Flipper Aquarium Algae Magnet Cleaners Information




The patented design allows it to Flip inside the tank simply by rotating the outer handle!

With a large soft cleaning pad on one side for daily maintenance and a Flip over to a stainless steel blade on the opposite side for removal of hard algae, it is all you will ever need to keep your glass crystal clear without ever reaching in the tank!

Flippers unique design maintains an upright orientation at all times for easy retrieval.

Flipper is made with the strongest rare earth magnets optimized for fresh or saltwater aquariums up to 1/2" (12mm) in thickness.

Each Flipper comes with 2 blades!
One stainless steel blade to be used on Glass tanks only
AND an ABS blade for use on Acrylic tanks!

It is the ONLY magnetic aquarium cleaner that does it ALL!!!

FAQ

1) Is Flipping difficult?
Flipping is Easy once you know how, but it does require you to follow the instructions.
Flip in areas with low water currents and near the top of the tank where you have room to flip away from your rocks.

2) What is the maximum tank thickness Flipper can be used on?
Flipper can be used on glass or acrylic tanks up to 12mm (1/2") thickness.

3) Will the metal blades rust and how long do they last?
Metal blades are made with 316 stainless steel which is highly corrosion resistent. You can leave the Flipper in your tank and the blade should last for months depending on your use.

4) Does Flipper work on bowfront tanks?
Yes!

5) Is Flipper the same as a Mag-Flip?
No. Mag-Flip was made by another company using FL!PPER's patent license.
Many months were spent perfecting the FL!PPER with stronger magnets, stainless steel blade and a more efficient scrubbing pad.

Comments: Initially was happy with unit, but now, 3 months later the blade is rusting! Never could get the flip figured out but doesn't matter now because I can't have rust in my tank. (Marine Depot: "We suggest removing the magnet and wiping it down after use")

Comments: I have a 250 gal acrylic tank. Awesome product. Works as advertised. Cleaned off a lot of coralline algae, that was unreachable by other means, very quickly. Went thru a few blades, so order extra. As with any cleaning product you must be careful when cleaning an acrylic tank near the sand.

Comments: What a great product! Every week, in addition to my regular daily mag float brushing, I reach my hands into my tank and scrub the front glass with a scraper. It's cold. It's tedious. It annoys the fish and disrupts the coral but it has to be done to get rid of the hard algae that the snails and other cleaners just cant clean enough... but no more! This little scraper does exactly what is says it does. With a few swipes it breaks through the hard buildup, no wet hands required. Worth the cost. Period.

Comments: This is hands down the best cleaner I have used in all my years in the hobby. I'm using this (regular flipper) on my 1/2" thick Lee Mar starfire and the results are outstanding! It took me minutes to clean my entire tank when it would normally take me an hour or two with scrubbing, razors, and many other tools. I would also make a huge mess with splashing water outside of the tank and trying to fight off my clown fish with my hands in the tank. I stay dry with the flipper and it makes short work of the hardest algae!!! It even cleans the bottom glass near the sand bed without issue!!! I am completely in love with this cleaner. Do not hesitate to buy this, I'm kicking myself for not buying it sooner.

Flip how?

Comments: The Flipper is well made and is a solid magnetic scraper but not the greatest on hard coralline algae. I don't know about the metal blade for glass but the plastic blade on acrylic takes multiple passes to take off even small spots that are only a couple of days old.

Comments: Good design, does the job. A little difficult flipping but that could be because I have a shallow tank with high flow. Once you play around with it, it somewhat gets easier. Best magnet cleaner I've used.

Comments: The flipper is by far the best aquarium cleaner on the market. I had been without a glass cleaner for several weeks before I ordered the flipper. It effortlessly cleared my tank of coralline alge, and the other nastiness the grows on the glass. I wish I'd bought it sooner
