The Mag-Float Glass Floating Magnetic Aquarium Cleaner lets you remove algae from glass aquariums without getting your hands wet. The Mag-Float consists of two powerful magnet pieces that are covered in non-toxic plastic. The magnet that goes inside the tank has fuzzy fastener on one side, and the outside magnet has felt. As you move the outer magnet, the abrasive fuzzy fastener magnet follows and scrubs the tank as it moves along. That means you can stay dry while you clean, and you won’t have to worry about knocking over decorations or damaging corals or invertebrates. If the two magnets separate, the inner piece will float for easy retrieval. The plastic cover keeps the magnets rust-free, so you can leave them attached to the tank for practical storage.

There was a tiny burr on the padded side of the float that put 2 - 4" scratches on the front of my aquarium. Beware!!

Since I changed several years ago to all live plants, I was cleaning the glass with a razor blade scraper and scotch blue pad. It worked, but was messy.
I ordered this tool, and was overjoyed the first time I used it! It takes a couple minutes to do the whole aquarium, and I don't even have to open the cover.
5 stars- highly recommend! I got the Medium, which is good-sized.

I'm so glad I heard about this and searched here to purchase. Best product to keep algae down. I have a 20 gallon tank, glass. Works well!
Scratches glass (not because of substrate)

This product has scratched 3 of my glass tanks and I didn’t notice until I was finished using it. Overtime the felt on the magnet slides off a little bit and exposes the hard plastic, which has scratched both the outside and inside of my tanks. Unless they fix this then I wouldn’t risk using this, although it’s a shame because it would make cleaning the glass a lot easier.

Love this, worked great for my 46 gallon saltwater aquarium .
not for acrylic tanks

I bought this one since my original magnet cleaner was out of stock. In reading the question and answers Chewy said it could be used on acrylic tanks too and didn’t see the acrylic version until today, never came up in my search when I was looking originally. So basically Umm no, not according to the manufacturer that would be their acrylic version not this one. Anyone need a magnet cuz it’s useless for me. Guess it will become a very expensive chip clip ugh.
Makes cleaning the glass a snap

I keep this in the tank and clean whenever I pass by. Keeps the tank glass crystal clear. No more scraping and scraping.
