Tunze Care Magnet – Magnetic Aquarium Glass Cleaners
The New and improved Tunze Care Magnet’s cleaners avoids scratches on internal aquarium glass panes due to the clever design that only allows the “scraper” to touch the surface posed to the entire magnet.
Therefor even be used on acrylic glass panes with the small plastic blade.
The inner magnet is more than 3 mm (.2 in.) 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 on the Care Magnet 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.
For panes with a glass thickness from 10 mm (3/8″) to max. 15 mm (1/2″). Width 86 mm (3.4 in.) length 140 mm (5.5 in.).
Tunze care magnets now come (2021) with an easy to use foam handle making operation easier than ever.
