Tunze Care Magnet Algae Cleaner Information




The "Care Magnet" is a breath of fresh air in the field of aquarium pane cleaner design, consisting of an ergonomic handle and special plastic blades made of wear-resistant high performance plastic. The patented slim Care Magnet is significantly more compact than conventional algae magnets with a large cleaning surface, it is unobtrusive and therefore able to remain within the aquarium without disrupting the overall scenery.

Why care? This glass pane cleaner avoids scratches on internal aquarium glass panes, and can therefore even be used on acrylic glass panes with the small plastic blade.

The inner magnet is more than 3mm away from the aquarium and thus prevents the jamming of the aquarium sand. The two plastic blades remove the algae considerably better from the glass panes than a flat cleaning surface - almost as good as a sharp metal blade. The life of a blade is from several months up to approx. one year. The low flow resistance during the cleaning with a simultaneous high magnetic coupling, makes a separation of the magnet nearly impossible.

The large blade should only be modified with the included stainless steel blade for aquarium glass panes with particularly tough algae, e.g. older deposits on the side walls or thick calcareous algae.

Suitable for Glass thickness from 6mm (1/4") to 10mm (3/8").

Dimensions: Width 45mm (1.77 in.) x length 78mm (3 in.).

Includes a replacement plastic blade.

Comments: I was somewhat afraid to order this knowing how hard it is to remove coral algae. It does work. You do have to put in some work to get the stuff off. I ordered the big one. Thinking bigger is better. It is.

Best on the Market!

Comments: Tunze has another good product on the market. The Care Magnet algae cleaner is the best I have used. For the past few years I've been looking for a good product. One that doesn't scratch the glass and you don't have to put your hands in the water. Yet very effective cleaning away the hard to get to algae. Everything about it the extra plastic parts that come with makes it worth the money. My only problem is the booklet that comes with the product said it comes with 3 blades. I only got one.

Comments: The concept is solid, and it does scrape well, but these cleaners are not well executed. The biggest problem is the dry side handle - It's fatiguing to grip, the slippery pads slide off the handle, and the end caps can end up scraping on the outside of the tank. I want to love it, but I'm going back to my Flipper.

Comments: I bought the nano scraper for my 75 gallon marine glass aquarium. It's the best scraper I've ever had. I love that it cleans stubborn calcified algae easily, especially on the aquarium edges. It removes algae right against the sand bed easily as well without disturbing nearby corals. I might be ordering another nano just to have lol.

New Twist on Glass Cleaning

by
Reviewers Rating Great

Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: I gave this 4 stars as opposed to 5 for two reasons: first, the rear end (non-cleaning end) makes a horrible high pitched screech when using it. I am hopeful that as I use it more and the edge gets dull the screech will go away. Second, although it is working as designed, the inside part sinks as opposed to floating like most other glass cleaners. If it gets into your rocks it is hard to retrieve as it is hard to grab with anything other than your fingers. Lesson learned, don't drop it! Aside from those two issues it is a very good cleaner. Easy to move inside the tank and its slim design allows you to get into tight areas. Overall I recommend it!

Comments: Using on 3/4 thick acrylic with the two small plastic blades.Medium strength at best, but was able to still remove some calcerous algae and light coraline on bottom part of aquarium wall.removes tougher algae vs flipper magnet. Good utility magnet for spot cleaning with design to minimize scratching with arched design. Would buy over the flipper for tougher algae removal but magnet could be stronger and will still need to use regular hand scrapers for large spread of algae.

Comments: The nano magnet works on a 75 gallon tank great. On stubborn purple algae it has to work a bit harder but can still remove it. It only comes with plastic scrapers. It is small in size and hides well in a tank. Large hands will get fatigued with long time use. It would be a better scraper if it had a metal attachment like its LARGEr brother. It can go around corners but if it somehow comes apart in the water it doesn't float and your most likely to have to move it closer to the glass to re-connect them. For it's size the magnets are powerful though and work well with my 8mm glass. It even works in the sand.
