"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.

Seachem 67103202 Final Thoughts

"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.

"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.

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.

"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.

"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.

"Wait for it."

The only down side would be that the main section that holds the blade is a bit long. I bought this because I have flowerhorns and they bite. I like that the length is adjustable, too. How can a pandemic cause algae you ask. This cleaning tool set has been working wonderfully. You have to squeeze the ends and the cover slides off and the razor blade is exposed. There are multiple attachments which gives options on what to clean with.

"Don't increase the angle."

I would have gone to the next size up to get the extra pressure on the inside glass. 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 still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. If you hate cleaning and scrubbing your tank this thing is for you. And I don't often say things like that. Possibly a plastic case for storage around this wet environment.

And I don't often say things like that. I have bigger fish and the net is for smaller. This works significantly better than any handheld scraper I've ever owned. Interchangeable pads and a water release for the rod. Aside from that, I'm happy with the product! There are two minor drawbacks to using this tool to scrape algae though. I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water.
