i've heard of prblems with the acrylic one picking up smalbits of iron from the substrate and scrathing the walls. but i haven't personally experienced it. i use old fashioned elbow grease for the green spot algae (hey--it builds my biceps )

I've just started using the glass one and really like it. It works well. Of course manually scrubbing cleans faster but is definately not easier than the magfloat.

I really enjoy my Magfloat. Makes cleaning the glass simple.

Just do not get a small piece of skin on your fingers between the two parts of the mag float. LOL that hurts!

The big (about 8" long and 3¬Ĺ" wide) mag float that we use for the big acrylic display tank at my friend's shop is so strong that the two sides must have a block of wood between them when not in use....if they are put together, they are vitually impossible (literally) to pull apart. Costs about $200, too!
