"Would buy again."

This scrapper will trap some of it making it easier to get out of the tank. The only issue is there is no blade cover provided for storage. The hole in some attachments must be a little bigger on some than others. Add in a gravel vac and you'd basically have a complete cleaning kit. But for the price I paid, I don't mind water running down my arm one bit. 5 gallon fluval EVO tank running a saltwater set up. There are two minor drawbacks to using this tool to scrape algae though.

"Works very well."

This scraper is for an acrylic aquarium. The head of the scrapper has no sharp or hard edges to scratch the glass. Happy with the set and all the different interchangeable attachments. If you think this review was helpful, please don't forget to vote. I have used it a lot and really like it. A little more tomorrow and the next day and almost all the algae will be gone. It literally took me 5 mins to scrape my 55 gal.

2. Sera Replacement Blades for Glass Cleaner Aquarium Algae Scrapers

"My back thanks you."

Interchangeable pads and a water release for the rod. The angled head of this thing makes all the difference. Overall this was a very good purchase and good investment. The only issue is there is no blade cover provided for storage. A little more tomorrow and the next day and almost all the algae will be gone. There's another tool that I used to help reset the plants. Everything is easy to put together and use.

"This works great."

5 and a medium sized one for my 100 gallon reef tank. When this one wears out, I will replace it with the same brand. The quality of the product is better than I had expected for the price. This is my second purchase of this scraper. Works way better than the Mag-Float I was using. My only gripe is that the blade is not replaceable. Like the old kids toy dinosaur head that closes mouth by squeezing.

"A must-have."

I ordered different replacement blades to use instead. It works great for my tank, you may want to get a bigger pad for larger tanks. I bought this tool to help maintain my aquarium. It also works well at knocking off buildup from my decorations without removing them. It's an easy to use pad that removed algae fairly easily from the acrylic. Due to the tank being built in, it's very difficult to clean from the back. That piece makes getting the side walls a bit harder.

"Lots of spare blades."

Or my white bubbler across the back of my tank without this scraper. Possibly a plastic case for storage around this wet environment. It's an easy to use pad that removed algae fairly easily from the acrylic. You don't need a lot of force, just patience. I have a redsea 170 that is only about 35 gallons. I bought this size algae scrubber because I have a 13. 5 and a medium sized one for my 100 gallon reef tank.

"Great product."

The one hassle to this scraper is that mounting the blade can be very tricky. This cleaning tool set has been working wonderfully. For stubborn spots, you may need to scrub a bit harder. I have a 5-gallon fish tank with my beta in it. This little pad was just what was needed for cleaning up our 2 gallon bowl. If you wait months, it gets so thick and tough, it's very hard to remove. Add in a gravel vac and you'd basically have a complete cleaning kit.

"Over all very good."

This set really save me lots of time when I clean my aquarium. Use them both every day and have zero problems with it. I would not have an aquarium without this. I bought this because I have flowerhorns and they bite. How can a pandemic cause algae you ask. I have no idea how this would hold up to much larger tanks. The sand cleaner accessory is cool, because it helps with routine cleanup.

"Amazingly simple to use."

Best aquarium cleaner if you ask me. Or my white bubbler across the back of my tank without this scraper. I have a redsea 170 that is only about 35 gallons. I used a scrubber with little result. I found the key to keeping the algae under control is to clean the glass regularly. So much better than any other ways I have tried. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface.

"That was not the case."

And i love that the handle is so long, I have a very deep tank. 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 hate cleaning and scrubbing your tank this thing is for you. The only issue is there is no blade cover provided for storage. Best aquarium cleaner if you ask me.

"It is The One!"

This tool has enough reach and is plenty strong enough. The first one lasted for several years. Cuts through built up algea in hard to reach places with no problems! The real bonus is it actually works. I placed it on the rod and cleaned the corners of my tank. I have two aquariums, a 49 gallon tank and a 10 gallon tank. But this simple tool does the job with no chemicals.
