"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.
  • ✔ TWO BONUS HANDLES INCLUDED FOR EXTRA LENGTH --- Easily screw on the two additional pieces to lengthen the handle, at maximum length, it measures 25.5 inches. 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.

"Will buy again!"

You have to squeeze the ends and the cover slides off and the razor blade is exposed. But since no directions come, I thought I might mention it. And i love that the handle is so long, I have a very deep tank. The head of the scrapper has no sharp or hard edges to scratch the glass. Nano magnet is a little weak on 6 mm WaterBox, but still works fine. This scrapper will trap some of it making it easier to get out of the tank. This scraper is for an acrylic aquarium.

"Highly recommended."

I found the key to keeping the algae under control is to clean the glass regularly. If it was half the size and maybe came with two extenders then it would be better. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface. Cuts through built up algea in hard to reach places with no problems! I order this Extendable 5 in 1Fish Tank Cleaning Set. Also love the ability to quickly change tools with snap on head feature! The angled head of this thing makes all the difference.

It comes with a big net, small net and a few other tools so it is worth it. Also love the ability to quickly change tools with snap on head feature! I've used this tool a couple of times now cleaning the glass on my 125gal tank. 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. It literally took me 5 mins to scrape my 55 gal. I was surprised at how heavy and well built this is.

"This works great."

Due to the tank being built in, it's very difficult to clean from the back. I like that the length is adjustable, too. This cleaning tool set has been working wonderfully. But for the price I paid, I don't mind water running down my arm one bit. Great product and worth every penny. I bought this based on reviews and sure enough it took care of the algae with ease. Best aquarium cleaner if you ask me.

"Incredible invention!"

The quality of the product is better than I had expected for the price. Interchangeable pads and a water release for the rod. Hope this review helps a few hobbyists out there. It's an aquascape aquarium by the way. Extremely happy I made the purchase. My smaller aquarium has a back aside that the brush can easily clean. There are two minor drawbacks to using this tool to scrape algae though.

I have two aquariums, a 49 gallon tank and a 10 gallon tank. The telescoping handle is nice and makes cleaning deeper tanks a breeze.

It is very handy for keeping my 30-gal freshwater aquarium clean. The first one lasted for several years. The angled head of this thing makes all the difference. But for the price I paid, I don't mind water running down my arm one bit. I bought this tool to help maintain my aquarium. If I applied too much pressure, the handle would snap. You don't need a lot of force, just patience.

  • 【Floating Design】Magnetic brush scraper can be used interchangeably, one tool for two usages. The internal floating avoids the brush(the part in tank) sinking in the bottom of aquarium and makes it convenient to take it out of the tank
  • 【Different Sizes】The cleaning brushes come in different sizes and can be selected according to the size of your fish tank.
  • 【All Kinds of Tank Clean】The glass aquarium is equipped with a stainless steel brush head, and the acrylic fish tank is equipped with a plastic brush head to protect the fish tank. Which is suitable for all kinds of tank

This is my second purchase of this scraper. Possibly a plastic case for storage around this wet environment. I have bigger fish and the net is for smaller. Happy with the set and all the different interchangeable attachments. And 23 inches roughly when its fully retracted. For stubborn spots, you may need to scrub a bit harder. Guess how I learned that mistake lol.
