Searched Algae Free Algae Magnet in Reviews
 

 

If you have a thick panes in your tank this is the tool for you. featured

Comments They advertise that is tool is designed for 3/4 to 1" thick glass or acrylic tanks. I would venture to say that it would work with a 1.25 inch thick tank. I like that it can be used on glass or acrylic tanks with just the change of the cleaning pad which is held on by a durable piece of Velcro. The magnet inside is encased in a durable plastic covering that is not very wide so it has a minimal profile from the glass into the tank.

On the outside the wood covered magnet has nice round edges with a wood grain finish and a felt front side to contact the surface with. it also comes with a replacement felt pad that is held it's own adhesive.

Word of caution follow the directions when attaching the magnets to each other, or there could be serious issues.


Liked about it I liked the way this performs as advertised it stuck to and cleaned 1" acrylic like gum on your new shoes. I was able to vigeriously move this magnet in any direction and the other side would stick with ease. The replacement pads are cut to fit and any brand will work however if you use their brand they come with replacement Velcro and felt for the inside and outside magnet.


Didn't like Becareful and follow directions when mating the outside magnet with the inside if the directions are not followed one could shatter the glass or crack the acrylic in their tank. This magnet is a bit spendy.

Worth the money!

Comments This product is well worth the money! I have tried several different techniques for removing algae from the glass and this is BY FAR the best! It cut my time cleaning the glass considerably, and I have to say that I find I am personally less wet after cleaning with this tool. Despite the high price tag, I would definitely recommend it to others! I also purchased the razor scraper attachment which is awesome!! I would say that this is one of my favorite aquarium tools!


Liked about it 1) Easy to use
2) Does the job very well, in less time than other methods
3) It comes with an extra set of pads for replacement when necessary
4) Razor/scraper attachment is the best!
5) It's actually kind of fun to use! My kids are always willing ti help with THAT part of tank maintenance!


Didn't like 1) Cost (still worth it)
2) It is necessary to remove & clean/dry the razor blade on the attachment to protect it from rusting - just a little bit of a pain (still worth it)

perfect magnetic cleaner

Comments This is one best magnetic cleaner on the market!! It might be an little pricey but it is definitely worth it, it also has a awesome wooden finish to the dry side. It also comes with extra pads because they get used up (but slowly). You don't want to sit your had and arm into your tank too often because you might introduce bad things like soaps,lotions etc.. so instead of sticking you arm in your tank to clean it, you can use this product!! This product is also extremely strong and a work of caution, do not let the 2 magnets stick together because you will ruin one or both sides of the cleaner.


Liked about it 1. easy to use
2. super strong
3. does the job!!
4. extra pads included


Didn't like nothing!!

Great Magnet

Comments I am very pleased with this magnet. I have used a few different brands of algae magnets and I like this one the best out of all of the ones I have used. It has a better appearance than the others and has a narrower profile. It also seems to be stronger than the other magnets I have used


Liked about it Beautiful wood finish, narrow profile and stronger magnets.


Didn't like Its a bit pricier than some of the other comparable magnetic algae scrubbers. But for the finish, I do think it was justified.
