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: I don't normally write reviews but, for this product, I just had to. It is perfect for me! The acrylic blade easily removes algae and cleaning pad does an excellent job. The magnets are STRONG. The three most compelling reasons to buy the Flipper? - 1) The acrylic blade easily removed algae without scratching. I even can go down to just below the gravel line with no issues. 2) It is THIN. It easily fits between aquarium walls and rock/coral where others are just too thick to go. 3) The magnets are nice and strong and make the scrubber very EFFECTIVE. Love this product.

Comments: I have used many different types of algae scrapers for my saltwater aquarium and with varied success. The flipper not only keeps my hands dry, it really cleans the algae from my tank. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Comments: Received Flipper for usage with a new tank. Haven't had to use the scraper yet but the pad side cleans very well on 5/8 inch aquarium glass. Movement around corners is a snap. Getting the flipper to flip sides (pad to scraper and back) takes a small bit of practice but it becomes easy within a few tries. You need to be careful to not interfere with other magnetic things in tank (thermometer, circulation fans, etc.) as the magnet is pretty strong. I recommend removing Flipper from tank and cleaning (and drying) after each use. Pricey, but I think it will prove to be worth it.

Comments: I was a little skeptical whether this would work well but it works great! Scrapes the excess Coraline algae off well, and flip it over and it does a great job removing any film buildup on the glass too.

Comments: The magnet did not seem as powerful as that other floating brand, however it was plenty of force and cleans so much better. Scrapper allows you to reach the algae line behind the frame. I regret not owning this device sooner!

Comments: Ordered this great tool for my 55 Gal saltwater tank. I must say I am impressed by this scraper 110%. It exceeded all my expectations. I can't even say anything negative or something they should as to it. I had hard tough algae and it took care of it in seconds.

Comments: This has to be one of the best purchases I've made for tank maintenance in awhile! I had to resort to razor blades and wet sleeves to scrap coraline from the bottom of my 120. The flipper mows right through. I do have some really tough build up I had to work at, but most came off with one pass. Highly recommend!

It will scratch acrylic

Reviewers Rating Unsatisfactory

Comments: This scraper is not acrylic safe despite the claims to the contrary. It scratched the bejesus out of my 180 gal tank. The problem is not the blade, which appears to be acrylic safe, it is the two white plastic nobs on the wet half of the scraper that eventually start leaving very fine scratches on the inside of the tank. It took me a while to figure out what part of the scraper was doing the damage. Initially I blamed the blade. But after some experimentation I determined the cause. It seemed to have worked fine initially but then the nobs got abrasive. Soaking the scraper in mild acid to remove any possible calcium deposits did not help. So be forewarned.
