So much better than the cheap ones! By Casey on 8/29/2012
Casey would recommend this product to a friend
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 8/10/2012

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 8/3/2012

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.

Great for glass By David on 7/12/2012

Great product with extremely strong magnets that enable you to remove even the crusty stuff with just a few passes. I use it on 1/2 inch starphire and it works like a charm.
I would be hesitant to use on acrylic however. One sand granule or other substance harder than acrylic and you just turned your tank into a scratched up mess.

I use 2 of these on my tanks the magnet is super strong and cleans fantastic. I have used cheaper brands and they were ok. I tried one of these and will never go back to the cheaper magnet cleaners.

I have had other brands in the past. This works fast and if you ever wear it out you can replace the pads. Buy once and pay a bit more but in the long run you come out on top
Excellent performance, but pricey By gbr_huskers on 6/29/2012

This cleaner works like a charm and is an excellent upgrade to the scrubber I previously used. I have to admit, however, that it costs more than it should. The magnets are super strong and it cleaned both sides of the glass to a sparkling clear finish. Hard to say that the results justify the price, so value was rated medium for me. I don't regret the purchase.

This is the best mag cleaner I have encountered..magnets are strong which means only one pass is needed to clean the algae off the side of your tank

I have 120 glass with .5" thick glass and I think i could have gone smaller on the magnet strength. Performs almost too well.

All five stars if you have glass! By Charley on 4/25/2012
Charley would recommend this product to a friend
Awesome magnet, works well, worth the seemingly steep price. It works well on acrylic tanks, but you need to be a lot more careful. If you own an acrylic tank, you're probably used to that, though. Specifically: With glass I'd leave the magnet in the tank at all times, but with acrylic I don't want to risk something growing in it that will scratch. So taking it out every time is sort of a pain, but not a huge deal.

Great for removing tough coraline algea, works best when combined with razorblade attachment.

I got a hold of this unit for my 90gal reef. Although its strength is way overkill for my glass thickness, it cleans calcerous agaes in a few swipes where smaller magnetic cleaners would require a circular scrubbing motion for a decent amount of time. It is pricey, but the magnets are rediculously strong. Definitely a good buy

ok so once you get over the sticker shock and are PO'd at your old magna -something because it doesn't work well. you order this. the first time you use it you think "what took me so long" the thing works! cuts tank scrubbing time by 2/3 and does a better job. it makes a daily job most of us hate much better - worth the money? you decide...

man these things are strong.
that is a good thing but i do think it makes scratching your glass so much easier too. i find myself just using my mag float because of this.
if you had way thick glass this would be the way to go
Great Product By Ray on 3/9/2012

While quite expensive (these use Neodymium rare earth magnets and the prices of Neodymium can fluctuate widely as China controls the majority of the world's supply), they perform very well. I have 1" acrylic and these cleaners clean the panels in just a couple of swipes. It is hard to turn the corners and if they separate, the half in the aquarium does not float (Great White only), so it will drop into the substrate. Also, you must be VERY careful with this product. You could really damage your finger, and if you are careless and clamp the two sides together, good luck getting them open.
