"Recommended, good buy."

I have a 55 gallon tank and this does a very good job removing algae from the glass. I used a scrubber with little result. I order this Extendable 5 in 1Fish Tank Cleaning Set. It's an easy to use pad that removed algae fairly easily from the acrylic. The telescoping handle is nice and makes cleaning deeper tanks a breeze. Interchangeable pads and a water release for the rod. This is a nice tool to have is you have an aquarium.

"I used this for my 1."

I have a fairly deep sand bed in my 90 gallon reef tank. This set really save me lots of time when I clean my aquarium. 5 gallon fluval EVO tank running a saltwater set up. Extremely happy I made the purchase. Small and inconspicuous in the tank. Or my white bubbler across the back of my tank without this scraper. This tool was perfect for cleaning everything up.

Seachem 3208 First Impressions

"Great value."

Due to the tank being built in, it's very difficult to clean from the back. The long handle made it very easy to get everywhere. If you wait months, it gets so thick and tough, it's very hard to remove. This set really save me lots of time when I clean my aquarium. Add in a gravel vac and you'd basically have a complete cleaning kit. The sand cleaner accessory is cool, because it helps with routine cleanup. It comes with a big net, small net and a few other tools so it is worth it.

"Love this!"

When this one wears out, I will replace it with the same brand. The angled head of this thing makes all the difference. I've been recommending it to all my friends with aquariums. I bought this tool to help maintain my aquarium. For stubborn spots, you may need to scrub a bit harder. Cuts through built up algea in hard to reach places with no problems!

"Good value for the money."

Hope this review helps a few hobbyists out there. The first one lasted for several years. The only down side would be that the main section that holds the blade is a bit long. Cuts through built up algea in hard to reach places with no problems! Also love the ability to quickly change tools with snap on head feature! I hand no issues with it scratching the glass. It works awesome and does everything I wanted it too and more.

"Magnet is strong."

Great for the price as I was not expecting something extremely heavy duty. You don't need a lot of force, just patience. It comes with a big net, small net and a few other tools so it is worth it. This little pad was just what was needed for cleaning up our 2 gallon bowl. This set comes with acouple different cleaning tools. I was surprised at how heavy and well built this is. I've used this tool a couple of times now cleaning the glass on my 125gal tank.

I found the key to keeping the algae under control is to clean the glass regularly. My aquarium recently had a bad algae outbreak. My aquarium recently had a bad algae outbreak.

"This is AMAZING."

I've used this tool a couple of times now cleaning the glass on my 125gal tank. I could even clean the back glass by reaching over the top of the tank. Works way better than the Mag-Float I was using. Everything is easy to put together and use. It's also significantly larger so cleaning takes less time. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface. Or my white bubbler across the back of my tank without this scraper.

"Couldn't do that before!"

Works way better than the Mag-Float I was using. This set works great for the portrait marine land 5+ gallon kit glass tank. Interchangeable pads and a water release for the rod. And 23 inches roughly when its fully retracted. Use them both every day and have zero problems with it. Easy to install the blade, seems to be well made. Add in a gravel vac and you'd basically have a complete cleaning kit.

"You missed a spot!"

I placed it on the rod and cleaned the corners of my tank. 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. The head of the scrapper has no sharp or hard edges to scratch the glass. So much better than any other ways I have tried. Guess how I learned that mistake lol. I bought this tool to help maintain my aquarium.

"Best algae scraper ever!"

This is a nice tool to have is you have an aquarium. The first one lasted for several years. Possibly a plastic case for storage around this wet environment. If it was half the size and maybe came with two extenders then it would be better. That has an impact on how well this brush works. The only issue is there is no blade cover provided for storage. It is very easy to swap the heads with very convenient locking system.

"I rarely use this one."

Also love the ability to quickly change tools with snap on head feature! When this one wears out, I will replace it with the same brand. So that is the first tool head I grabbed was the corner cleaner. I bought this based on reviews and sure enough it took care of the algae with ease. Overall this was a very good purchase and good investment. I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. Overall this was a very good purchase and good investment.

"It doesn't float."

I was surprised at how heavy and well built this is. This is a good deal and perfect all in one package for cleaning aquariums. I have used the scrapper and it removed the algae from my tank's glass very easily. The one hassle to this scraper is that mounting the blade can be very tricky. I have bigger fish and the net is for smaller. This is my second purchase of this scraper. It's an easy to use pad that removed algae fairly easily from the acrylic.

"A must-have."

I like that the length is adjustable, too. The head of the scrapper has no sharp or hard edges to scratch the glass. I hand no issues with it scratching the glass. If it was half the size and maybe came with two extenders then it would be better. It needs the extra support of the thicker pole. The first one lasted for several years. This works significantly better than any handheld scraper I've ever owned.
