Keeping your tanks glass clean is easily the top maintenance task for any aquarium. Keeping clean glass lets you see your fish and corals actual color, and also helps reflect light back into the tank at different angles, reducing shadowing. It is common for soft algae to grow on the glass that can be removed with a typical cleaning pad, but there are times that tougher calcium based algae, like coralline algae, can build up and is a lot more stubborn to remove. For more difficult algae types we like to use a metal blade scraper for glass aquariums and plastic blade cleaners for acrylic tanks. One of our favorite magnetic algae scrapers is the Flipper cleaner. They come in many different sizes, and a majority of them include plastic and metal blades depending on your tank material. Fipper cleaners have two working sides for the in-tank half of the scraper. The side with the felt pad works ideal for soft algae and film algae, where the other half with the scraping blade can be used for
Like many Tunze products, there are some surprisingly and cool features of the "Care Magnet," aquarium magnet cleaner. The care magnet comes in three sizes: Care Magnet Nano Dimensions - 1.77" x 3.07" (45mm x 78mm) Glass Thickness - 1/4" to 3/8" (6mm to 10mm) Includes plastic replacement blade Care Magnet Long Dimensions - 3.38" x 5.51" (86mm x 140mm) Glass Thickness - 3/8" to 1/2" (10mm to 15mm) Includes stainless steel blade and two plastic replacement blades Care Magnet Strong Dimensions - 3.38" x 5.51" (86mm x 140mm) Glass Thickness - 1/2" to .79" (15mm to 20mm) Includes stainless steel blade and two plastic replacement blades - plastic blades are recommended for acrylic tanks The long and strong size has a blue clip on one side that allows you to attach a razor blade allowing you to handle all the hardest to clean areas of your tank. Another nice feature of this magnet is the blade edges which are somewhat raises, making it pretty hard to trap sand which means
Magnet cleaners have been around for a long time but the Flipper is the first one to really bring anything new to the industry. On one side is your typical scrubby pad you can use to clean your glass. While most cleaners use some type of Velcro, the cleaning pad is a bit different on the Flipper, with a finer softer material that works better than some of the cheaper cleaners. The biggest difference on the Flipper is that the fact that you can "flip" it to switch to the blade attachment. The blade works well to remove almost anything on the glass, including hard coralline algae. What do you use to clean your glass? Let us know in the comments below!

New from Tunze this year is a new nano skimmer. Complete with surface skimming attachment and magnet mounts, this skimmer is one of the smallest-bodied skimmers we have seen. It even utilizes small silicone buffers to keep it quiet. They are expected to be released by the end of July. The new magnet cleaner from Tunze, called the Care Cleaner, is made entirely of plastic. Designed specifically not to pick up sand, these powerful magnet cleaners do a great job on the glass. It is also nice that if you have some really stuck-on algae, you can swap in a metal blade if you like. If you haven't already seen the new LED's from Tunze, they are super unique. Aside from the fact that they are submersible, you can actually control them without a controller or buttons. To change the color spectrum for the light, you actually hold the magnet mount over the light. The light can sense the presence of the magnet and will adjust the color.
