"Love this!"

The one hassle to this scraper is that mounting the blade can be very tricky. The razer blade scraping tool is great as well. I bought this tool to help maintain my aquarium. This is a nice tool to have is you have an aquarium. I order this Extendable 5 in 1Fish Tank Cleaning Set. When this one wears out, I will replace it with the same brand. Possibly I could keep the filters in my small tank.

NICREW Final Thoughts

"This work really well."

There are multiple attachments which gives options on what to clean with. This works significantly better than any handheld scraper I've ever owned. This is a good deal and perfect all in one package for cleaning aquariums. And when i drain water out i can use this without getting wet. I ordered different replacement blades to use instead. This cleaning tool set has been working wonderfully. This scrapper will trap some of it making it easier to get out of the tank.

"Lots of spare blades."

I have no idea how this would hold up to much larger tanks. I have bigger fish and the net is for smaller. 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. It is way overkill for that small tank but I get the job done very quick. The razer blade scraping tool is great as well. It actually made cleaning the glass enjoyable.

Houkr Final Thoughts

"Works very well."

Don't bother with the other brands. You have to squeeze the ends and the cover slides off and the razor blade is exposed. And I don't often say things like that. Hope this review helps a few hobbyists out there. I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface. It also works well at knocking off buildup from my decorations without removing them.

Gulfstream Tropical 49100025 First Impressions

"Worth its weight in gold!"

Works way better than the Mag-Float I was using. My only gripe is that the blade is not replaceable. I have two aquariums, a 49 gallon tank and a 10 gallon tank. But for the price I paid, I don't mind water running down my arm one bit. When this one wears out, I will replace it with the same brand. If you have an aquarium with algae, use razer to clean them off the glass. 5 inch wide razor blade to scrub algae off of the tank.

Gulfstream Tropical 49100025 Final Thoughts

"I don't use it."

I could even clean the back glass by reaching over the top of the tank. It's designed nice, very solid and it's a decent price, what's not to like about it. If they had an extension that'd be nice. There's another tool that I used to help reset the plants. Easy to install the blade, seems to be well made. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface. The Gravel rake make it so much easier aswell to level out the rock.

Kent Marine 158361 First Impressions

"Very impressed."

If you wait months, it gets so thick and tough, it's very hard to remove. Overall this was a very good purchase and good investment. The telescoping handle is nice and makes cleaning deeper tanks a breeze. This tool has enough reach and is plenty strong enough. I'm glad I purchase it as it also comes with a net. This set works great for the portrait marine land 5+ gallon kit glass tank. The only down side would be that the main section that holds the blade is a bit long.

"Just amazing!"

If you think this review was helpful, please don't forget to vote. I bought this tool to help maintain my aquarium. I would not have an aquarium without this. The only down side would be that the main section that holds the blade is a bit long. I bought this based on reviews and sure enough it took care of the algae with ease. The first one lasted for several years. I would have gone to the next size up to get the extra pressure on the inside glass.

AQUANEAT CS-A864 First Impressions

"Worth EVERY penny!"

The real bonus is it actually works. It works awesome and does everything I wanted it too and more. The net of this set is a little small for my uses. But for the price I paid, I don't mind water running down my arm one bit. Interchangeable pads and a water release for the rod. It is quite sturdy and made of stainless steel so it should last a long time. Small and inconspicuous in the tank.

"Lots of spare blades."

I have bigger fish and the net is for smaller. A little more tomorrow and the next day and almost all the algae will be gone. I bought this tool to help maintain my aquarium. One or two passes and glass was spotless. Great for the price as I was not expecting something extremely heavy duty. This tool has enough reach and is plenty strong enough. 5 inch wide razor blade to scrub algae off of the tank.

"Highly recommend!"

I have a redsea 170 that is only about 35 gallons. This set comes with acouple different cleaning tools. The first one lasted for several years. I order this Extendable 5 in 1Fish Tank Cleaning Set. I have used it a lot and really like it. Or my white bubbler across the back of my tank without this scraper. Aside from that, I'm happy with the product!

"Wait for it."

This kit is great if you have pretty deep aquarium or shorter arms. If they had an extension that'd be nice. I've been recommending it to all my friends with aquariums. The sand cleaner accessory is cool, because it helps with routine cleanup. Cuts through built up algea in hard to reach places with no problems! I hand no issues with it scratching the glass. I found the key to keeping the algae under control is to clean the glass regularly.

"Very easy to use."

That I haven't seen in any other tool set. This little pad was just what was needed for cleaning up our 2 gallon bowl. This aquarium scraper is so much better than the old one. If it was half the size and maybe came with two extenders then it would be better. Overall this was a very good purchase and good investment. Great product and worth every penny. I know alot of people feel this is junk.

This is a nice tool to have is you have an aquarium. That piece makes getting the side walls a bit harder. I bought this size algae scrubber because I have a 13.

Also love the ability to quickly change tools with snap on head feature! For stubborn spots, you may need to scrub a bit harder.
