- 15" AquaBlade Aquarium Scraper - Continuum
Keep your tank squeaky clean with Continuum!
Continuum algae scrapers are by far the best handheld scraper on the market today! Made of strong virgin white plastic, AquaBlades are much stronger and you will notice it once you feel them! The 15" scrapers make a great cleaning accessory for almost any size aquarium!
Two Models Available:
Acrylic Scraper - Includes plastic blade
Glass Scraper - Includes metal blade
Continuum Handheld Algae Scrapers are considered the gold standard of aquarium algae scrapers. They are made with high-quality materials that will last a lifetime of tank cleaning. With two different blade materials, plastic and stainless steel, you can choose the scraper that best suits your tanks needs. The blue plastic blade was created by testing different types and compounds of plastics until Continuum found a polymer that was softer than acrylic but still strong enough to scrape off stubborn coralline algae.
Over the years reefers have said that they cannot see their scraper blades when they are cleaning their tank, especially in dark corners or behind rocks. The white color of the scrapers lets you see the scraper and know where the handle is at all times. The color also helps algae and other deposits stand out, so you don't miss any spots either!
One area that almost all scrapers fail is that they have a hollow handle that will allow water in and drip whenever you pull it out of your tank leaving water marks and stains. Continuum scrapers are made with solid fiberglass handles that are not hollow and are very strong. The challenge of using fiberglass handles is connecting the scraper head to the handle. Traditionally glue is used on plastic handles, but fiberglass and plastic do not like to bond together too well and Continuum puts a notch in the head and handles to solidly secure the assembly forever!

If your replacement blade ever gets dull don't worry, replacement blades are available!

Didn't do the job for me By Matt on 10/31/2018Matt wouldn't recommend this product to a friendNot sure why this is touted as a good product. I suppose the build quality is decent, but it just doesn't do the job. It is too weak to scrape off much from the glass, maybe its a limitation of handheld scrapers with longer handles, but I find that I have less leverage and have to use a lot of pressure to help with scraping and it gets tiring. Even then it is only most effective when I use the corners of the blade to "scratch" out algae. The broad side of the blase is virtually ineffective. I was surprised that my nano flipper does a better job.
Effective Product By Reid on 12/19/2017Reid would recommend this product to a friendThis scraper replaced my magnet cleaner, which tended to rake sand over the glass. I'm delighted with this scraper. It works on soft hair algae and crusty diatoms too. My mistake was not buying it sooner.
