"Thin" Algae Magnet Scrubber?

My MagFloat is about 1 inch thick on the side that goes into the tank to do the scrubbing. I have one or two spots where the Live Rock is only about 1/2 an inch from the glass, so the MagFloat is too big to scrub there

Can anyone point me to an Algae Magnet scrubber that is thinner than an inch on the inside?

I have an aquarium system "twister" that is 1" thick total, so each half is about 1/2". The side in the tank is about half the thickness of the mag float in my other tank.
