AquaBlade•P Scraper SHORT with Acrylic Safe Plastic Blade

Made in the USA!

Compatibility built-in
100% Backwards compatible with previous units. AquaBlade scraper fits the old blades, AquaBlade blades fit the old scraper.

Strength and beauty
By utilizing virgin plastic in the molding process instead of re-grind or recycled plastics, the AquaBlade is much stronger and more agile than other scrapers. And the first time you pick up an AquaBlade you’ll notice the difference it makes. It feels strong and durable — perfect for work inside your aquarium.

No hollowness here
The AquaBlade is injected molded as a solid piece of plastic which keeps water from entering the unit while using. This means no hollow handles and drizzling of excess water when removed from the aquarium. And without trapped aquarium water inside the scraper it will never develop odors from growing bacteria.

White plastic
Allows you to see the scraper more easily through darker algae. This means you don’t miss any spots the first time around the aquarium.

Blades full of sharp ideas
The AquaBlade cyan blade was created by testing countless different types of plastics and plastic blends. The results are a special self lubricating plastic that is softer than acrylic, so it will not scratch acrylic.

does the job

Algae growing on the plexiglas is an ongoing problem. This scraper removes the algae without scratching the plexi.

good product

This scraper works really well for the type of hard algae I get on my glass, which only comes off with a lot of pressure from this type of scraper, the magnet ones don't work for me. It is very similar to the old Kent scrapers which are apparently no longer made, other than an adjustable length one I purchased fairly recently. The trouble with that Kent adjustable is that when pressed firmly the adjustable length retracts. This Continuum scraper is good quality, I got the 24" and it handles a lot of pressure without breaking. The blades also seem good quality and don't scratch my acrylic tank.

great sturdy acrylic safe

I've used this for about a month now, & so far it's been great! Hasn't scratched my acrylic tank yet - knock on wood - even while applying a lot of pressure to remove tenacious coralline. Excellent quality, thin shaft only looks weak - it's surprisingly very strong! This is just the right size for me to reach all areas of my tank (24" deep, 24" width) with substantial eurobracing. Handgrip doesn't slip at all even while in the water, love the replaceable blade design, angled just enough to allow getting to some areas that would be impossible with my existing shorty version. 4/5 stars only due to personal preference - the handgrip is just slightly more narrow than I'd like for my large hands. Highly recommend this series of scrapers!

excellent

I love this scraper. it's wide blade and easy grip handle make scrapping algae easy. And the fact that the handle is not hollow, it will not fill with water and grow mildew and bacteria like my last scraper did. great product!

Long Handle Aqua Blade

Works great. The handle never flexed. Got into spots I could not reach before. The angle helps make it where you can get your hand in small places and still have leverage. The blade that comes with it is for acrylic. If you have glass, order the steel blades.

Aquablade-P

The Aquablade-P acrylic scraper worked very well on tough algae that I had in my tank. A conventional brush wouldn't touch it but the scraper plowed right through it.

AQUA SCRAPER ROCKS!

Just want to you cant go wrong buying Aqua Blade Scraper! I bought 3 of them. The shorty, the 15" and 24". The longer ones are made of FIBER GLASS rods, they are VERY strong. you can apply a lot of force with ease. will be buying the 30" later on. It also has a rubber type grip handle as well it does come off if you need try out the handle. the replacement Blades are cheap enough so stock up on them they should last some time though. very well maid highly recommend.
