Scraper blade & squeegee from AquaMedic could actually be a good buy
The squeegee scraper from AquaMedic is quite a handy device that will be a welcome addition to any aquarium service company’s toolbox. The new scraper is actually a 6″ long blade which is very sharp. When not in use the sharp scraper is covered by a tightly fitting squeegee to tidy up the outside of the tank. The angle of attack on this handled device can be changed using the adjustable swivel-neck; it uses teeth to catch and stay in place firmly when pressure is applied and it felt very tight to us when we tried it. The 6″ scraper blade makes short work of algaefied aquarium glass and the adjustable angle of the blade made it very easy to get behind some tight spaces. Also, the 6″ squeegee was quite a bit more manageable than the 12″ window cleaning version we usually use: it’s a lot easier to use a 6″ squeegie on a 10″ high nano cube. The heft of the build warrants probably about $30 but if this can retail for $25 it would be a huge hit with the power aquarium cleaners out there. We saw piles of these at AquaMedic USA HQ yesterday so the scraper blade and squeegee should already be shipping to AM dealers nationwide. AquaMedic USA has been out of the loop for quite a while now but with new shipments arriving frequently in Loveland, CO, we can finally look forward to seeing a fresh wave of new products from the German parent company that manufactures and designs all this stuff. You know the deal, lot’s more images after the break.
