Aqua Medic Scraper Information

The scraper is a multiple use blade cleaner. The 5.9" (15cm) wide blade makes it easy to remove even the most resistant calcerous algaes from the aquarium glass. The blades are manufactured from corrosion resistant hardened steel. The removable blade protector also acts as a squeegee for cleaning the outside of the aquarium glass. A unique feature of the scraper is the hinge which allows the blade head to be turned for 180°. This facility allows the user to still clean the aquarium even when the tank decoration - such as rocks or roots, comes very close to the glass.

Comments: The blade and adjustable head on this are great. But I only give it 3 stars since I can't find a handle for it anywhere. It has fine threads that don't match hardware store handles. If it came with a matching handle I'd give it 5 stars

Comments: I've tried many scrappers and this stands out to be the best. I've used this for about a year now and its never failed to do less than 110% of the job. Many thumbs up

Comments: I have a 450 gallon custom reef tank and over the years I have used many magnets and scrapers. This is by far the best. Simple to add a long handle and the blades remove ANY type of algea from the glass. High price but worth it when your cleaning time cuts way back.

Comments: I'm a lazy person, so this glass cleaning algae scraper simply is amazing! One swipe over the affected part of my marine tank and voila! gone are all the algaes clinging to the glass (including coralline.) Wish there was a longer handled version of this so I can clean the back part of my tank.

Best scraper for glass

Comments: I confess to trying every other glass scraper I could find before finally coming across this one. It is by far the best. 1) The blade is solid and doesn't bend. I really do think you'd break the glass before bending the blade. This provides full contact with the glass and efficient scraping. 2) The blade is extremely sharp. I'm talking almost razor-blade sharp (and I have the scar on my palm to prove it). But as long as you're aware of the sharpness and aren't careless like me, you'll appreciate the ability to almost effortlessly whisk away even the most stubborn algae buildup. 3) The blade can be solidly angled anywhere from 0 to 90 degrees (and locked in position). This allows you to get really good leverage even in tight spots. 4) The blade is about twice as long as most other blades, which means you can scrape more area in less time. Overall, I highly recommend.

Awesome very sharp wide blade

Comments: This scraper uses a 6" razor blade that peels coraline right off the glass! Be careful around silicone edges, and go to the sprinkler section of your hardware store to find a handle. Rinse after use.
