"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.

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.

"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.

And 23 inches roughly when its fully retracted. Small and inconspicuous in the tank. If you think this review was helpful, please don't forget to vote. How can a pandemic cause algae you ask.

I have a redsea 170 that is only about 35 gallons. The only down side would be that the main section that holds the blade is a bit long. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface. 5 and a medium sized one for my 100 gallon reef tank. This cleaning tool set has been working wonderfully. It needs the extra support of the thicker pole. If I applied too much pressure, the handle would snap.
