$800 aquarium with a brand new hazy swipe across the front with barely any pressure applied (because I wanted to see what it would remove without having to grind on it like I have to with my mitt).

This scraper is for an acrylic aquarium. I won''t mention the brand but my aquarium does not allow you to lift the top off completely - there are various slots for things like, lights, filters, thermometers etc. That has an impact on how well this brush works. For an aquarium like this, you will not be able to get the aquarium clean at any spot the two pieces of acrylic meet. It would work great for an open top aquarium or one where you could expose the corners of the aquarium but I''m going to need to use a shorter handled brush (or a clean rag) to get into the corners of my tank. This is NOT a fault of the brush - which works great - it is dependent on the way your aquarium is made. It also might not work well for small aquariums due to the long handle- you might want a shorter brush for a 5 gallon tank.

NOT FOR ACRYLIC TANKS
Reviewed in the United States on January 17, 2019
Buyer beware! Ruined my brand new acrylic tank. I didn''t even scrub hard. Within seconds I noticed deep scratches on a brand new acrylic aquarium from glasscages.com . Absolutely pissed right now. This was an expensive mistake.

I ordered both the glass and acrylic Algae Scrapper and they both came used in the box, the API instruction sheet/cardboard that shows in the item picture was not attached to the handles on both scrappers but was just loose in the box, no way it could have worked it self loose. The White pad on the acrylic scrapper was not white but had a yellow tinge on it.
I did not want to bother requesting for an exchange. I just soaked both in hot water to give it a good cleaning and kill off what ever bacteria on it, the pads seem to hold. Handle is still kind of short for my 55 gallon, I still had to get my hands wet but didn''t have to reach all the way down to scrub the bottom. As for scratching the acrylic, I didn''t really see any but will look more closely next time. Over all these are good scrappers, would have been great scrappers if they weren''t used.

This is my second purchase of this scraper. The first one lasted for several years. We have a fairly deep acrylic tank, and I would have liked a few more inches in length, but overall I have been very pleased with this product. The tool has a nice shape and it makes easy to apply enough scrubbing pressure to the sides of the tank. I use it for the hard-to-remove green spot algae, which my otocinclus cannot help with.

As with any scraper, be sure not to accidentally get gravel between the scraper and the acrylic, when working near the bottom of the tank.

The price of this scraper ($6.59 on Prime as I write this) is very reasonable.
