    Beware sponge fibers

    By HarleyM on Mar 28, 2019

    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.

    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

    By on

    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.

    Works okay

    By on

    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

    By on

    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.

    It cleans the tank

    By on

    This is a simple item which works well. My last algae scraper lasted almost 10 years. Hopefully this one (and me) will last at least that long.
