This magnet is super strong and works great. Just be ware of a few things...
- Don't let your kid's play with it. The strength of the magnets is dangerous
- If you get your fingers between the two magnets, it is going to hurt... speaking from personal experience.
- Be sure the cleaning pad is very clean before you start scrubbing. Because of the high clamping force, this magnet will scratch GLASS if there is even a little grit in there.
I highly recommend this product.
So I put the velcro on and used this on a small part of my aquarium. I don't have algae just a bit of cloudiness from my 300 pounds of white gravel still being new (even though I washed the gravel for 5 hours). It did remove the cloudy streaks on the section I used it on but I am returning it for 2 reasons. First this didn't actually "come with an extra cleaning pad as advertised" because the one pad was already being used on the "wrong" side of the device. I tried peeling it back from the wrong side and it does not want to come off easily and leaves industrial strength sticky residue behind. Second I am concerned that with the velcro on the wrong side it with hurt my extremely friendly fish if they swim by and rub against the extremely harsh velcro or the glue residue will not come off and it may not be good for the fish to be exposed to glue residue especially if I leave the hammerhead attached to my tank as I had planned to do.
Update: 3 stars. After using this magnet for a while, it would stick in its location occasionally, and didn't do a great job at cleaning coralline, even with the scraper attachment. I recently purchased a Flipper Aquarium Algae Magnet Cleaner and highly recommend it. It makes short work of any coralline, and moves a lot smoother than the Hammerhead.
Like others mentioned, this magnet is no joke, it's insanely powerful. I drop it into my tank and it takes me practically no time at all to clean the 3 sides of the 120g tank since the magnet is so strong. That being said, Algae Free (AG) sized there magnet cleaners appropriately and you shouldn't upsize or downsize the magnet. AG makes 4 sizes. The Piranha is for 1/4 - 3/8 thick tanks, The Hammerhead is for 1/2 - 5/8" thick tanks, The Tiger Shark is for 5/8 - 3/4" thick tanks, and the Great White is for 3/4" to 1" thick tanks.
The cleaner also comes with replaceable/removable pads. The wood size has a super smooth velvet pad to keep the outside of the tank protected. The plastic interior one has the option for an acrylic pad or a glass pad. The package came with an extra of each pad which was nice. Lastly, the wood does look really nice, but since you really shouldn't keep the magnet permanently in your tank (corraline/debris build up which can then scratch the tank when you clean), who cares how fancy it looks?

This cleaner/scrapper is amazing. It does really well in my tank. Only thing you have to be careful on is if you have curved edges where the scraper will scratch your acrylic. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Samuel Sorto
WOW ! Works like a dream. Make sure to follow the directions by SLIDING the magnet together and not letting it slam into the glass. It is worth the price.Published 12 months ago by Katie Westland
