"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.

"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.

"Perfect for nano tank!"

And when i drain water out i can use this without getting wet. It actually made cleaning the glass enjoyable. The rake came in handy to smooth the gravel after the gravel cleaning. This kit is great if you have pretty deep aquarium or shorter arms. The one hassle to this scraper is that mounting the blade can be very tricky. I hand no issues with it scratching the glass. Works way better than the Mag-Float I was using.

  • Magnetic Aquarium Fish Tank Cleaner, Fish Tank Glass Cleaner, Floating Clean Brush with Handle Design
  • Suitable for fish tanks with glass thickness less than 0.4 inch (10mm), More convenient and fast cleaning of dirt and scum in water tank.And it won't scratch the glass.This product can not only clean the fish tank, but also clean the windows and walls. It also has a very good effect.
  • The strong magnetic force makes the internal cleaning brush follow the external handle. Don't worry about the internal cleaning brush falling off,It will float on the water automatically. When you don't want to use it, you can pick it up directly from the water. It's very convenient.
  • The handle adopts bionic design, which has anti-skid effect and saves more labor when used. The head of the product has a scraper, which is made of harder plastic. It has a good effect on some dirty stains which are difficult to clean. The scraper can be disassembled separately and stored when it is not wanted to be used. It can also clean windows and floors.
  • When the cleaning is finished, no need to take it out. The brush is waterproof, just need to adsorb it on the glass, do not worry about brush damage.
  • Note: Because the product has too much magnetic force, it is necessary to rotate the two brushes 90 degrees and then separate them.Such a method can avoid injury.

"This work really well."

The only down side would be that the main section that holds the blade is a bit long. And when i drain water out i can use this without getting wet. I used a scrubber with little result. Possibly I could keep the filters in my small tank. It's an easy to use pad that removed algae fairly easily from the acrylic. If you are too close to the top water will splash. It also works well at knocking off buildup from my decorations without removing them.

"Great price too."

I have no idea how this would hold up to much larger tanks. Works way better than the Mag-Float I was using. It also works well at knocking off buildup from my decorations without removing them. I'm glad I purchase it as it also comes with a net. It needs the extra support of the thicker pole. I could even clean the back glass by reaching over the top of the tank. I placed it on the rod and cleaned the corners of my tank.

"It doesn't float."

It works great for my tank, you may want to get a bigger pad for larger tanks. There's another tool that I used to help reset the plants. This tool has enough reach and is plenty strong enough. The first one lasted for several years. This cleaning tool set has been working wonderfully. There's another tool that I used to help reset the plants. It comes with a big net, small net and a few other tools so it is worth it.

I have a redsea 170 that is only about 35 gallons. I have no idea how this would hold up to much larger tanks. So that is the first tool head I grabbed was the corner cleaner. This scraper is for an acrylic aquarium. And when i drain water out i can use this without getting wet. Works way better than the Mag-Float I was using. The only issue is there is no blade cover provided for storage.

"Very easy to use."

Everything is easy to put together and use. I have 2 of these a Nano flipper for my EVO 13. I've used this tool a couple of times now cleaning the glass on my 125gal tank. I bought this size algae scrubber because I have a 13. 5 gallon fluval EVO tank running a saltwater set up. I know alot of people feel this is junk. I have bigger fish and the net is for smaller.

That I haven't seen in any other tool set. This little pad was just what was needed for cleaning up our 2 gallon bowl. This aquarium scraper is so much better than the old one. If it was half the size and maybe came with two extenders then it would be better. Overall this was a very good purchase and good investment. Great product and worth every penny. I know alot of people feel this is junk.

"Just amazing!"

It comes with a big net, small net and a few other tools so it is worth it. My husband has even tried to remove it. But for the price I paid, I don't mind water running down my arm one bit. Great for the price as I was not expecting something extremely heavy duty. It is way overkill for that small tank but I get the job done very quick. Best aquarium cleaner if you ask me. This is my second purchase of this scraper.

But for the price I paid, I don't mind water running down my arm one bit. Guess how I learned that mistake lol. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface. This scrapper will trap some of it making it easier to get out of the tank. Nano magnet is a little weak on 6 mm WaterBox, but still works fine. I placed it on the rod and cleaned the corners of my tank. I know alot of people feel this is junk.

It needs the extra support of the thicker pole. The only thing i wish was different is that the net was bigger. This little pad was just what was needed for cleaning up our 2 gallon bowl. It works great for my tank, you may want to get a bigger pad for larger tanks. I'm glad I purchase it as it also comes with a net. If I applied too much pressure, the handle would snap. I don't have that worry with this scraper.
