Great for nanos, not suitable for really tough algae By Natalia on 2/18/14Natalia would recommend this product to a friendLove this magnet--very small, simple, unobtrusive in my Nuvo 8. I love how thin it is--makes it possible to get past rocks that are very close to the glass. Also, it removed the algae from the curved corner glass, a huge plus. The magnet doesn't float, but thus far I haven't had any problems with the scraper side detaching/falling into the sand. The size was fine for my tank, but I wouldn't use this magnet on any tank bigger than 8-10 gallons.
It removes algae pretty well, but don't slack off on cleaning, as this cleaner is not really designed to handle coralline or similar. The first scraping (I set up my nano a month and a half ago and didn't get a scraper until now) took a while, but I don't anticipate that future cleanings will be as difficult as long as I scrape the glass once a week.
Works but pricey. By David on 10/9/13David would recommend this product to a friendI have no concerns about this product. It works well and is about the size of a quarter. That allows getting into curves and tighter spots, which is nice. A bit pricey, maybe....
Sleak Look, Does It's Job By Brent on 7/31/13Brent would recommend this product to a friendIt's a great looking little magnet cleaner and should only be used on smaller nano tanks (less than 10g). It's leaps and bounds better than the Two Little Fishies NanoMag because of the aesthetics and the fact that the acrylic encasing is going to last much longer than cheap feeling foam stuff on the NanoMag.
If you have a tank over 6 or 7 gallons, I would definitely recommend the Duplex over the Simplex though. This is perfect for my little 3g Pico but you can tell it would be lacking in anything much larger.
-Best Looking Mag on the Market
-Does it's job perfectly in sub-5g tanks
-Much better than it's main competitor
-Not enough surface area for larger tanks (Just get a Duplex)
Amazing By Kevin on 7/19/13Kevin would recommend this product to a friendJust got this cleaner today & I am super happy with the results. It works great in my 7.5 gallon bow front nano tank to get in the small spaces & even better on the bow front I will definitely be using this until I wear it out.
Diappointed By Matt on 6/18/13Matt wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis is great for getting into the little crevices that you might not otherwise be able to clean. However, the magnet is really weak so it doesn't do well on hard to scrub algae - or you have to go over the same spot 400 times.
Good Product By Brizhound on 4/29/13Brizhound would recommend this product to a friendI just received my Mag Simplex and I am very impressed with the quality of the material and the low profile inside cleaner is a huge plus for a nano tank. I'm using it on my 1.5 gallon. What I did not like was the fact that it's hard to rotate the inside cleaner. There is a round magnet on a square magnet. So rotating to get into corners is a little tricky but I'd buy it again if I had to.
Absolutely Love It! By Cole on 4/15/13Cole would recommend this product to a friendThis is my favorite algae magnet I've ever had. I love how its all encased in acrylic so that the salt water doesn't rust the magnet, and on top of that it looks pretty good for a scrubber. I prefer small algae magnets, but on a tank bigger than 29g I'd need the duplex.
Glass cleaning is fun! By Troy on 3/27/13Troy would recommend this product to a friendNice nano mag. It's strong enough for stubborn algae, nice looking,and small enough to get in and around live rock if stacked against the glass. The only draw back with it is that it don't float, but I have an old mag. tied to a string that I use as a recovery mag. so it's not a big deal for me.
Neat packaging, too small By Borafil on 3/17/13Borafil would recommend this product to a friendBought this for my 20 gallon, actually wanted the duplex but they were sold out. This one is too small and would only recommend for nano tanks. Not too impressed with the power of the magnet. Will look to spend more to get a cleaner with a stronger magnet.
Perfect By geranie on 2/24/13geranie would recommend this product to a friendVertex Cleaner MAG SIMPLEX its perfect for nano aquariums, sleek desing, compact and does the job. I have two of them in my nanos and they are great.
