    inTank's new All-In-One Corner Algae Scraper got a big test on my tank recently and aced it. inTank's scraper is not the flimsy freebie you get at reef shows, it is beefy and fits in your hand nicely. Standout features are the 3 unique corners bound to fit in that hard to get space in your tank, a 90 degree corner and diamond ground edges. The test was not an easy one - my gnarly return overflow slash ATS that bakes under my halide all day.

    The All-In-One mowed it down in about 1 minute. This scraper is a keeper and a great value at $8.99.

    Cool I'm always in the hunt for the best scraper. And the scratches on my 120G are proof I've tried a lot of bad ones

    How does it compare to a hand held razor blade? I have to replace the blade every time or two due to rust.

    Seems like it works for gha and slime, doesn't look like it did much to the coralline though.

    NOTHING compares to the flipper. Best dang magnet cleaner out there! I love mine. lol but this does look handy and useful. As the flipper magnet feature cant really be used to clean the overflows and such, guess you could just hold it in your hand though.
