Two Little Fishies VeggieMag 2-3/8" long x 1" wide
The only seaweed clip that my fish can't knock off the glass
I have an 8" Blueface Angel and an 8" Clown tang, both of which are 24 years old, and they love dried seaweed (green or brown). Unfortunately, they attack the seaweed with such gusto and strength that they dislodge the suction cup type clips, even when brand new, after one or two tugs on the seaweed. The clip+seaweed then go floating around the aquarium and over to the skimmer overflow box. But they have been unable to dislodge this magnetic clip from the glass, no matter how hard they attack the seaweed. It's party due to the strong magnet, and partly due to the fact that the clip swivels/rotates. When the fish attack the seaweed, their energy only rotates the clip, but it does not dislodge.

So far so good, I had it now for 5 weeks now. Not once I had to look for it in the tank after the Yellow Tang and the Fox Face rip the seaweed off of it.

Great clip, but...
This clip is great, you can slide the magnet up the glass to clip on food, and back down to position where you like without getting your whole arm wet. Unfortunately, as mentioned by others, the wet-side magnet came apart after the second day of use, however a little dab of aquarium silicone fixed the problem. I have had this clip for just over two months now, and despite my large angel fish tuging daily with all his might, the clip is still holding together. I also like how the clip swivels when my fish tug at it, which absorbs the shock. The price is steep compared to the plastic suction cup clips, but I previously went through four, so this clip is already paying for itself. I gave 4 stars because it came apart after 2 days, otherwise I would give 5 stars.

Nifty device but could use better adhesive
I own a number of this magnetic Veggie Clips. They work fine but on a few of mine one of the black side plates glued to the white middle part as had the adhesive fail. The white middle part is like a donut with a strong magnet in the middle with a plate glued on each side.
I first tried silicone to glue them back together but that failed as well over time so I switched to a waterproof epoxy and that seems to be holding.
The magnets are really strong and they may be failing because I am constantly removing them from the glass (pulling them apart) in order to clean the vegetable debris off the inside clip. If you just left it attached they would probably never fail.
