Quick Overview

Compatible for glass or acrylic aquariums up to 1 inch.

Flipper magnet cleaners allow you to fully clean your aquariums glass with just a single tool.  The flippers ability to flip from the side with a scraper attachment for stuck on coralline, to the scrubber side with a soft pad for final cleaning of the tanks glass. 

When using the scraper side of the Flipper magnets their are only 3 points of contact which keeps that chance of scratching down to a minimum.



Full Details

  • Made with rare earth magnets for incredible cleaning strength and durability. Cleans even the most stubborn coralline algae.
  • Blade side has only 3 contact points resulting in a 3mm gap between the cleaner and the glass. This minimizes the chance of trapping sand, and thus reduces the chance of scratching, even when cleaning below the sand!.
  • Unique orienting buoyancy always keeps the magnets facing the glass for easy retrieval. Plus, Flipper is nearly neutral buoyancy so it does not sink like a stone if the magnets are disengaged.
  • Includes Stainless Steel for glass tanks.
  • It is suggested to replace blades every 3-6 months to maintain optimal algae scraping.

  • Awsome By Anthony on 10/17/2017

    This by far is the best purchase I have made for my tank. It really works great, makes a quick job of my glass 325 gallon tank.
  • Awesome By Ndrwater on 10/2/2017

    Awesome. Don't know why I waited so long to get one. Now I have 2. One for each tank.
  • DON'T USE SS BLADE!!!! By bluebar on 3/30/2017

    I got this because of all the good reviews and i have a friend that uses one on an acrylic tank and really likes it. brand new out of the package I put it to work on my front glass, cut right through the algae my mag-float couldn't with the stainless blade! now the down side, it SCRATCHED the HELL out of my 3 month old custom built in tank. as soon as i noticed it, it was too late.
  • Ok By Gar on 12/9/2016

    It's ok. Inside does not float. I prefer my Magnavore and handled scraper to this
  • The best!!!! By Lost art on 7/3/2016

    I've had quite a few magnetic cleaners and they all have been horrible, scratch my acrylic bad. So I started using the hand held scrubber and the hand held plastic blade for the hard stuff. That worked fine until I bought the AI hybrid system. I have a canopy over my tank so there is much room to move around. Cleaning the tank became a hassle. I then saw this cleaner thinking, yeah, right!!!!! Well I will tell you what, this is the best dang cleaner ever. Very easy to use and cleans great. I am perfectionist and the hard algae drove me nuts, well that is no longer a problem with this bad boy. If you are having doubts, don't, buy it!!!!
  • Great cleaner! By Sal on 6/5/2016

    The MAX is a Very good glass and acrylic cleaner, strong magnet for 1/2" glass and the blades it comes with for both glass and acrylic do a fantastic job!
  • Great product By Bill on 4/16/2016

    When I got this I thought it might actually be too powerful but so far it seems to do everything it claims to do great.
  • Best cleaner ever By Danny on 4/12/2016

    The best cleaner ever
  • Works Great! By ChuckR on 1/7/2016

    Cleans the glass very quickly and the plastic blade is great for removing algae down along the sand.

    I saw that some people had mentioned that they were having troubles with flipping it from side to side. I just read the instructions provided and I can get it to flip 99% of the time without issues. Works really well!
  • Great product By Duke on 12/19/2015

    This makes cleaning the glass almost fun. It is a little hard to flip but that's just something I will need to work on
  • Must have for bigger tanks By Sean on 11/26/2015

    This works faster and better than any other glass cleaner I've owned including the mag-float. I bought the flipper max for my 220 gal. Its hard to flip unlike the smaller flipper but soo much faster at cleaning the glass. This is a must have if you have a big tank. If your careful you can clean below the sand.
  • Large coverage good design By RJ on 10/23/2015

    I purchased my unit from at MACNA2014 and have used it for over a year now.. The Max is a little hard for me to flip due to its large size because it catches the current.. Other than this, it is a very good cleaner for large aqugariums. I suggest using the plastic blade even for glass aquariums. The ss blade works very well but the plastic blade will absolutely not scratch and works almost as well. I especially like to use the blade to clean down into the sand. Done carefully it is a very easy way to get normally hard part of the glass clean. Great product.

Will the Flipper Max work on 1/2" thick glass?
Question by: Brandon on Aug 4, 2016 3:16:00 PM
Hi Brandon,
The Flipper Max will work really well with ½” glass. It is rated for tanks with glass up to 1” thick.

With a tank that has squared off corners, how do you clean the acrylic side panels after cleaning the front? Do I have to take it apart?
Question by: Mark Steffen on Jul 23, 2016 1:19:00 AM
Hi there,
Most magnetic algae cleaners will be able to make the corner by slowly moving the external portion to the other side, the inner portion will be able to follow.
Answer by: Charlie (Admin) on Jul 24, 2016 10:56:00 AM
The description says "Includes Stainless Steel for glass tanks". Do it also include a different blade for acrylic tank?
Question by: Ningli on May 6, 2016 6:19:00 PM
Great question! The Flipper Max will come with one of each blade.
