Mag Float? Do these work?

I have seen them around here and there on tank pics.

Are these worth buying?

Sure they are. A quick once over daily will help keep your tanks glas clean from alge buildup.

I would suggest going 1 size bigger than is suggested for your tank size. This will give you a greater hold between the two sections and thus more effective scrubbing power. Be sure to get the acrylic version if you have an acrylic tank.

I actually did buy one but I wanted feedback before I opened it.

I got the 125 model which was the next up from 30(My tank size)

This thing will not be to powerful for my 30's glass right?

Still interested to see how it works around corners....time to dive in!

Just dont let it smack aganst your glass when you put it on the tank. Other than that its just the pull of the two magnets.

Well I just tried it....WOW. Now I know how I can see my fish!!

But, I am still a worry hound. You just drag it around corners?

Sorry for all the questions

Yep. just take the outside one around the corner and the inside one will follow.

Depending on how well its attached to the glass yes. But free floating coraline will lead to more coraline.

Thank you so much for the help.

I just finished doing the front and I CAN NOT believe that over $1800 and I never knew that this was so awesome!!

You know how much of a pain a newish tank can be with alage blooms. I can actually see my fish and corals.

Thanks

Sounds like you need to put your $.02 worth in here. Review the Magfloat
