"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.

Dreamyth First Impressions

"Great magnetic strength."

My smaller aquarium has a back aside that the brush can easily clean. I bought this because I have flowerhorns and they bite. Easy to install the blade, seems to be well made. It is way overkill for that small tank but I get the job done very quick. Works way better than the Mag-Float I was using. I used a scrubber with little result. Nano magnet is a little weak on 6 mm WaterBox, but still works fine.

"Small but mighty!"

The quality of the product is better than I had expected for the price. For stubborn spots, you may need to scrub a bit harder. When this one wears out, I will replace it with the same brand. 5 inch wide razor blade to scrub algae off of the tank. I have used it a lot and really like it. I have a 5-gallon fish tank with my beta in it. I like that the length is adjustable, too.

"Works perfectly."

The telescoping handle is nice and makes cleaning deeper tanks a breeze. I ordered different replacement blades to use instead. I don't have that worry with this scraper. It's an easy to use pad that removed algae fairly easily from the acrylic. Since I knew this I am happy with it. If I applied too much pressure, the handle would snap. This scraper is for an acrylic aquarium.

"Wait for it."

Interchangeable pads and a water release for the rod. The sand cleaner accessory is cool, because it helps with routine cleanup. I was surprised at how heavy and well built this is. This aquarium scraper is so much better than the old one. It works great for my tank, you may want to get a bigger pad for larger tanks. Possibly I could keep the filters in my small tank. If it was half the size and maybe came with two extenders then it would be better.

"Lots of spare blades."

The net of this set is a little small for my uses. It actually made cleaning the glass enjoyable. So that is the first tool head I grabbed was the corner cleaner. Use them both every day and have zero problems with it. I've been recommending it to all my friends with aquariums. But for the price I paid, I don't mind water running down my arm one bit.

"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.

"Scarper side is great."

I would not have an aquarium without this. It comes with a big net, small net and a few other tools so it is worth it. Possibly I could keep the filters in my small tank. This set works great for the portrait marine land 5+ gallon kit glass tank. I could even clean the back glass by reaching over the top of the tank. It is very easy to swap the heads with very convenient locking system. The angled head of this thing makes all the difference.

Don't bother with the other brands. Small and inconspicuous in the tank. The head of the scrapper has no sharp or hard edges to scratch the glass. It's designed nice, very solid and it's a decent price, what's not to like about it. This kit is great if you have pretty deep aquarium or shorter arms.
