Here's a tool that will help you to freshen up your tank manually without the need for rigorous scrubbing and wiping. The Aqua Medic Scraper from Pet Store
is essentially a glass cleaner that is especially manufactured to be used on aquariums. It is easy to use, and best of all, you will save more money on your electricity bills when you operate this as your primary cleaning utensil.
The Aqua Medic Scraper is similar in appearance to regular glass cleaners that have been utilized to maintain windows, etc. This product can be used for any type of material that your aquarium is made from, whether it is acrylic, glass, or even plastic. It is simple to operate. All you need to do is place the head of this tool to the surface of your tank, and drag it down, making sure that the scraper is touching the glass at all times.
The Aqua Medic Scraper is quite durable, and its body is adjustable to make you more comfortable while you're using it. It needs to be equipped with a special form of sponge that is meant to fit this product properly. This disposable part is bought separately, but it comes at a very low price.
Cleaning your aquarium
will be so much simpler once you have the Aqua Medic Scraper literally on hand.
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.
