Best part is my nosey goldies didn't get scraped like the last time I used my now defunct, long handled pad scraper.

Best $16 dollars I've spent in a long time.
Haha ya they are amazing! Does wonder in my Goldfish tank!

Sounds silly but with 7 tanks running and an 8th coming soon anything that makes it easier is worth a mention.
A test tube rack?! That's the best idea I've heard in ages!

An magnetic algae scraper, haven't used in over 10 years but I still enjoy playing with it by hauling the outside magnet off and chatting it bahaha neat little rig. A coat hanger that I twisted to have angles and hooks, I used to use it almost everyday for countless things so didn't have to put hands in tank every 5 seconds due to OCD lol and it doesn't disturb the fish as much. Bought a picker/cutter now that seems to be alright still can't pick something up as heavy as my homemade rig and finally A BUCKET!!!! collected about 30 now from a friend who works in a bakery lol

You can get a huge bag at Wal-mart for like $8! My LFS wanted $7 for a bag that was 1/10 of the size!

Craft or fabric stores has it for $5 in my overpriced county lol. Yep, I see poly-fil at my LFS and they charge extra (and give you less) because it says "Aquarium" on the bag .
