Flipper Magnetic Cleaner is 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 the build-up and when you "flip" the magnetic cleaner you have a nice soft felt pad for soft algae build-up and final polishing.


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


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.

Product Questions

I have an acrylic tank. Is this product comes with the acrylic blade or I need to buy it separately?
Question by: rafael vantolra on Dec 10, 2018, 6:25 PM
This will come with a blade for acrylic, so no need to purchase one separately! :)

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 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.

Will this work on a 72 bow front without scratching tank??
Question by: Garrett on Jul 5, 2016, 11:32 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.

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 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.

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

Sinto muito, mas eu não não entendi sua pergunta. Eu estou usando o tradutor do google para ler e responder às suas perguntas.
Por favor, esteja ciente de que não enviamos nossos produtos fora os EUA e Canadá.

Lamento não poderia ser um dos mais ajuda.

Tenha um ótimo dia.

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 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.
