Everything about this scraper is great except it corroded and stained my floor. I could see rust forming after 2 weeks of use.
I wouldnt recommend this for marine tanks.

Not for curve glass By Walter on 1/3/12

Works great for scraping the coraline algea dots from the flat side glass of my BioCube 14 without getting my hand wet. However scrapper and scrub pad not effective for front curved glass for the coraline dots. No problem with corrosion so far but I rinse with fresh water after use.
Useful for an expected reason By Joseph on 12/24/11

I bought this for its various glass cleaning features, however I've found the rake like attachment to be the most useful part. I used it a lot during the final aquascaping and gravel ... beautifying? Yeah that. It just makes it easy to iron out the sand and clean up debris. I've scooped out some dead organisms, random detrius, and even a couple crab legs (bad crabs, play nice!) Lately I've been using it to just get the sand a little more level up front and satisfy my OCD.
Anyway, a useful tool. Probably not going to replace your floating glass cleaner, but a useful, and affordable device nonetheless. Handy to have in the toolbox.
Handle could be longer? By Alan on 12/22/11

This helps get over the rock to the back wall, but it doesn't keep my hands out of the tank. I've looked at different ways to lengthen the handle, but I don't want to make it too unwieldy to use. Overall, gets the job done.

This will work great for FW tanks. The inside of the metal rod corroded after first use and stained my floor. The scraper is not even 2 weeks old. Wish I got the Kent one. Much better quality and will not be .
Awesome! By Shaun on 5/11/11

I can rake the sand in the bottom of my 30'' tank without getting my hands wet. Makes quick easy work of scrubbing places that I cant reach with a mag scrubber.
Nice Product By Chris on 4/28/11

Very nice overall but hard to use scraper with curved glass. I have a BioCube 29 and the scraper is use less most of the time. But I am happy with the overall performance.
Great By Erik on 1/18/11

This is a great kit and replaces a couple of tools with only one item to hang inside the cabinet. Unfortunately, I wasn't using my head when I ordered it and didn't realize it was only 12" long. Not a fault of the product or BRS. My tank is ~18" deep so I epoxied a piece of plastic tubing over the end of the handle. Problem solved.
Could use a longer handle, but overall very well built. Works great. By Enjoy on 12/10/10

My tank is only 20" deep (48x30x20), and I still have to get my hands wet cleaning it. If they made optional handle lengths it would be nice to choose which one fit your need. But overall, the product does what it is suppose to, and does it good.
Good Scraper By Tom on 11/27/10

It works well, and I like the way the different attachments connect to the handle its a secure and heavy duty fit, I just wish the handle was longer
Excellent! By Dr. Sly on 8/29/10

This is by far the best quality algae scraper I've used. Other similar products I've used are cheap and flimsy- this one is definitely heavy duty and works great for my tank.
