Floating magnetic aquarium cleaner essential for routine maintenance
Keep your hands dry while you scrub away nuisance algae
The easiest way to remove algae for simple aquarium maintenance
Essential tool for convenient aquarium maintenance - magnetic algae scraper scrubs away algae and film without ever getting your hands wet.
Having a Mag-Float® on hand is as essential for aquarium maintenance as keeping a net and bucket near your aquarium. Scrub away algae without ever getting your hands wet, thanks to its clever magnet-on-magnet design.
Simply drag the no-scratch, felt-lined handle, and inside your aquarium, the scrubber follows, cleaning as it goes. Better yet, if the magnets separate, the scrubber floats right back to the surface, so you'll never have to dig around on the bottom. Models available for either glass or

Tips from our Techs
Because you never have to reach into the aquarium, Mag-Floats prevent toxic lotions or soap residue on your skin from getting in your aquarium. They keep your hands dry, and you don't ever have to worry about losing the scraper on the bottom because it floats when not attached to the magnet through the glass.
Instructions for Use:
Clean the outside aquarium surface thoroughly before each use.
Do NOT use Mag-Float® above waterline or on dry glass.
Use Mag-Float® only on aquarium material, size, and thickness of glass specified.
Remove all debris from the Mag-Float® prior to use.
Leave the Mag-Float® attached to the aquarium surface.
DO NOT place magnets together outside of the aquarium after its initial use, unless:
Magnets are completely dry. For longer durability, maintain the felt on the magnet's dry side (logo side that is placed on the exterior aquarium surface). This portion of the magnet does not float.
KEEP THE Mag-Float® AWAY FROM CHILDREN and electronic devices such as computers or pace makers.
Instructions on replacing the Mag-Float® Pad/Felt
Felt is applied to the magnet that contains the Mag-Float® logo.
Pad is applied to the magnet that does not contain the Mag-Float® logo.
Remove old Pad/Felt entirely without damaging the plastic surface of the magnet.
Apply mineral spirits on a cloth and rub plastic surface until all excess glue is removed (glove use recommended).
Wait until plastic surface is completely dry before applying new Pad/Felt.
Peel back paper backing from new Pad/Felt approximately a quarter of the way.
Line up the new Pad/Felt with the plastic surface area of the magnet.
Apply pressure to the Pad/Felt area that has been peeled off so it glues onto the plastic surface of the magnet.
Apply pressure to the rest of the new Pad/Felt as you slowly remove the rest of the paper backing. This will help prevent any air bubble to be formed between the plastic surface and the Pad/Felt.
Consistent, thorough maintenance is vital to the ongoing health of your aquarium and its inhabitants. The right supplies in your aquarium "toolbox" can streamline and simplify the process of cleaning your aquarium.
Regular water changes are critical to maintaining a healthy underwater environment. In addition to replenishing trace elements absorbed by inhabitants or other biological processes, water changes reduce nitrate levels which are constantly increasing.
