    In May I moved to a new apartment with lots of light. My tank is now being exposed to lots of ambient light during the day, in spite of my blinds/drapes being closed. This caused green dust algae to take off. This week, in an effort to control the amount of light my aquarium received, I made...

    They seem overpriced to me. But the convenience of cleaning my aquarium without sticking my arm in and contaminating the water might make it worth it. What's your opinion on this item? Do you love it/hate it? I'd love to get some feedback on whether i should get one or not.
