"Seriously, this rocks."

The sand cleaner accessory is cool, because it helps with routine cleanup. But since no directions come, I thought I might mention it. I don't have that worry with this scraper. It's also significantly larger so cleaning takes less time. The sand cleaner accessory is cool, because it helps with routine cleanup. I'm glad I purchase it as it also comes with a net.

POPETPOP Final Thoughts

"I have a small 3."

If you are too close to the top water will splash. Just a great set of tools for the price. But since no directions come, I thought I might mention it. But for the price I paid, I don't mind water running down my arm one bit. I bought this because I have flowerhorns and they bite. I found the key to keeping the algae under control is to clean the glass regularly. This set works great for the portrait marine land 5+ gallon kit glass tank.

"Very easy to use."

The sand cleaner accessory is cool, because it helps with routine cleanup. Nano magnet is a little weak on 6 mm WaterBox, but still works fine. It works great for my tank, you may want to get a bigger pad for larger tanks. If you have an aquarium with algae, use razer to clean them off the glass. I have a redsea 170 that is only about 35 gallons. The quality of the product is better than I had expected for the price. You have to squeeze the ends and the cover slides off and the razor blade is exposed.

"6G Betta tank."

Great for the price as I was not expecting something extremely heavy duty. For stubborn spots, you may need to scrub a bit harder. It's an aquascape aquarium by the way. That piece makes getting the side walls a bit harder. Overall this was a very good purchase and good investment. So that is the first tool head I grabbed was the corner cleaner.

It works awesome and does everything I wanted it too and more. My aquarium recently had a bad algae outbreak. Just a great set of tools for the price. I bought this because I have flowerhorns and they bite. Hope this review helps a few hobbyists out there. I used a scrubber with little result.

When this one wears out, I will replace it with the same brand. This scrapper will trap some of it making it easier to get out of the tank. Dont have to get wet, its very long, about 33 inches at maximum extension. One or two passes and glass was spotless. There's another tool that I used to help reset the plants.

I bought this size algae scrubber because I have a 13. Overall this was a very good purchase and good investment. It works great for my tank, you may want to get a bigger pad for larger tanks.

"Recommended, good buy."

Easy to install the blade, seems to be well made. Extremely happy I made the purchase. Also love the ability to quickly change tools with snap on head feature! I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. Works way better than the Mag-Float I was using. 5 and a medium sized one for my 100 gallon reef tank. The quality of the product is better than I had expected for the price.

"I got the small."

It comes with a big net, small net and a few other tools so it is worth it. Also love the ability to quickly change tools with snap on head feature! I've used this tool a couple of times now cleaning the glass on my 125gal tank. This works significantly better than any handheld scraper I've ever owned. I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. It literally took me 5 mins to scrape my 55 gal. I was surprised at how heavy and well built this is.

  • ✔ REMOVES EVEN THE MOST STUBBORN SPOTS --- The unique design of this fish tank scrubber will remove all the dirt and debris. Even if you have been neglecting to clear the kelp, this metal scrubber will give your tank a fast makeover, leaving it clear.

To protect your fingers from any untoward incident, it comes with a plastic cover. The best part is that it breaks down for easy storing.

"This works great."

Due to the tank being built in, it's very difficult to clean from the back. I like that the length is adjustable, too. This cleaning tool set has been working wonderfully. But for the price I paid, I don't mind water running down my arm one bit. Great product and worth every penny. I bought this based on reviews and sure enough it took care of the algae with ease. Best aquarium cleaner if you ask me.

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.

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.
