The Aqueon Algae Cleaning Magnet for Aquariums is the easiest solution for removing algae from the walls of your glass or acrylic aquarium. An abrasive pad is included for regular glass aquariums as well as a softer felt pad with greater scratch prevention for acrylic tanks. The cleaning magnet works to clean the inside of the aquarium as it slides along to follow the outside magnetic handle. This convenient method makes it easy to keep your aquarium free of algae without even getting your hands wet. If the magnets become separated, the inner cleaning magnet will sink to the bottom of the tank for easy retrieval instead of floating away.

I used it on multiple of my aquariums it doesn’t do much it didn’t clean my class or get the algae so don’t buy this just get a scraper it’s cheaper

Wasn't sure of size that I needed- product desc. solved that problem. It cleans more than just algae for me.. I have turtles, and it cleans the top portion of the tank where there is no water. Added benefit.

I bought this not knowing what to expect. I have multiple tanks so I got 1 to try. Man, I was excited on how well it worked. I have 3 big sharks and they killed my pleco so my tank was very dirty and thick with algae. I am definitely ordering more. I love that I don't have to get my clothes wet trying to scrub my tank. Love it

This is rated as being safe for Acrylic tanks. IT IS NOT! I have two huge scratches in my tank now because of this product. There is a component that is clearly labeled "Not safe for Acrylic", so it was thrown away. The remaining two pieces still gouged the tank.

I really like the magnet, I gets the glass on my aquarium clean and clear. Questions: do I need a heater for gold fish? The list of different types of fish states that they are cold water fish.

I honestly don't know why I never bought one of these before. I have a glass 70 gal freshwater tank and this makes algae maintenance so much easier. It powers through even really built up algae but without killing my arms like the pole scrubbers. Love it.

Whoever invented this tool is a genius. Its very helpful and makes cleaning easier. I will say this thou. The black pad for the glass isnt that great. We have been using the blue pad for our glass aquarium and it works better than the black one. At least for us anyway. Still recommend this tool to anyone who has a tank it's a must have.

This works well the magnet is extremely strong. Not sure if the packaging tells you to put the magnet that goes inside the tank on first or not, but I didn’t the first time. I held the one side on the outside of the glass and when I went to put the other side inside the tank the magnet slammed against the glass. Thankfully none of my fish were between the magnet and the glass, but if there had been it wouldn’t have been pretty. So lesson learned in hold the piece on the inside then attach the other side.

I didn't even realize it came with a cleaner for both acrylic and glass tanks. You can't go wrong with this for cleaning the glass. It doesn't bother the fish at all and makes it super easy on you.
