WHat is the magnifying scope called

i was at the LFS and saw an employee using a single telescope like magnifyer, i asked him what he was looking at and he answered "for any parasites, and mites etc.." and i took a look. It was a great magnifier and im trying to find it online, I am clueless as to what its called, anyone have any info on this magnifier so i can buy it?

It has a suction apparatus on the scope part so u can stick it straight onto the tank glass/acrylic so it stays stationary while u look.

Its probably a jewelers loupe. Do a search on ebay and pick yourself up a nice one.

I've been unable to locate anything appropriate for this and I've been looking for quite a while. Most high quality loops don't have the depth of focus that is required for looking closing at anything that is NOT right on the aquarium glass.

The best I've found is a good old, LARGE, magnifying glass. Think Sherlock Holmes and you know what I mean.

Why not just call the fish store and ask them what it's called and where to get one. They might be able to order you one, seems simple enough anyway. Or if you will email me their number I'll call for you, I'd like to know as well.

No sorry, thats not it! It has a suction ability on the lens so u can actually stick it to the tank glass, so it will stay in place, kinda if a camera had a suction cap around the lens so u could stick it to the glass and take a picture...
