We all know that one of the necessary evils of aquarium keeping is scraping away that annoying algal film on the front and side glass. Some of us can't constantly get our hands in the water, and love the concept of a magnet cleaner. The problem is, many of the magnets on the market work okay...but they look- well, not so nice. It's been impossible to find a nice-looking magnet that also does the job well. Yup, until now! The design team at German manufacturer Vertex Aquaristik came up with a range of small, super-fun-to-use algae cleaning magnets, which, we dare say, makes cleaning your aquarium sort of...well- fun!
One of the coolest things about these magnets is that they look amazing when not in use. They're crafted from cast acrylic and polished to a glass-like finish. Neodymium magnets are aligned with metal plates, then fully encased in high-clarity epoxy and acrylic to protect them from the elements. A fine felt pad on the outer magnet helps to prevent scratches, while a special coarse cleaning surface on the inner magnet scrubs away algal films with ease like an eraser on a chalkboard!
With their slender profiles, these unique magnets easily slip into those hard-to-get-to places in small aquariums, and are surprisingly unobtrusive. Even the boxes they come in look good!
The "Triplex" (Dimensions: Aquarium Side- 3.93" x 1.06" x 0.47" Outside- 3.93" x 1.06" x 0.59") can service glass or acrylic aquariums up to 8mm (1/2") thick.
It's so much fun to use, that we dare say you might look forward to scraping algae!
Nah. Forget we said that. But this is a super cool device that can really make the maintenance of small aquariums a lot easier! The perfect balance of aesthetics and function.
