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.

Lamento não poderia ser um dos mais ajuda.
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.
The Flipper Magnetic Cleaner has a soft cleaning pad on one side and a blade on the other side - even better flip the cleaner inside the tank with no wet hands.
Simply rotate the outside handle 180° vertically, align with top of inside piece, the flipper will flip over and the pieces are magnetically connect again.
- Soft Cleaning Pad for Daily Maintence
- Stainless Steel Blade for Glass Tanks or ABS Blade for Acrylic Tanks for scraping harder algae
- Compatible for tanks up to 1/2" Thick
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.
So nice to find something that really works By Dennis on 5/29/2016Dennis would recommend this product to a friendHey 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 !

Great cleaner, very easy to use By dmolavi on 2/2/2016dmolavi would recommend this product to a friendThe 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 1/18/2016Doug D. would recommend this product to a friendBy far the best magnet cleaner I have used Gets all algae off the glass with ease
Best I've Used By Jessica on 11/24/2015Jessica would recommend this product to a friendLove this cleaner. I use the blade side always and it scrapes through algae like it's not even there. It always leaves my tank looking crystal clear. Product support is lacking but there are videos out there to show you how to use it and once you learn the trick it's simple to do. I simply use it, remove it from the tank and clean with fresh water and let it air dry. Love being able to scrape down into the sand without the worry of scratching my glass. I'm still paranoid and very careful but I've yet to have an issue.
should have bought one along time ago By Mike on 11/22/2015Mike would recommend this product to a friendIt does what it says. My first thought was it was too light to work. I use it on a 75 and it works perfectly for me.
Awesome product By Bruno on 11/16/2015Bruno would recommend this product to a friendProduct Does exactly what it is designed to do. Takes some practice and understanding of how the magnets work. I have noticed it's easier for me to flip the sides around in an area with less water movement.
