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.
Great product. Hard to flip. By Doug on 3/26/2018Doug would recommend this product to a friendThe Flipper works great until you try to flip it. Kinda hard to master but not any reason why you shouldn't buy it. For the money it works great!
Best Glass cleaner ever By Cary on 3/20/2018Cary would recommend this product to a friendworks awesome, have a tight area for the tank which makes it difficult to use the wand algae scraper, this was so simple after learning how to flip.
Best glass cleaner ever By Amber on 2/16/2018Amber would recommend this product to a friendWell worth the money. Takes a bit to get used to the flipping of it but once you figure it out it is pretty simple just watch the video and you’ll be fine
Best $40 I’ve spent on my tank By Dan on 2/1/2018Dan would recommend this product to a friendIf you are trying to justify spending $40 on a glass cleaner like I was, just bite the bullet and do it. I finally broke down and bought one, and it took about 10 mins to clean the glass that usually takes about an hour. It does an excellent job of getting into the curved front corners that no other magnetic would even touch. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone in the market for a new glass cleaner.
flipper By Mark on 1/23/2018Mark would recommend this product to a friendworks good just be carful not to get sand in it but I use it all the time
Almost perfect By Jason on 11/30/2017Jason would recommend this product to a friendYes, it would be nice if the wet side floated. Absent that it has been great! The razor side works fantastic and gets anything the felt side doesn't get. Very easy to avoid scratches too. I always remove from the tank when I'm done so the blade has lasted me a long time. I'd buy another in a heartbeat if I needed to.
Works great until it leaks By Nicole on 11/17/2017Nicole wouldn't recommend this product to a friendHad 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 11/7/2017ClowningAround would recommend this product to a friendI 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 10/18/2017Jason would recommend this product to a friendI'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 8/16/2017James would recommend this product to a friendHad 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 7/26/2017Christopher would recommend this product to a friendThis 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 6/20/2017Steve would recommend this product to a friendThe 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!

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?
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?
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.
Where do you sell the replacement blades for this size?
Will this work on a 72 bow front without scratching tank??
Tem algum outro modelo de limpador de vidro e laminas que substitua o (Flipper Cleaner Magnetic).

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?
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.
