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.

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.
The best thing ever invented!

Works great very easy to use on all my tanks! I no longer have to climb on stepladder or get water all over the place! It also doesn’t bother my fish. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves tropical fish as a hobby.
This could seriously break your tank if you aren't easy with it

So if you aren't easy with this super strong magnet it could do some damage to your tank for sure. It made the glass look super clean and nice though. Just be very easy because when you move the magnet to different sides of the tank it could crush a fish. These magnets are very big as well.

This product from Aqueon works great. It’s easy to use and there was no learning to it. Just attach the correct scraper. One for glass and another for plastic and attach it to the tank and slide it back and forth. I was impressed with the ease of this cleaner.
This little gadget really works!

I bought this cleaner for my classroom aquarium thinking for under 10 bucks I’d give it a try. I bought the small one not realizing there were larger sizes but it cleaned my 30 gallon tank perfectly. I leave it attached to the side of my tank and give the glass a wipe down a couple of times a week. I really like it.
Easy to use

I was skeptical buying this at first but it was worth it!

I had a smaller one and because I got a larger tank, I purchased this cleaning magnet. The magnet is alot stronger than I expected. It took me a little bit to figure out the right way to use it but once I did, I was pleased with how well it works
Aqueon did it again

Awesome product! Aqueon did it again! You can never go wrong with aqueon! Great value for the few bucks I payed! Don't get your fingers caught in the magnet though, you could get your fingers hurt lol. Cleans perfectly in my peacock eel tank!
