Not Stainless

This will rust around the weld seams. I’ve had this for a couple of months and it’s rust covered.

smaller than I thought

Wish the tool was a bit longer. My hand still goes in a lot in my 20 gallon tank.

Great for cleaning and leveling sand!

I bought this to help clean and maintain the sand in my turtle’s tank. It is made of very sturdy feeling metal and so far has not had any issues with rusting from being wet. I use it to push all of the algae and turtle poo to one corner so I can pick it up without disturbing the sand or sucking up sand in my gravel vac. It works wonderfully and saves my hands from being wet all the time

Great addition to planted aquarium

Fluval did a great job with these tools. This is helpful when I just need to move a bit here and there around the plants. It could have been a bit longer to reach the back but otherwise no complaints. Quality is definitely there.

Quality Product

Little to say but this feels as good as it looks. Upon opening, I immediately knew it was a good purchase
