Dry arms

This thing is fantastic. It isn't cheap made. The handle is long and sturdy and the pad on the end makes algae disappear. Should have gotten one years ago. No more sticking my arm in the tank.

Works great

One swipe & the algae is free from the glass. Works great & a perfect length for my tall 30 gallon tank. No real hard scrubbing needed, the brush does all the work.

Great for a tall tank

Nice long handle makes it easy to clean a tall tank without getting your sleeves soaked.

great cleaner!

This takes a bit of elbow grease but works well even when you let your fish tank get too dirty. The long handle is great, and the brush is quite sturdy and rigid.

Good purchase

Bought this for my daughter to clean her fish tank. She really likes it because she doesn’t have to bend over anymore! Gets the corners clean too.

Does it's job

Good product that does exactly what it's supposed to. Long enough for my 5 and 10 gallon tanks that I dont need to put my arms into the tank. I like that it easily gets algae in the corners too. It does soak up a good bit of water though so just make you sure you have a towel when you're done cleaning.

Efficient glass cleaning tool

I have been using a dish scrubber to clean algae off the tank walls each week. It's hard on my shoulders and back to reach into the corners of the tank. (A plant acquisition introduced green hair algae into my tank and it's hard to get off.) This scraper not only gets into the corners much more easily than my arms do, but is thinner so doesn't uproot the plants and is much better at getting the algae off the walls than the dish scrubber was.

Scrapes algae off in a jiffy

I got these to replace our ratty old algae scrapers and I am so glad I did. These work like a charm, making light work of scraping any algae off of the glass. Glad I bought two just in case one wears out!

Does the job

Good brush, does the job it's supposed to do. May need to scrub a little bit harder to get corners but I think there are other Types of Brushes for corners.
