Quick Overview

The Flipper Magnetic Cleaner has a soft cleaning pad on one side and a blade on the other side - even better flip the cleaner inside the tank with no wet hands.

Simply rotate the outside handle 180° vertically, align with top of inside piece and pieces are magnetically connected again.

  • Soft cleaning pad for daily maintenance

  • Stainless steel blade for glass tanks or ABS blade for acrylic tanks for scraping harder algae

  • Compatible for tanks up to 1/2" thick


Full Details

Flipper Magnetic Cleaner are perfect for tanks that grow coralline algae and other stubborn deposits on the glass or acrylic. Flipping the cleaner magnetic is a very simple concept working off the polarity of magnets letting you use both sides of the algae scraper. The blade on the Flipper works very well at scraping off build up and when you "flip" the magnetic cleaner you have a nice soft felt pad for soft algae build up and final polishing.

  • Works great until it leaks By Nicole on 11/17/2017

    Had this for about 6 months, worked great. Then for some reason it filled with water, after that the magnetic would barely hold it on the glass and I had to manually fish it out of the tank becuae it sank.
  • Great! By ClowningAround on 11/7/2017

    I was worried because my aquarium is 1/2” cell cast acrylic. A lot of the cleaners would require me to buy the XL type that costs a lot more. I bought this one and I am so glad I did. Works great! Easy to flip and cleans perfectly. The plastic scrapper will remove coralline algae.
  • Great glass cleaner By Jason on 10/18/2017

    I've used this for a while. While I do wish the wet side floated, I knew it didn't when I bought it. It flips fairly easily and the non-blade side cleans well without destroying silicone. If you get the dry side wet it will streak, even after it dries, unless you wash it in mild detergent, rinse well, and let it dry. I see no reason to own another brand unless the wet side falling to the sand makes it unretrievable for you.
  • Worked well By James on 8/16/2017

    Had this for about 3 months and now it rattles when I move it around the glass and leaves streaks all over the dry side of the glass. But other than that I worked well
  • works great but should float By Christopher on 7/26/2017

    This is great for cleaning and scraping but really should float, destroyed a coral when I tried to flip it and wet side fell to the bottom and blade landed directly on coral.
  • Works great! By Steve on 6/20/2017

    The scrubbing pads works very well, and the blade can scrape off the toughest crust. It can even get off those hard to hit calcium deposits at the water line. Flipping it takes a little practice, but it's simple to get the hang of. Best algae scraper I've owned!
  • Flipper By Mark on 6/14/2017

    Works good would I recommend yes
  • Awsome By Anthony on 6/9/2017

    So I have had this tool for several months and hadn't used it, was still using my old crappy one. I got this out omg what a difference, one pass and my glass looks new. I love this thing took literally 10 minutes to clean a 325 gal tank
  • Worth the money spent. By Joshua on 5/8/2017

    I have only had it for a few months, but can already tell that it was money well spent. I love the scraper side of it. I would recommend it to anyone.
  • Love Love Love it By shawn on 5/1/2017

    Works amazing. I had ALOT of coraline algae in my 250 gal tank. With in a half hour it was all scraped off and no damage to the tank silicone and my hands never got wet at all.
  • Love love love it By Shawn on 4/30/2017

    Worth its weight in gold. Absolutely works as promised. Cleaned my tank up in no time.
  • doesnt work too well on 1/2" glass By james on 4/16/2017

    product is pretty ineffective on 1/2" glass. went back to my old mag float which works better

Product Questions

I see that it says for glass upto 1/2" thick. Will this work on 1/2" thick glass or is that when it stops working?
Question by: Jesse on Jul 25, 2016 1:41:00 PM
Hi Jesse,
The standard Flipper Cleaner will work with ½” glass. Any tanks with thicker glass like ¾” and it will most likely not pull hard enough to really do anything. With ½”glass you can still scrape coralline algae just fine, however if you want a magnetic cleaner with a lot of pulling power you may want to look at the Flipper MAX.

Is it safe to leave this in the aquarium even though it has a metal blade?
Question by: Evan Chandlee on May 10, 2016 1:18:00 PM
Great question!
Certainly is safe to leave in and will not cause any issues. In our systems we tend to remove the cleaner after use due to the possibility of small amounts of sand becoming caught in the scrapper when left in the tank.

Will this work on a 72 bow front without scratching tank??
Question by: Garrett on Jul 5, 2016 11:32:00 PM
We have had very good luck with the Flipper cleaners on glass tanks of any style. The only time we have had any type of magnet scraper cleaner scratch a glass tank has been due to sand stuck in between the blade and the glass.

Tem algum outro modelo de limpador de vidro e laminas que substitua o (Flipper Cleaner Magnetic).

Is the stainless blade a razor blade or just a dull piece of metal? Can a razor be put in to help get the stubborn stuff off the glass?
Question by: Dariush on Mar 18, 2014 9:52:00 AM
Hi Dariush,
It is pretty close to a razor blade. Its not super sharp on the end like its going to cut someone, but its robust while being thin enough to really do a good job scraping. Its a lot better then the thick metal or plastic pieces you see in a lot of kits.
