Why does BRS recommend this?
With properly sized magnets and now includes the scraper attachment, Algae Free has made one of the best algae scrapers in the industry. Most of their value is the fact all of them (except the Great White) do float if the connection through the aquarium is lost for easy retrieval, which is the frustrating point for most other magnet cleaners in the industry.

Great Algae Scraper By Ian on 5/29/2017Ian would recommend this product to a friendA little pricey, but on sale (or not) the Piranha does exactly what it says, and very well. Best magnetic algae scraper I've owned. I have a 75 gal tank and this works perfectly with the magnet being plenty strong. For a similarly sized tank, don't spend extra money on the stronger magnet versions; the manufacturer recommendations for glass thickness seem to be right on.
Excellent - Solid Glass Cleaner By TigerOscar on 4/20/2017TigerOscar would recommend this product to a friendSince I have been using the Piranha glass cleaner, the time it takes to clean the glass has been reduced drastically and my hands stay out of the tank. Great Product !
Works as advertised. By Larry on 4/6/2017Larry would recommend this product to a friendHave been using this for several weeks and it works great. Quality product.
There are no videos related to this product.
The Piranha is rated up to 3/8" glass so it may have a hard time removing stubborn algae from the front glass. I would recommend going with the Hammerhead.
Hope this helps!
