    great cleaner!

    By Ehuanochtli on Nov 17, 2021

    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.

    This is okay

    By Eric on Dec 17, 2019

    Works okay but sometimes requires some hard brushing as the algae doesn't just slide off like some plasic scrappers. I also do not like that it absorbs a lot of the water so it creates a mess when removing from the tank until it dries.

    Good purchase

    By on

    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

    By on

    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

    By on

    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

    By on

    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

    By on

    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.

    Good Manual Brush

    By on

    Good at getting rid of even the most stubborn glass algae. Will takes a few scrub overs at times but gets the job done well.

    Graet for big tanks!

    Since the arm is long and sturdy to clean my 75 gallon without getting my entire arm wet.

    Clunky but works

    By on

    It works. Short story long, it's big and awkward to use. Much more effective than the magnetic contraption I had been using. I just wish it was easier to maneuver.
