Rated 5 out of 5 by from The large $16.99 one works AMAZING! This magnet cleaner is without doubt the best algae cleaning tool I own! It is so easy to use, and makes cleaning the glass in my tank a snap. In 10 or 15 minutes I am able to clean all 4 sides of my tank without having to scrub! I noticed the previous negative comments, and just had to add. They either improved the product since those comments were posted 4 to 5 years ago, or those comments were written by peopke who didn't actually buy one of these! First off, it does have little plastic hooks just like velcro, but the hooks are so tiny, rough guess I'd say 1mm or 0.5mm hooks. They are plastic, and I've never seen plastic scratch glass. I have been using the large $16.99 product for about 3 months now, and I make sure to get the scraper down beliw the substrate level so I don't have a little line of algae around the bottom of the tank, and I just push the substrate and sand back. I've never had sand come between the scraper and glass. Also, the magnet in extremely strong! So strong I must warn you, I was holding the two pieces close to eachother in my hand to inspect the scrubbing piece and the magnet was so strong it snapped the pieces together, AND PINCHED THE SKIN ON MY FINGER, and broke the skin. It was very painful, like a paper cut times 1000 because it was ripped skin. So do handle with care, I understand the need for a powerful magnet, but if you're not exoecting it, it will pinch and break your skin. I saw a post about the magnet being so weak that it kept falling off. Well, definitely not with the $16.99 large one. That magnet is so powerful it is hard to seperate, even when you have the magnet on either side of glass. The only way I can seoerate them is to hold the scraper inside, and move the handle piece on the outside away from it. I can't just pull the scraper piece right off the glass. I suppose if you try moving the handle on the outside super crazy fast then there could be a chance the magnet gets bogged down by water resistance and might detach. But Ive never had it detach on me, and I have rushed through cleaning the glass with this and it stayed together like a champ. I mean I can even get the scraper to push below substrate level so no there is no algae above the substrate level. For most algae all you have to do, is pass over the spot a few times and it's gone. No hard arm workout required. For those tough buildups, I find if you do little circle motions it will get those big buildups clean fairly easily. This is the best algae cleaning tool I've ever invested in, and if you hate having to get your arms into the tank and scrub your brains out, than this is the tool for you. I give it 5 stars. Well at least the large magnet scraper anyway!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money, doesn't work well at all I just purchased the Top Fin Magnet cleaner last week. First of all, the cleaning surface is hard (like the hard plastic side of the that velcro material they use to hold your i-Pass car toll reader on the windshield), so I would be worried it would scratch the inside of my tank. Secondly, the magnets are so weak, they kept falling apart and even when the inside magnet was laying on the tank bottom right next to the glass, the outside magnet was too weak to attract it again without me sticking my arm inside the tank and putting them together myself. If I'd wanted to to keep sticking my arms inside the tank, I would have purchased a scrubber sponge cleaner and cleaned it manually by hand. In summary, this product was totally unusable and I wouldn't waste your money on it. I have magnet cleaners of another brand (not sure which off the top of my head) that actually work well and have strong enough magnets and superior cleaning material for inside the tank, so try something else...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money My first sign that is was not any good should have been when two halves were able to be removed from each other so easily. I have a 75 gallon and the glass if fairly thick. I purchased the largest model that PetSmart had at the time. They were out of the kind I normally buy, so this one looked pretty good. It had a nice grip. larger surface area and it was even a buck or two less. Mistake... The cleaner will barely stick together through the glass. You have to go very slow if you want it to clean even the simplest of spots. When you pull the outside piece away from the glass to release it, the in tank piece sinks. So now your hand is diving in the aquarium to retrieve it. It you bring it up to the top of the water before you release it, the curved shape makes it very difficult to grasp and it is probably going to the bottom anyway. The scrubber side is very difficult to clean after use. It holds all kinds of little gravel particulate that it picked up whilst it was resting on the bottom waiting retrieval. It takes three or four attempts to get it all cleaned out. Everytime I think it is clean, I stick it back in the aquarium and I hear another particle scraping on the glass. I'm done. This one is going in the trash and I am going back to the old trusty kind.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from this thing is a joke This product is a joke. You have to move it very very slowly for the pieces to stay together and it doesn't even remove algae!!!!!! Waste of money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better cleaner than others This is by far the best magnetic tank cleaner I've found. This one has a better hold on the glass so normally one swipe will get all the gunk off. This one might cost just a bit more but trust me - you get what you pay for. It holds onto the other magnet much better so you don't have to worry about it loosening it's grip and floating off in tankland. It is also much easier to clean and wash up. If you are looking for a magnetic cleaner to have around for more than just a couple of uses, I'd say go ahead and buy this one since you will get more than your money's worth.
