Stupid ?, any harm in leaving cleaning magnets on glass?

I was wondering if there can be any ill effects if you leave your cleaning magnets (magna float in my case) on the glass. Since I clean it every day, it's easier that way but don't want to have any issues.

Sorry, kind of a dumb ?,
Jim

Not a dumb question and no harm at all. However, it may decrease the life of your cleaner by eating away at the adhesive.

I keep mine on the glass but move it to the back. It may look tempting if you have children in the house.

Definitely tempting to little hands. I keep mine in the back of the tank too when I don't take it out.

its not a good idea to get sand or gravel trapped within the grasp of the magnet and then clean the tank. It WILL create scratches. Just a friendly warning!


Thats pretty logical dont you think?
