Questions & Answers

2 Customer Questions


What is the width of the cleaning pad itself?
Answer by ChewyJun 22, 2021
The measurements of the cleaning pad of API ALGAE SCRAPER are 3 x 3 x 1 inches.

Can this be used on the thinner plastic tanks like the API 360 view 6 gallon tank?
Answer by ChewyOct 27, 2017
This API scraper is designed for Acrylic tanks only since they're scratch resistance. The API Aquariums Tropical 360 View Aquarium Starter Kit in the 6-gallon is constructed of crystal clear, impact-resistant acrylic so this scraper would work for that tank.

Easy to use for BiOrb

I read that this can scratch the acrylic so I used the soft cleaning cloth that comes with the new filter and this scraper for the angle to reach the inside surfaces. I did not use the attached sponge on the surface to scrub, only to hold the cleaning cloth agains the side of the tank. It worked great!

Chewy Rocks

Wonderful service. No matter my needs - be it aquarium needs, foods for either my cat or dog, the service is prompt and accurate. I didn’t receive an order in the past & they kindly sent a repeat order at no charge. Such a blessing. You’re appreciated at CHEWY! God bless you for your exemplary service and standards.

Easy to handle

It's really easy to handle, works as advertised. it's BIGGER than I thought since I used to have an old one for glass tank and assumed they would be of the same size.

Beware sponge fibers

I washed and washed the sponge, as directed, before trying to use it in my aquarium. Despite running water through it repeatedly, as soon as I put it in the aquarium, fibers of the material spread all over the tank. I don’t know if it is cheap materials or a bad batch. I had to try to get out as much as I could so as not to harm my fish. I’m still in shock that API could use such cheap materials that could harm our pets.

Works okay

Handle is a bit long, but other than that, it works fine to clear the algae from the sides of my 10-gallon aquarium.

Not Really Extra Long

It does the job but the handle is only 14.5" not 18" like I thought. Even then entire product is only 17". I assumed the handle part was 18". My mistake for assuming.
