Great product By Postmanzbt on 10/23/2015Postmanzbt would recommend this product to a friendGreat design and quality you can see and feel. I used them on my nano tank in places other scrapers couldn't get. Now I have a large tank and I bought more to use them to clip my Nori then I toss them to the bottom of my tank. The magnetic nature of these hold the nori very well, and are easy to remove as they attach themselves to any net or coated metal rod I gather them with. They are hardly noticed at the sand level when they are empty, and are appealing to the eye of noticed. The weight of them hold larg amounts of nori in one place as fish tug at them.
its alright By evaneatspie555 on 1/27/2015evaneatspie555 would recommend this product to a friendusing on a nuvo 16 and the magnet is barely strong enough to do anything would recommend the duples for anything over a 10 gal tank
Good, not great By Fross on 12/26/2014Fross wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThe Vertex Cleaner-Mag is a decent product. Nice and small for nano reefs and reefs that have rocks close to the glass. My only complaint, like others, is that the magnet is a bit weak compared to other products I have used.
Two Little Fishes makes a product similar to this and its much stronger.
Good, but not as good as the Vortex Duplex By elwaine on 12/7/2014elwaine would recommend this product to a friendI have both the Vortex Simples and the Vortex Duplex. The Duplex is at least twice as strong and not all that much larger. (They are equal in thickness.) If I were to buy just pone, it would be the Duplex, hands down.
Great sleek looking mag cleaner! By nanoman 28G on 10/9/2014nanoman 28G would recommend this product to a friendI have been using the Vertex Simplex magnet for about a week on my IM Nuvo Fusion 10G tank and I love it way more than my previous magnet cleaner, which was a magfloat mini. The Simplex is way stronger, cleans better and it's much smaller and sleeker! I recommend it!
Overall good product By Scott on 4/6/2014Scott would recommend this product to a friendThis magnet is strong for its size and is great at getting in tight spots. Simple clean look and has a good abrasive pad.
Great for nanos, not suitable for really tough algae By Natalia on 2/18/2014Natalia would recommend this product to a friendLove this magnet--very small, simple, unobtrusive in my Nuvo 8. I love how thin it is--makes it possible to get past rocks that are very close to the glass. Also, it removed the algae from the curved corner glass, a huge plus. The magnet doesn't float, but thus far I haven't had any problems with the scraper side detaching/falling into the sand. The size was fine for my tank, but I wouldn't use this magnet on any tank bigger than 8-10 gallons.
It removes algae pretty well, but don't slack off on cleaning, as this cleaner is not really designed to handle coralline or similar. The first scraping (I set up my nano a month and a half ago and didn't get a scraper until now) took a while, but I don't anticipate that future cleanings will be as difficult as long as I scrape the glass once a week.
Works but pricey. By David on 10/9/2013David would recommend this product to a friendI have no concerns about this product. It works well and is about the size of a quarter. That allows getting into curves and tighter spots, which is nice. A bit pricey, maybe....
Sleak Look, Does It's Job By Brent on 7/31/2013Brent would recommend this product to a friendIt's a great looking little magnet cleaner and should only be used on smaller nano tanks (less than 10g). It's leaps and bounds better than the Two Little Fishies NanoMag because of the aesthetics and the fact that the acrylic encasing is going to last much longer than cheap feeling foam stuff on the NanoMag.
If you have a tank over 6 or 7 gallons, I would definitely recommend the Duplex over the Simplex though. This is perfect for my little 3g Pico but you can tell it would be lacking in anything much larger.
-Best Looking Mag on the Market
-Does it's job perfectly in sub-5g tanks
-Much better than it's main competitor
-Not enough surface area for larger tanks (Just get a Duplex)
Amazing By Kevin on 7/19/2013Kevin would recommend this product to a friendJust got this cleaner today & I am super happy with the results. It works great in my 7.5 gallon bow front nano tank to get in the small spaces & even better on the bow front I will definitely be using this until I wear it out.
Diappointed By Matt on 6/18/2013Matt wouldn't recommend this product to a friendThis is great for getting into the little crevices that you might not otherwise be able to clean. However, the magnet is really weak so it doesn't do well on hard to scrub algae - or you have to go over the same spot 400 times.
Good Product By Brizhound on 4/29/2013Brizhound would recommend this product to a friendI just received my Mag Simplex and I am very impressed with the quality of the material and the low profile inside cleaner is a huge plus for a nano tank. I'm using it on my 1.5 gallon. What I did not like was the fact that it's hard to rotate the inside cleaner. There is a round magnet on a square magnet. So rotating to get into corners is a little tricky but I'd buy it again if I had to.
