Mag Float

I ordered one of these and have a question. Can I leave it attached to the aquarium or do I have to take it off after each time I use it?
How often should I use this thing to keep the glass clean?

Nope. You just leave it attached to your glass.
Use it when you need to use it. I generally run mine over the front glass every other day or so, and around the whole tank when it needs it.

I leave mine in the back corner. After a while it will get covered with Coralline and blend right in.

Yes, when you come to the corner, lift the magnet away form the glass and move it around the corner and the inside magnet will follow it and go around the corner.
