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...

This glass cleaner is not only very effective, but it looks great as well! Have no problems leaving this out all the time since it has a great finish

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.

When I bought the piranha float I didn't know that it would be built this well, it looks good and performs great.

This thing runs circles around the cheap chain store versions that shake themselves off.

This is one powerful magnet. Be careful with it (bruised my finger trying to set it up). Expensive, but worth it.

This is indeed a very strong magnet, I used it for my starfire glass, so far I did not get any scratch, but caution is needed.
Its ok but not a wow factor By Ambersunrise on 1/9/2012
Ambersunrise would recommend this product to a friend
I decided to splurge and get one of these after seeing the reviews. Honestly I think its a very high quality and nicely made glass cleaner but for the price I dont think it was worth it. I still have to swipe the glass several times just like with the magfloat.
Overall its nice and more physically appealing than a mag I am happy with it just dont understand why it costs so much.
Awesome Product By Andrew on 1/9/2012

Do not look for a cheaper magnetic glass cleaner. Spend the money to get this one. It is an awesome product. The magnet strength is incredible. This is a lot of fun to use.
Be careful not to pick up any sand . . . or you will scratch your glass.

Excellent glass cleaner much better than the mag floats, however I think its expensive. You will not be disappointed though.
Well worth the price By Eddy on 12/14/2011

Compare to my other magnetic cleaner, this works a lot better on 3/4 glass. I just wish the inner padding is a bit thicker and more durable. Overall a fantastic product.

MISLABELED- NOT FOR 3/8 ACRYLIC By Peter on 11/29/2011
Peter wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
The stars on this review don't reflect the item, but just to get your attention: Note that all the Algea Free brand magents on BRS site are mislabeled- for instance, they say this magnet is for 1/4 and 3/8 glass or acrlyic. In fact, the packaging says for acrylic 3/16 to 1/4", for glass 1/4 to 3/8. My aquarium was 3/8 acrylic so had to return. Checking the larger sizes on the BRS, they are simlarly mislabeled- enlarge the photos of the magnets to get the correct
sizing for your aquarium. The cleaner looks well-made and I'm sure when I get the right size it will be great!

Magnet is very strong, Good size for my 90g tank. Usually only 1 pass is needed to clean the glass. Price is a bit high but well worth it. much nicer then the mag floats.

Simply the easiest way to wipe down your tank. I've tried many others, and though they are not cheap, they are worth every penny

Not a low coast glass cleaner. It works. You only need to remember to leave space behind the tank so you can use it.
