Why does BRS recommend this?
With properly sized magnets and now includes the scraper attachment, Algae Free has made one of the best algae scrapers in the industry. Most of their value is the fact all of them (except the Great White) do float if the connection through the aquarium is lost for easy retrieval, which is the frustrating point for most other magnet cleaners in the industry.
Glass and acrylic aquariums 5/8" to 3/4" thick
The Tiger Shark will easily remove algae off smaller tanks. Its inner assembly will float to the surface if disengaged for easy retrieval.
- Glass aquariums holding 200 to 350 gallons
- Acrylic aquariums 72" long and 36" high, 96" long and 30" high, or 120" long and 24" high
- Large 4" x 2" cleaning area

great magnet cleaner, but... By Jeff on 9/17/2017Jeff would recommend this product to a friendMy only complaint with this product, other than cost, is that the glue holding the felt to the outer magnet sometimes gives way, allowing the felt to roll up and smear the outside of your tank with glue. If that could be improved this thing would be perfect. Still seems to be the best option out there.
Works great By Qinji on 7/6/2017Qinji would recommend this product to a friendWorks Great ; very strong magnets
Great Scrapper By Neil on 1/10/2017Neil would recommend this product to a friendThis thing is a monster. It will easily clear everything off your glass. I'm using this on 5/8" glass. The magnets are so strong you will get a workout using them. On 5/8" glass I believe you could get away with the Hammerhead. I think the Hammerhead is the same size as the Tiger Shark. If you have 1/2" glass, this scrapper will do the job.
Awesome cleaner By Jay on 7/5/2016Jay would recommend this product to a friendBought the Piranha Float Plus. Takes everything, including hard to remove algae (coralline, diatom, etc), with minimal scraping. Worked great on my glass surface with the stainless steel scraper. Love that it floats, though the stainless steel part does not. It fits into the floating portion pretty snugly so when you transition from one side of the aquarium to another, it doesn't pop out when you lose your magnetic connectivity. Also won't simply fall out while floating either. It's possible, but so far, I haven't had it happen.
Tiger Shark Scraper By Josh on 3/23/2016Josh would recommend this product to a friendi used the magnafloat algae scraper for 7 years on my 75G. I upgraded my tank from a 75G to a 180G and couldn't be happier with the Tiger Shark Magnet i recently purchased. The magnet is very powerful so i do not lose it while im cleaning the glass. I am able to turn corners without the magnet coming apart and getting blown around in the powerheads.
Amazing By Jonathon on 3/21/2016Jonathon would recommend this product to a friendThe only scraper you will ever need. The attached razor gets ANYTHING off your glass.
BEST Scrapper EVER By Mitchel on 2/5/2016Mitchel would recommend this product to a friendIf you are looking for something that will literally clean you glass and not work about the magnet coming off while cleaning and you having to try to grab it before it float away, this is the cleaner for you. As the other review mentions, this magnet is a string magnet; definitely better than any other cleaner that I have purchased. Absolutely worth the money. Using it on my 210. Used Mag-Float and Tunze (the worst seems like) and this bad boy hands down kills them in performance.
great scraper By medtoad on 10/24/2015medtoad would recommend this product to a friendWorks great on my 330 gal tank. Unlike my previous scraper, does not separate from the magnate if I try to go fast. The magnet is so strong that it can make my arm a bit tired if there is a lot of algae.
