"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.

"For me that is a risk."

This tool was perfect for cleaning everything up. The pipe cleaner attachment was very helpful in getting inside the UGF. Add in a gravel vac and you'd basically have a complete cleaning kit. Also love the ability to quickly change tools with snap on head feature! That I haven't seen in any other tool set. One or two passes and glass was spotless. Keeps my aquarium looking crystal clean.

"It is Very strong."

The only down side would be that the main section that holds the blade is a bit long. One or two passes and glass was spotless. I bought this because I have flowerhorns and they bite. And 23 inches roughly when its fully retracted. Use them both every day and have zero problems with it. I like that the length is adjustable, too. And I don't often say things like that.

The head of the scrapper has no sharp or hard edges to scratch the glass. Guess how I learned that mistake lol. One or two passes and glass was spotless.

"Just amazing!"

It comes with a big net, small net and a few other tools so it is worth it. My husband has even tried to remove it. But for the price I paid, I don't mind water running down my arm one bit. Great for the price as I was not expecting something extremely heavy duty. It is way overkill for that small tank but I get the job done very quick. Best aquarium cleaner if you ask me. This is my second purchase of this scraper.

"Highly recommended."

Use them both every day and have zero problems with it. Everything is easy to put together and use. When this one wears out, I will replace it with the same brand. Nano magnet is a little weak on 6 mm WaterBox, but still works fine. The only down side would be that the main section that holds the blade is a bit long. It works awesome and does everything I wanted it too and more. My smaller aquarium has a back aside that the brush can easily clean.

"Long reach."

Just a great set of tools for the price. I would have gone to the next size up to get the extra pressure on the inside glass. The pipe cleaner attachment was very helpful in getting inside the UGF. When this one wears out, I will replace it with the same brand. It's designed nice, very solid and it's a decent price, what's not to like about it. Due to the tank being built in, it's very difficult to clean from the back. If I applied too much pressure, the handle would snap.

"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.

"Incredible!"

Or my white bubbler across the back of my tank without this scraper. Easy to install the blade, seems to be well made. Nano magnet is a little weak on 6 mm WaterBox, but still works fine. I would have gone to the next size up to get the extra pressure on the inside glass. It literally took me 5 mins to scrape my 55 gal. The quality of the product is better than I had expected for the price. The net of this set is a little small for my uses.

I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. If you think this review was helpful, please don't forget to vote. This works significantly better than any handheld scraper I've ever owned. I bought this tool to help maintain my aquarium. I have a fairly deep sand bed in my 90 gallon reef tank. That piece makes getting the side walls a bit harder. I have two aquariums, a 49 gallon tank and a 10 gallon tank.

Possibly I could keep the filters in my small tank. The hole in some attachments must be a little bigger on some than others.
