"I'm amazed."

It literally took me 5 mins to scrape my 55 gal. This scrapper will trap some of it making it easier to get out of the tank. It comes with a big net, small net and a few other tools so it is worth it. I ordered different replacement blades to use instead. This aquarium scraper is so much better than the old one. The only down side would be that the main section that holds the blade is a bit long. If you think this review was helpful, please don't forget to vote.

"Great price too."

The razer blade scraping tool is great as well. Also love the ability to quickly change tools with snap on head feature! And I don't often say things like that. There are multiple attachments which gives options on what to clean with. I have no idea how this would hold up to much larger tanks. I was surprised at how heavy and well built this is. The hole in some attachments must be a little bigger on some than others.

DaToo First Impressions

"Works perfectly."

I have used it a lot and really like it. It is very easy to swap the heads with very convenient locking system. It is way overkill for that small tank but I get the job done very quick. This little pad was just what was needed for cleaning up our 2 gallon bowl. The sand cleaner accessory is cool, because it helps with routine cleanup. The pipe cleaner attachment was very helpful in getting inside the UGF. It's an easy to use pad that removed algae fairly easily from the acrylic.

"I would buy this again."

This work well at cleaning the glass and is a great price. I found the key to keeping the algae under control is to clean the glass regularly. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface. I like that the length is adjustable, too. And when i drain water out i can use this without getting wet. Great for the price as I was not expecting something extremely heavy duty. I have a fairly deep sand bed in my 90 gallon reef tank.

"Lots of spare blades."

I would have gone to the next size up to get the extra pressure on the inside glass. I bought this size algae scrubber because I have a 13. And 23 inches roughly when its fully retracted. Works way better than the Mag-Float I was using. And when i drain water out i can use this without getting wet. It also works well at knocking off buildup from my decorations without removing them. This set really save me lots of time when I clean my aquarium.

If they had an extension that'd be nice. It is very easy to swap the heads with very convenient locking system. And when i drain water out i can use this without getting wet.

"Perfect for nano tank!"

I found the key to keeping the algae under control is to clean the glass regularly. This mini magnet cleaner is really a great deal. I placed it on the rod and cleaned the corners of my tank. I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. Everything is easy to put together and use. Extremely happy I made the purchase. I have a 55 gallon tank and this does a very good job removing algae from the glass.

"Highly recommended."

You have to squeeze the ends and the cover slides off and the razor blade is exposed. Nano magnet is a little weak on 6 mm WaterBox, but still works fine. Guess how I learned that mistake lol. You have to squeeze the ends and the cover slides off and the razor blade is exposed. Small and inconspicuous in the tank. I could even clean the back glass by reaching over the top of the tank.
