Tunze algae magnet 12mm

Strong magnets, works good in my tank, but it doesn't float, so if your like me and you constantly leave your algae magnet in the tank then you'll have the cord constantly sticking out, if not you'll be reaching in after the magnet after it falls onto your tank floor.

Bad design

This magnet stinks. The floating cord will get tangled in your SPS and the thing sinks like a rock, frequently falling and requires constant adjustment -- WOULD NOT BUY THIS THING -- get a floating magnet instead; if it separates, at least you are not damaging your corals.

too small

strong enough to hold and clean well on thicker glass tanks, but too small to be efficient. Non-sloating is a BIG inconvinience.
