  • Not for half inch glass, but otherwise pretty good By on 11/22/2016

    I bought this for an aquarium with half inch glass and before long gave up - despite what the manufacture's ratings say, go for the MAX model for half inch. However, I switched this to my other tank with 3/8 inch glass and it works well. The simplicity of being able to switch quickly between scraper and scrubber is great, the magnet is plenty strong enough for 3/8 glass, and the ability to clean down into the sand is good. The scrubber side is just OK, its pretty soft (for glass) so if you get lazy like me it won't clean the glass if you have a few days buildup and start getting the tougher stuff - gotta use the scraper. Cleaning every day or so, it works good, but I prefer a bit rougher scrubber like on some of the other brands overall. Second, its pretty "fuzzy" for lack of a better term, and tends to catch bits of sand that get thrown up while using the scraper side - watch for them when you flip it over. Finally, the scrubber seems to be not replaceable - I've only had it for a month so I'm not sure yet how it will hold up, but this is a point of concern.
  • Just Get It! By on 9/20/2016

    I played with this at MACNA and loved it so much that I bought this one and the nano and I absolutely love them both. Best scraper/glass cleaner Ive ever used. For a glass tank ill never go back to anything else. I believe this one has an available scraper for acrylic tanks as well but all of my tanks are glass. I'm sure it works just as good. Just get one already! :D

    Works very well and makes me more comfortable with "aggressively" cleaning the stubborn spots with the scraper. The flipping technique takes a little practice, but I'm happy with my purchase.
  • best in the market By on 8/26/2016

    This is by far the best cleaner f or class I have ever used. The blade is just amazing and gets everything. No risk of scratching the glass, and you can get right down into the sand bed.
  • The only glass cleaner needed By on 6/22/2016

    Throw out all other glass cleaning magnets and long handled scrapers. Or save money and buy this one from the get go if starting out in the hobby. I wish this product was available 13 years ago when I first set up my tank. I would not have the handful of scratches from my old cleaning practices. I can not comment on the effectiveness on acrylic tanks as mine is glass.
  • Slick tool By on 6/13/2016

    Made easy work of the coralline build up on my glass. Works as well as I could have expected.
  • Well worth the money! By on 5/29/2016

    Let me just say that this thing works perfectly. I'm usually very worried about scratching the glass with sand with other scrappers, but this one eliminates that fear.

    Not only that, but I only need to do 2-3 scraps to eliminate that pesky coraline algae. Otherwise it takes 1 pass to remove all other kinds of algae and makes for keep the glass clean a breeze.
  • So nice to find something that really works By on 5/29/2016

    Hey guys and gals, check this out.
    So I have my son I have hooked on our awesome hobby. I am teaching him all the chemistry and maint. - everything. He was having trouble keeping the coraline algae off the glass. He did his own research and showed me this. I ordered it for him, it arrived I unpackaged it, he grabbed it tossed it in his tank - played with it a few minutes and boom off and running he went. I learned how to flip it side to side and within 20 minutes had all the glass cleared and clean. He's 10 years old. GREAT PRODUCT !

    It has a very strong magnet. Scrapes everything off the glass. Does what it's suppose to.
  • Well worth the money!! By on 5/6/2016

    This is by far the most awesome gadget I have bought to date for my reef tank. It does exactly what it says it does and my tank looks like I just brought it home.
