"I love this scraper."

This set really save me lots of time when I clean my aquarium. I have no idea how this would hold up to much larger tanks. The one hassle to this scraper is that mounting the blade can be very tricky. And i love that the handle is so long, I have a very deep tank. If you hate cleaning and scrubbing your tank this thing is for you. That has an impact on how well this brush works. Dont have to get wet, its very long, about 33 inches at maximum extension.

Tetra 77344 Final Thoughts

"Overall a great scraper."

5 gallon fluval EVO tank running a saltwater set up. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface. So much better than any other ways I have tried. I would have gone to the next size up to get the extra pressure on the inside glass. Best aquarium cleaner if you ask me. One or two passes and glass was spotless. The long handle made it very easy to get everywhere.

"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.

"Very pleased."

Small and inconspicuous in the tank. I would not have an aquarium without this. It works awesome and does everything I wanted it too and more. If you are too close to the top water will splash. My aquarium recently had a bad algae outbreak. And I don't often say things like that. This is my second purchase of this scraper.

"For me that is a risk."

This tool was perfect for cleaning everything up. The pipe cleaner attachment was very helpful in getting inside the UGF. Add in a gravel vac and you'd basically have a complete cleaning kit. Also love the ability to quickly change tools with snap on head feature! That I haven't seen in any other tool set. One or two passes and glass was spotless. Keeps my aquarium looking crystal clean.

"Don't increase the angle."

I would have gone to the next size up to get the extra pressure on the inside glass. When this one wears out, I will replace it with the same brand. 5 inch wide razor blade to scrub algae off of the tank. I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water. If you hate cleaning and scrubbing your tank this thing is for you. And I don't often say things like that. Possibly a plastic case for storage around this wet environment.

"They work really well."

And I don't often say things like that. I have bigger fish and the net is for smaller. This works significantly better than any handheld scraper I've ever owned. Interchangeable pads and a water release for the rod. Aside from that, I'm happy with the product! There are two minor drawbacks to using this tool to scrape algae though. I still had to soak the hard to reach pieces in 1 part bleach, 5 parts water.

"Still love this thing!"

The razer blade scraping tool is great as well. This tool was perfect for cleaning everything up. This is my second purchase of this scraper. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface. I could even clean the back glass by reaching over the top of the tank. Also love the ability to quickly change tools with snap on head feature! It is very handy for keeping my 30-gal freshwater aquarium clean.

"Over all very good."

If you hate cleaning and scrubbing your tank this thing is for you. I have a 55 gallon tank and this does a very good job removing algae from the glass. If it was half the size and maybe came with two extenders then it would be better. But for the price I paid, I don't mind water running down my arm one bit. Overall this was a very good purchase and good investment. Cuts through built up algea in hard to reach places with no problems! Hope this review helps a few hobbyists out there.

"Awesome solution!"

I have a fairly deep sand bed in my 90 gallon reef tank. I bought this based on reviews and sure enough it took care of the algae with ease. I have bigger fish and the net is for smaller. The sand cleaner accessory is cool, because it helps with routine cleanup. I placed it on the rod and cleaned the corners of my tank. There are two minor drawbacks to using this tool to scrape algae though. This aquarium scraper is so much better than the old one.

"Amazingly simple to use."

Best aquarium cleaner if you ask me. Or my white bubbler across the back of my tank without this scraper. I have a redsea 170 that is only about 35 gallons. I used a scrubber with little result. I found the key to keeping the algae under control is to clean the glass regularly. So much better than any other ways I have tried. The magnet is stronger and best of all it finally floats to the surface.

"That was not the case."

And i love that the handle is so long, I have a very deep tank. Due to the tank being built in, it's very difficult to clean from the back. The long handle made it very easy to get everywhere. If you hate cleaning and scrubbing your tank this thing is for you. The only issue is there is no blade cover provided for storage. Best aquarium cleaner if you ask me. The angled head of this thing makes all the difference.
