Sera 8849 First Impressions

"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.

Sera 8849 Final Thoughts

"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

Sera 8846 First Impressions

"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.

"Great buy!"

I bought this because I have flowerhorns and they bite. If you wait months, it gets so thick and tough, it's very hard to remove. Use them both every day and have zero problems with it. I could even clean the back glass by reaching over the top of the tank. The long handle made it very easy to get everywhere. 5 and a medium sized one for my 100 gallon reef tank. But this simple tool does the job with no chemicals.

"A must-have."

This works significantly better than any handheld scraper I've ever owned. I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. I would not have an aquarium without this. I bought this size algae scrubber because I have a 13. Hope this review helps a few hobbyists out there. I bought this size algae scrubber because I have a 13.

"I'm not using the blade."

It's designed nice, very solid and it's a decent price, what's not to like about it. This set really save me lots of time when I clean my aquarium. I hand no issues with it scratching the glass. My smaller aquarium has a back aside that the brush can easily clean. It works awesome and does everything I wanted it too and more. Since I knew this I am happy with it. You have to squeeze the ends and the cover slides off and the razor blade is exposed.

5. Penn Plax Wizard Aquarium Algae Scraper

Penn-Plax WZ1 First Impressions

"Overall a great scraper."

Hope this review helps a few hobbyists out there. I found the key to keeping the algae under control is to clean the glass regularly. It's designed nice, very solid and it's a decent price, what's not to like about it. For stubborn spots, you may need to scrub a bit harder. The pipe cleaner attachment was very helpful in getting inside the UGF. I have 2 of these a Nano flipper for my EVO 13. I have two aquariums, a 49 gallon tank and a 10 gallon tank.

"I rarely use this one."

The razer blade scraping tool is great as well. I would not have an aquarium without this. I have a redsea 170 that is only about 35 gallons. This kit is great if you have pretty deep aquarium or shorter arms. I'm glad I purchase it as it also comes with a net. The only down side would be that the main section that holds the blade is a bit long. You have to squeeze the ends and the cover slides off and the razor blade is exposed.

"They are the best."

That I haven't seen in any other tool set. There are multiple attachments which gives options on what to clean with. I have used the scrapper and it removed the algae from my tank's glass very easily. It works great for my tank, you may want to get a bigger pad for larger tanks. The real bonus is it actually works. I bought this tool to help maintain my aquarium. 5 inch wide razor blade to scrub algae off of the tank.

This set comes with acouple different cleaning tools. I bought this based on reviews and sure enough it took care of the algae with ease. Easy to install the blade, seems to be well made. The rake came in handy to smooth the gravel after the gravel cleaning. Works way better than the Mag-Float I was using. So much better than any other ways I have tried. One or two passes and glass was spotless.
