Bladed algae magnet cleaner thingy
Posted 10 January 2012 - 01:40 PM
So I started looking around and decided to try one of these off ebay....
...less than £20 for the 'jumbo' version and uses blades rather than the usual velcro-hooks type material.
I wasn't expecting a lot from it, but thought it was worth a shot. It came yesterday, and I'd been leaving the algae build up a bit to give it a good test, well, it's cleaning ability is truly fantastic, my pita alage doesn't stand a chance and the normal stuff just disappears, in fact I don't think the glass has looked so clean in a longtime. It's construction is pretty basic, and the magnets are just about powerful enough for my tank (10mm?), powerful enough to go around the corners without it dropping off but I wouldn't want to go swishing up and down the tank wildly with it. The old cleaner use to be really 'draggy' in use, but this just glides around easily.
