Very happy with this purchase. I have used cheaper mag floats in the past and this mag cleaner is much better. It has stronger magnets, and takes off most algaed with just one pass. I use this in combination with the "Easy blade scraper" to take off coraline algae.

I have been using this on my 140G reef tank, and have been very happy with it. It comes with different types of cleaning pads so you can change them out as needed. I have added the easy blade scraper to the float so occasionally I can scrape the coraline algae as well. Very strong magnets and I can actually turn the corners on my tank with out loosing the connection to in inside float.
Magnet too strong? By rroselavy on 12/9/2009

This expensive but well-built magnet cleaner has a very strong magnet. On my tank with 3/8" glass, the magnet stutters when wiping off any build-up. The stutter causes vibrations that can disturb the sand if not the inhabitants of my tank. If I move it fast, the stutter goes away, but sometimes causes water to splash out of my rimless aquarium when working at the surface. This is a hassle, so I am now using Kent scrapers and poly pads instead.
This magnet may work just fine on thicker glass, but I think it is too strong for 3/8".
