Tunze Care Magnet Algae Cleaner w/ Care Booster Floats - Long
The Tunze 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 from the glass panes considerably better than a flat cleaning surface - almost as well as a sharp metal blade. The life of each blade ranges from several months to approximately one year.
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).
The Care Magnet also includes a pair of Care Booster Floats to ensure that the inner cleaning magnet of the Care Magnet floats to the surface of your tank as soon as it detaches from the outer magnet. The Care Booster Floats can also serve as a convenient grip aid for the external magnet, if desired.
