    So I got some nice news this morning. My Algae Mower Vac arrived in the post, so thought i would start a thread reviewing the product, possibly upload a video(first time for me, hope i know what i'm doing). Will do the unboxing tonight and upload the photos. So stay tuned, will unleash the fury on any algae in my tank :lol:
    Have a tiny patch of hydroids on a small piece of rock as well as 1 Aiptasia growing on another i think, so will give it a go on those as well.
    So basically small info on product :

    Algae Mower Vac helps you with:
    * Green & black hair algae removal and control

    * Brush & beard hair algae removal and control

    * Red & Black slime algae removal and control

    * Moss and sticky detritus removal and control

    * Aiptasia or other pest corals removal and control

    and what i like is the fact you don't have to stick your hands in the water it extends from 15cm to 91cm
    so to be cont....:thumbup:
