Product Questions

I see that it says for glass upto 1/2" thick. Will this work on 1/2" thick glass or is that when it stops working?
Question by: Jesse on Jul 25, 2016 1:41:00 PM
Hi Jesse,
The standard Flipper Cleaner will work with ½” glass. Any tanks with thicker glass like ¾” and it will most likely not pull hard enough to really do anything. With ½”glass you can still scrape coralline algae just fine, however if you want a magnetic cleaner with a lot of pulling power you may want to look at the Flipper MAX.

Is it safe to leave this in the aquarium even though it has a metal blade?
Question by: Evan Chandlee on May 10, 2016 1:18:00 PM
Great question!
Certainly is safe to leave in and will not cause any issues. In our systems we tend to remove the cleaner after use due to the possibility of small amounts of sand becoming caught in the scrapper when left in the tank.

Will this work on a 72 bow front without scratching tank??
Question by: Garrett on Jul 5, 2016 11:32:00 PM
We have had very good luck with the Flipper cleaners on glass tanks of any style. The only time we have had any type of magnet scraper cleaner scratch a glass tank has been due to sand stuck in between the blade and the glass.

Tem algum outro modelo de limpador de vidro e laminas que substitua o (Flipper Cleaner Magnetic).

Is the stainless blade a razor blade or just a dull piece of metal? Can a razor be put in to help get the stubborn stuff off the glass?
Question by: Dariush on Mar 18, 2014 9:52:00 AM
Hi Dariush,
It is pretty close to a razor blade. Its not super sharp on the end like its going to cut someone, but its robust while being thin enough to really do a good job scraping. Its a lot better then the thick metal or plastic pieces you see in a lot of kits.

  • Just Get It! By Shane on 9/20/2016

    I played with this at MACNA and loved it so much that I bought this one and the nano and I absolutely love them both. Best scraper/glass cleaner Ive ever used. For a glass tank ill never go back to anything else. I believe this one has an available scraper for acrylic tanks as well but all of my tanks are glass. I'm sure it works just as good. Just get one already! :D
  • As advertised By Greg on 8/29/2016

    Works very well and makes me more comfortable with "aggressively" cleaning the stubborn spots with the scraper. The flipping technique takes a little practice, but I'm happy with my purchase.
  • best in the market By Jorge on 8/26/2016

    This is by far the best cleaner f or class I have ever used. The blade is just amazing and gets everything. No risk of scratching the glass, and you can get right down into the sand bed.
  • The only glass cleaner needed By FishRfly on 6/22/2016

    Throw out all other glass cleaning magnets and long handled scrapers. Or save money and buy this one from the get go if starting out in the hobby. I wish this product was available 13 years ago when I first set up my tank. I would not have the handful of scratches from my old cleaning practices. I can not comment on the effectiveness on acrylic tanks as mine is glass.
  • Slick tool By Greg on 6/13/2016

    Made easy work of the coralline build up on my glass. Works as well as I could have expected.
  • Well worth the money! By Eric on 5/29/2016

    Let me just say that this thing works perfectly. I'm usually very worried about scratching the glass with sand with other scrappers, but this one eliminates that fear.

    Not only that, but I only need to do 2-3 scraps to eliminate that pesky coraline algae. Otherwise it takes 1 pass to remove all other kinds of algae and makes for keep the glass clean a breeze.
  • So nice to find something that really works By Dennis on 5/29/2016

    Hey guys and gals, check this out.
    So I have my son I have hooked on our awesome hobby. I am teaching him all the chemistry and maint. - everything. He was having trouble keeping the coraline algae off the glass. He did his own research and showed me this. I ordered it for him, it arrived I unpackaged it, he grabbed it tossed it in his tank - played with it a few minutes and boom off and running he went. I learned how to flip it side to side and within 20 minutes had all the glass cleared and clean. He's 10 years old. GREAT PRODUCT !
  • Works well By MeiMei on 5/29/2016

    It has a very strong magnet. Scrapes everything off the glass. Does what it's suppose to.
  • Well worth the money!! By Big Dan B on 5/6/2016

    This is by far the most awesome gadget I have bought to date for my reef tank. It does exactly what it says it does and my tank looks like I just brought it home.
  • Flipper Magnetic Cleaner By Brian C. on 3/28/2016

    This thing works great. Easy to use and does a great job. I would recommend it.
  • Great cleaner, very easy to use By dmolavi on 2/2/2016

    The magnets on this are crazy strong, and make for easy transitions between the two cleaning "modes", and to get from one wall to the next without having to reach in and move the cleaner with your hands.
  • Great product By Doug D. on 1/18/2016

    By far the best magnet cleaner I have used Gets all algae off the glass with ease
