Not too happy... By Scott on 1/7/13

After paying almost 100 dollars on the Tiger Shark and only having it for a couple months and the outside liner started peeling away leaving a sticky residue all over the outside glass of my tank.
I have since taken the liner off and use a small soft pad there and it works famously, but I shouldn't have to "rig" an item that costs this much after a couple months of use.

I used the usual MagFloats and tried the Magnavore as well. I always go back to the trusty ALG magnet. Best balance of quality, performance and price

takes all the algae off my tank in one sweep, only problem is the magnet is way too strong that it is giving my arm a work out on my 29 gal tank. but cleans so much better than my mag float

I'm new to the hobby. As you know, constant water changes, putting in live rock, figuring out the equipment, etc., has left little time to actually enjoy my work. I've cleaned the front of the tank 4 or so times with windex, but it was always smudged. I got this on a whim and it is amazing. All my work is viewable crystal-clear. Trust me... reward yourself and get this. It's not a necessity, but makes the tank the work of art that you worked for.

This cleaner is by far the best on the market. The magnet is crazy strong and the optional razor blade attachement makes getting hard algae off very easy. My tank has never been so clean!

Other magnetic glass cleaners I've had in the past aren't strong enough to stay together and do a poor job of cleaning. The tiger shark magnetic glass cleaner is nothing like those. The magnet is strong enough to stay together through thick glass and has a tough cleaning pad for algae. Don't waste your time looking at anything else.

I don't know what I would do without this! I have a 210 gallon Marineland and this is strong enough to hold on my thick glass. I bought the Tiger Shark and its perfect. I wish other parts of reef keeping were this easy.
So much better than the cheap ones! By Casey on 8/29/12

I've always ran the cheaper magnets and I aquired one of these with a tank I recently purchased and all I can say is wow. Not even on the same level with the others. It grabs/cleans way better than the rest, yes its a bit more pricey. But honestly, after using it, I dont think I could buy a cheap one again. Worth every penny.

Love this cleaner. Works great and it's fun to try and get it around corners. Makes cleaning the glass easy and fun.
Must Have! By McKay on 8/10/12

I would consider this a "must have" item for anyone who takes this hobby seriously. Makes light work keeping your glass sparkling clean. Only heads up... be careful around the gravel line - especially if you have fine sand/gravel. These magnets are extremely powerful, and if anything gets caught in the pad it's very likely to scratch your glass. I usually use this to a half inch or so above the gravel line and use a kent scraper for anything below that.
Just about worthless By Nathan on 8/3/12

I really wanted to like this magnet. It's outer wood shell is stylish and it floats. The problem is for my tank it's just too powerful. I have a 55g glass and the magnet skips around like a 1950's record player. There is no way to get it to slide across the surface of the glass.
I've tried going up, down, fast, slow, etc. It just skips. I'm assuming that although it's listed for my thickness glass, that it's just to powerful. Oh, and keep your fingers out of the way of this thing. It looks like it could do some damage if you got your fingers caught in between the two magenets slamming shut.
Now I'm out ~$50 and don't have a functional magnet.
