Mag-Float Question...

I am thinking about getting a Mag-Float for my 75 Gal tank and I am not sure if I should get the medium or if I should spring for the large.

I just went for the medium... easier for me to get into tight spaces. You'll still probably do the same number of passes anyways. Really up to you... no difference in how it will clean.

I just bought one for my 90 - they are great. I got the medium as well - easier to get into those tight fit spaces.

Word of caution on mag cleaners. Make sure there isn't any sand or hard particles stuck in the cleaning surface of the mag cleaner. It will scratch your tanks glass I know from experience.

having used 2 sizes of mag-floats, I decided the Kent pro scraper with the plastic blade is a better cleaning too. for coralline on glass, i just use a razor blade and a steady hand.
