Mag-Float 500 Magnet Cleaner (Glass) - Extra-Large (up to 500gal) Information




Here’s a cool, new way of cleaning your aquarium without using any electricity. With the Mag-Float 500 Magnet Cleaner (Glass) from Pet Store, you are guaranteed a natural method of removing slime and algae from your tank by enlisting the assistance of a couple of magnets. This product has a dimension of six inches in length, 2-1/2 inches in width, and an inch in height. Knowing this, you get a clear idea that it is exclusively designed to cater to the needs of heavy-duty and thick glass cases.

The operations of the Mag-Float 500 Magnet Cleaner (Glass) are quite easy to understand. Its built-in magnets simply absorb any unwanted debris and material from your aquarium and the water. This is done by separating the two sides of the device. One part is installed or suspended at the top of your tank, while the other is plunged into the liquid. The latter, by using the magnets, will then float its way upward to reconnect itself to the former.

With this product, you never have to get yourself wet again when cleaning your aquarium. What’s great about is its cost-effectiveness. The main magnets will sustain their strength for a lifetime. Its other benefits are worth your money. It can be used on both fresh and saltwater tanks.

Model: Float-500
Up to: 500gal (1893L)
Glass/Thickness: 3/4"-1.25" (19-32mm)
Dimensions: 6" x 2 ½" x 1"

The Mag-Float’s Powerful rare earth neodymium magnets enable the easy removal of algae. By dragging the Mag-Float on the outside of the tank, the Mag-Float on the other side of the glass/acrylic surface follows, scraping off the algae with the pad. Most impressively, you will no longer get wet cleaning off the algae from your glass/acrylic aquarium. It will simply float up allowing easy retrieval. Therefore, with its unique floating feature allows easy and efficient movement around the corners of fish tanks, and you will no longer knock over decorations, damage corals and invertebrates. The cleaning Velcro pad remains free of sand or gravel, thus preventing scratching. The ABS plastic, injected molded and toxic free, allows the Mag-Float to be left attached to your aquarium surface at all times. This makes it convenient, and practical for the next clean up job.

Floats up to top for easy pickup. No more reaching your hand into the tank to retrieve. Strong enough to go around corners of the tank. Glass tanks only.

Great Maintance Tool!

Comments: I opted to get a Mag Float after I got tired of fishing my old algae scrapper out of my display tank all of the time and scratching my glass. But this one floats on it's own for easy retrieval, has a wide coverage area, and uses a Velcro-like surface on the cleaning side instead of fabric so you can scrub algae off instead of wiping it.

Comments: I've been out of the hobby for about 16 months. Lots of changes in that time. I really love the new mag float and the new snap on scrapper is amazing. It's a lot better than the old glue on type. Highly recommend this product.

Comments: I have used Marina/Hagen glass cleaner for many years, and I was hesitant on buying this product because of the price difference, but it is worth every penny. Much stronger magnet and will not damage my corals by falling on them. Cleans much better and you can buy replacement pads. I am completely satisfied.

Comments: This product works great on thick wall tanks, mine is 1/2". The cleaner magnet glides easily across the glass but effectively cleans algae. Just have to be careful to avoid picking up any sand that could then scratch the glass. The product is pricey but excellent quality.

Comments: Bought this Mag-Float for my 90 gal salt water and it is a great product. I've always bought Mag-Floats for my tanks and this is the biggest I've bought so far and its great. Magnet is very strong even with the thick glass. Probably had the whole tank glass cleaned in about 10 minutes!

Comments: The Mag-Float Magnet Cleaner is a great item. It works really, really well and removes algae from the glass. It's important to remove the magnet from the aquarium when you are not using it. If you leave the magnet in the aquarium algae and other detritus may grow on the magnet causing you to scratch the glass on the inside of the aquarium next time you use it. Overall it's a great product!

Comments: When I spoke with the sales rep prior to ordering the magnet, I told her that I had a 14 gallon bio-cube tank. She tried having me purchase a magnet for $84! Way too large for my tank so I ordered the magnet that was to be good for up to 30 gallons. Doesn't work well and leaves algae on the glass even after trying multiple times. Somewhat disappointed with the item.
