"You missed a spot!"

This scrapper will trap some of it making it easier to get out of the tank. The head of the scrapper has no sharp or hard edges to scratch the glass. Use them both every day and have zero problems with it. It's also significantly larger so cleaning takes less time. And I don't often say things like that. I would not have an aquarium without this. Interchangeable pads and a water release for the rod.

"Very easy to use."

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.

"They are the best."

You don't need a lot of force, just patience. There are multiple attachments which gives options on what to clean with. This kit is great if you have pretty deep aquarium or shorter arms. If you wait months, it gets so thick and tough, it's very hard to remove. I bought this because I have flowerhorns and they bite. My smaller aquarium has a back aside that the brush can easily clean. Since I knew this I am happy with it.

"Scarper side is great."

I would not have an aquarium without this. It comes with a big net, small net and a few other tools so it is worth it. Possibly I could keep the filters in my small tank. This set works great for the portrait marine land 5+ gallon kit glass tank. I could even clean the back glass by reaching over the top of the tank. It is very easy to swap the heads with very convenient locking system. The angled head of this thing makes all the difference.

"Recommended!"

I bought this size algae scrubber because I have a 13. If you are too close to the top water will splash. I'm glad I purchase it as it also comes with a net. It is way overkill for that small tank but I get the job done very quick. My aquarium recently had a bad algae outbreak. This tool has enough reach and is plenty strong enough. I have a 55 gallon tank and this does a very good job removing algae from the glass.

5 and a medium sized one for my 100 gallon reef tank. Everything is easy to put together and use. Like the old kids toy dinosaur head that closes mouth by squeezing. This is my second purchase of this scraper. It's designed nice, very solid and it's a decent price, what's not to like about it. I'm glad I purchase it as it also comes with a net. Possibly I could keep the filters in my small tank.

"Incredible!"

Or my white bubbler across the back of my tank without this scraper. Easy to install the blade, seems to be well made. Nano magnet is a little weak on 6 mm WaterBox, but still works fine. I would have gone to the next size up to get the extra pressure on the inside glass. It literally took me 5 mins to scrape my 55 gal. The quality of the product is better than I had expected for the price. The net of this set is a little small for my uses.

  • Sungrow Aquarium Glass Cleaner, Long Handheld Tool Cuts Cleaning Time to Half, Keep Hands Dry, Sharp Blade to Remove Thickest Residue, Frequent Tank Maintenance
  • ✔ REMOVES EVEN THE MOST STUBBORN STAINS --- The unique design of this fish tank razor scrubber will cut through and remove all the dirt and debris. Even if you have been neglecting to clear the kelp, this metal scrubber will give your tank a fast makeover, leaving it clear.
  • ✔ STAINLESS STEEL HEAVY-DUTY CONSTRUCTION --- The glass surface scrubber is made out of stainless steel. Use this dirt remover for years to come. To protect your fingers from the accidental cut, it comes with a plastic blade cover. The best part is that it breaks down for easy storing. This is a very good alternative than magnetic scrubbers and scouring pads.

This handle will save your entire arm from getting wet next time you clear the mess from your tank. The extended arm makes scrubbing any deep tank easy. So make your life easier and say GOODBYE to standing on a chair or ladder and scrubbing the tank for hours.
  • ✔ SUITABLE ONLY FOR GLASS AQUARIUMS --- The handheld razor is sharp, yet it will not affect your glass aquarium in any way. You can simply remove all the unwanted dirt, leaving the glass pristine. Just hold it firm and go slow. Do not use the acrylic tank as the double-edged razor blade might scratch it.
  • ✔ REPLACEABLE RAZOR BLADE --- If you find that the razor blade is not doing its job as well as before, you can remove and replace the blade (sold separately) with a brand new sharp blade (sold separately) to remove anything from your tank.

"Very sturdy."

I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. If you think this review was helpful, please don't forget to vote. This works significantly better than any handheld scraper I've ever owned. I bought this tool to help maintain my aquarium. I have a fairly deep sand bed in my 90 gallon reef tank. That piece makes getting the side walls a bit harder. I have two aquariums, a 49 gallon tank and a 10 gallon tank.
