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.
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.

Tenha um ótimo dia.
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.
Flipper Magnetic Cleaner are perfect for tanks that grow coralline algae and other stubborn deposits on the glass or acrylic. Flipping the cleaner magnetic is a very simple concept working off the polarity of magnets letting you use both sides of the algae scraper. The blade on the Flipper works very well at scraping off build up and when you "flip" the magnetic cleaner you have a nice soft felt pad for soft algae build up and final polishing.
Clean more often = neater, healthier tank By tom on 1/1/2017tom would recommend this product to a friendSteel blades on glass work well, plastic on acrylic a little less. On smaller tanks the magnet is strong enough to cause some tank movement (maybe smaller flipper is needed. Going around corners is fairly easy, flipping takes a little practice. In all it does a good job with less effort so I'll clean the tank more regularly - a winner.
WOW! By Stephane on 12/16/2016Stephane would recommend this product to a friendI've had stick scraper and various window cleaners and NOTHING comes close to doing a good job as this thing. It takes a bit to learn how to flip it but once you get the hang of it, its pretty sweet! it scraps off coraline with 1-2 passes and regular algea in 1 pass. AWESOME product
Worth the money By Jaco on 12/14/2016Jaco would recommend this product to a friendPicked one of these up for my 12 MM glass. Cleans away dust on the glass with ease on the felt side. Flipping it can be a bit tricky, but it works well.
Great product By Bryan F on 12/12/2016Bryan F would recommend this product to a friendThe flipper magnetic cleaner has a strong magnet that allows for effective cleaning of the tanks glass/acrylic. I will be purchasing another when the time comes.
Works but acrylic owners /w caution By Kris on 12/8/2016Kris wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI have used this, with replacement acrylic blades over the past 2 years and it has delivered some nasty scratches inside my tank from simple use. It works so I gave it two stars.
Not for half inch glass, but otherwise pretty good By mudbug on 11/22/2016mudbug would recommend this product to a friendI bought this for an aquarium with half inch glass and before long gave up - despite what the manufacture's ratings say, go for the MAX model for half inch. However, I switched this to my other tank with 3/8 inch glass and it works well. The simplicity of being able to switch quickly between scraper and scrubber is great, the magnet is plenty strong enough for 3/8 glass, and the ability to clean down into the sand is good. The scrubber side is just OK, its pretty soft (for glass) so if you get lazy like me it won't clean the glass if you have a few days buildup and start getting the tougher stuff - gotta use the scraper. Cleaning every day or so, it works good, but I prefer a bit rougher scrubber like on some of the other brands overall. Second, its pretty "fuzzy" for lack of a better term, and tends to catch bits of sand that get thrown up while using the scraper side - watch for them when you flip it over. Finally, the scrubber seems to be not replaceable - I've only had it for a month so I'm not sure yet how it will hold up, but this is a point of concern.
Just Get It! By Shane on 9/20/2016Shane would recommend this product to a friendI 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 8/29/2016Greg would recommend this product to a friendWorks 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 8/26/2016Jorge wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis 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 6/22/2016FishRfly would recommend this product to a friendThrow 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 6/13/2016Greg would recommend this product to a friendMade 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 5/29/2016Eric would recommend this product to a friendLet 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.
