooth the gravel after the gravel cleaning. If you have an aquarium with algae, use razer to clean them off the glass. The angled head of this thing makes all the difference. I was surprised at how heavy and well built this is. My aquarium recently had a bad algae outbreak. Aside from that, I'm happy with the product! 5 inch wide razor blade to scrub algae off of the tank.

3. Stainless Steel Rust-Proof Scraper Aquarium Fish Plant Tank Cleaning Tool (45CM-Wide)

Fdit First Impressions

"Wait for it."

If you are too close to the top water will splash. 5 and a medium sized one for my 100 gallon reef tank. I hand no issues with it scratching the glass. There's another tool that I used to help reset the plants. How can a pandemic cause algae you ask. Like the old kids toy dinosaur head that closes mouth by squeezing. And when i drain water out i can use this without getting wet.

"No scrub, scrub, scrub."

5 gallon fluval EVO tank running a saltwater set up. Interchangeable pads and a water release for the rod. There are two minor drawbacks to using this tool to scrape algae though. There are multiple attachments which gives options on what to clean with. If they had an extension that'd be nice. I've been recommending it to all my friends with aquariums. But this simple tool does the job with no chemicals.

"Wait for it."

The only down side would be that the main section that holds the blade is a bit long. I bought this because I have flowerhorns and they bite. I like that the length is adjustable, too. How can a pandemic cause algae you ask. This cleaning tool set has been working wonderfully. You have to squeeze the ends and the cover slides off and the razor blade is exposed. There are multiple attachments which gives options on what to clean with.

"It is metal, after all."

I bought this because I have flowerhorns and they bite. Cuts through built up algea in hard to reach places with no problems! I have a 24 inch deep tank that requires I stand on a chair to get to the top. Add in a gravel vac and you'd basically have a complete cleaning kit. Possibly I could keep the filters in my small tank. Or my white bubbler across the back of my tank without this scraper. I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water.

"It is Very strong."

So that is the first tool head I grabbed was the corner cleaner. It is very handy for keeping my 30-gal freshwater aquarium clean. I have two aquariums, a 49 gallon tank and a 10 gallon tank. Just a great set of tools for the price. It is way overkill for that small tank but I get the job done very quick. Possibly a plastic case for storage around this wet environment. The head of the scrapper has no sharp or hard edges to scratch the glass.

"You missed a spot!"

It is very easy to swap the heads with very convenient locking system. This aquarium scraper is so much better than the old one. It comes with a big net, small net and a few other tools so it is worth it. It is way overkill for that small tank but I get the job done very quick. The long handle made it very easy to get everywhere. That piece makes getting the side walls a bit harder. Just a great set of tools for the price.

"It is The One!"

This tool has enough reach and is plenty strong enough. Possibly I could keep the filters in my small tank. So that is the first tool head I grabbed was the corner cleaner. This works significantly better than any handheld scraper I've ever owned. That piece makes getting the side walls a bit harder. This kit is great if you have pretty deep aquarium or shorter arms. Great for the price as I was not expecting something extremely heavy duty.

I've used this tool a couple of times now cleaning the glass on my 125gal tank. When this one wears out, I will replace it with the same brand. I was surprised at how heavy and well built this is.

"It is The One!"

My husband has even tried to remove it. When this one wears out, I will replace it with the same brand. If it was half the size and maybe came with two extenders then it would be better. I would not have an aquarium without this. But since no directions come, I thought I might mention it. If I applied too much pressure, the handle would snap. When this one wears out, I will replace it with the same brand.
