What’s the best magnetic algae scraper? Reef Hacks puts the FLIPPER magnetic aquarium glass cleaner to the test in this review.

The ONLY magnetic aquarium cleaner that does it ALL!!!

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, and almost eliminates the possibility of trapping sand particles.

It`s ultra-low profile can reach algae in tight spaces.

Features:

  • Flipper is made with the strongest rare earth magnets optimized for fresh or saltwater aquariums
  • Blade side has 3 contact points with a 3 mm gap between the panel and cleaner minimizing the chance sand will get trapped
  • Wet-side does not sink when magnets are disengaged, for easy retrieval
  • For tanks up to 1/2" (12mm) in panel thickness
  • Includes 2 blades:
    • One stainless steel blade to be used on Glass tanks only
    • AND an ABS blade for use on Acrylic tanks!

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.

A
It works best on squared corners. You can still get very close in a curved corner.

Flipper works!

PROS
Tough and strong
CONS
Doesn't float
REVIEW
I have both the standard and the nano flipper on a smaller tank and I have to say I like this standard one better. The magnet is stronger and it works better. The nano is a little underpowered imo.

REVIEW
This things works great, is easy and extremely agile. It also floats when released from the front magnet so you don't have to go digging it up from the bottom of your tank. I use it with the plastic blades on my acrylic tank.

REVIEW
This is the best scrapper I’ve used. I have a 30, 75, & 220 gallon tanks and have used small, medium, and large Mag Floats, hand scrappers, and of course the long pole scrapper for the 220.
