Better for a freshwater tank.

Comments This is one of the first algae scrapers I ever purchased back in the day when I started fishkeeping. My first tank was one of those little acrylic 5 gallon tanks with a bad filter and incandescent lighting, but I loved it. I wanted to keep it in good condition and that meant no scratches. I can honestly say this scraper never caused any either. It worked like a charm to keep algae off the sides of the tank.

I only recommend it for a freshwater tank because it wasn't capable of getting off the calcareous algae that often grow in reef/marine tanks. Even in a freshwater tank older growths of algae needed to be scraped off but for the week-to-week cleaning this works and it is cheap.


Liked about it 1. Affordable price.
2. Long handle meant I didn't always get wet.
3. Didn't scratch the acrylic.


Didn't like 1. Didn't remove hard algae.
2. Got mucky and needed to be rinsed and cleaned from time-to-time.

Good Acrylic Cleaner

Comments Good value for acrylic cleaning brush.


Liked about it Works well on my quarter cylinder acrylic tank and skimmer bodies for both my tanks.
Can be cleaned with vinegar and water for reuse.


Didn't like Angle on brush.
Can scratch if to much pressure is applied.

works well

Comments scraper performs as expected. reasonable price


Liked about it good for tanks with bow fronts i use it on my biocube and works well.
i like that the handle is very sturdy you can add as much pressure as needed with out it breaking.


Didn't like the angle of the handle could be a little less. i kept hitting my corals that were at the bottom of the tank with the back side of the scraper.

Keep Scrubbing

Comments I works well, I use 6 of them for my various display tanks. They last about 16 months until the foam comes off.
If the foam comes off I just zip tie a new pad back on to the handle!


Liked about it Nice angle on the end.
There is a hook built in to the top so that it can be hung up.


Didn't like The glue that hols the pad to the handle dissolves in bleach water if left in for too long.

Good but will eventually need to be replaced

General I acutally do like these brushes. They help give you over an extra foot of reach which is helpful especially for those of us with tall tanks who are not the tallest ourselves. However they do need to be replaced once they are used since they brush is not replaceable. Other then that they are handy.


Liked about it Adds extra reach for those hard to reach places in the aquarium especially for tall tanks.


Didn't like Must replace the entire brush once it has become used.
