"Couldn't do that before!"

The telescoping handle is nice and makes cleaning deeper tanks a breeze. I have a 5-gallon fish tank with my beta in it. If you are too close to the top water will splash. If it was half the size and maybe came with two extenders then it would be better. I have bigger fish and the net is for smaller. Best aquarium cleaner if you ask me. I bought this size algae scrubber because I have a 13.

"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.

"I will say this was 2-2."

My husband has even tried to remove it. There are two minor drawbacks to using this tool to scrape algae though. If I applied too much pressure, the handle would snap. It's designed nice, very solid and it's a decent price, what's not to like about it. The real bonus is it actually works. I have used the scrapper and it removed the algae from my tank's glass very easily. The first one lasted for several years.

"A nice feature!"

Use them both every day and have zero problems with it. This is a nice tool to have is you have an aquarium. I like that the length is adjustable, too. So much better than any other ways I have tried. This set comes with acouple different cleaning tools. That I haven't seen in any other tool set. How can a pandemic cause algae you ask.

"Very pleased."

It is very handy for keeping my 30-gal freshwater aquarium clean. I ordered different replacement blades to use instead. Or my white bubbler across the back of my tank without this scraper. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface. My smaller aquarium has a back aside that the brush can easily clean. The long handle made it very easy to get everywhere. Great for the price as I was not expecting something extremely heavy duty.

"I got the small."

I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. The quality of the product is better than I had expected for the price. I don't have that worry with this scraper. Hope this review helps a few hobbyists out there. Everything is easy to put together and use. The hole in some attachments must be a little bigger on some than others. Small and inconspicuous in the tank.

"This works great."

But for the price I paid, I don't mind water running down my arm one bit. Guess how I learned that mistake lol. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface. This scrapper will trap some of it making it easier to get out of the tank. Nano magnet is a little weak on 6 mm WaterBox, but still works fine. I placed it on the rod and cleaned the corners of my tank. I know alot of people feel this is junk.

"Recommended!"

It needs the extra support of the thicker pole. The only thing i wish was different is that the net was bigger. This little pad was just what was needed for cleaning up our 2 gallon bowl. It works great for my tank, you may want to get a bigger pad for larger tanks. I'm glad I purchase it as it also comes with a net. If I applied too much pressure, the handle would snap. I don't have that worry with this scraper.

"I like it."

But since no directions come, I thought I might mention it. And I don't often say things like that. The head of the scrapper has no sharp or hard edges to scratch the glass. My aquarium recently had a bad algae outbreak. The hole in some attachments must be a little bigger on some than others. Guess how I learned that mistake lol. I have a fairly deep sand bed in my 90 gallon reef tank.

"Worth EVERY penny!"

That has an impact on how well this brush works. This works significantly better than any handheld scraper I've ever owned. And i love that the handle is so long, I have a very deep tank. And 23 inches roughly when its fully retracted. The one hassle to this scraper is that mounting the blade can be very tricky. So much better than any other ways I have tried. It is very handy for keeping my 30-gal freshwater aquarium clean.

"Just amazing!"

I have two aquariums, a 49 gallon tank and a 10 gallon tank. There are two minor drawbacks to using this tool to scrape algae though. The telescoping handle is nice and makes cleaning deeper tanks a breeze. I hand no issues with it scratching the glass. The net of this set is a little small for my uses. I have a 24 inch deep tank that requires I stand on a chair to get to the top. Works way better than the Mag-Float I was using.

"This works great."

If you have an aquarium with algae, use razer to clean them off the glass. I bought this tool to help maintain my aquarium. It is way overkill for that small tank but I get the job done very quick. It needs the extra support of the thicker pole. This scrapper will trap some of it making it easier to get out of the tank. Don't bother with the other brands. You have to squeeze the ends and the cover slides off and the razor blade is exposed.

"Highly recommend!"

It's an easy to use pad that removed algae fairly easily from the acrylic. That piece makes getting the side walls a bit harder. I was surprised at how heavy and well built this is. Great for the price as I was not expecting something extremely heavy duty. This scrapper will trap some of it making it easier to get out of the tank. I've been recommending it to all my friends with aquariums. The telescoping handle is nice and makes cleaning deeper tanks a breeze.

Hope this review helps a few hobbyists out there. It also works well at knocking off buildup from my decorations without removing them. I've used this tool a couple of times now cleaning the glass on my 125gal tank. Due to the tank being built in, it's very difficult to clean from the back.
