So you want an easier way to clean your aquarium do you? Well, aquarium magnets could be just the thing for you. Here we will review products to find the best magnet to clean aquarium glass. But, not so fast, there are a few things you need to know about the dangers of these magnets before you run out to get one. If you have sand or fine crushed gravel (most saltwater tanks nowadays) then you need to be very careful when using the magnet near the sand line. One small grain of sand caught between the magnet and the glass can leave a nasty scratch. This goes double if you have an acrylic tank since acrylic scratches much easier than glass (although, most scratches can be removed from an acrylic tank. Scratches in glass are there forever.)Regardless of the type of glass cleaner selected, care must be taken to avoid damaging the aquarium itself. If metal blades (especially razor blades) are used, they should have rounded or beveled corners to reduce the risk of slicing the aquarium sealant. They should also be replaced regularly; even a single nick in the blade will cause unsightly scratches on the inside glass applied forcefully. Plastic blades are a bit safer, but can still slice silicone seals if used carelessly. Scrubbing pads are generally safest, but even a few of these appear to be repackaged kitchen pot scrubbers that are tough enough to scratch glass. Aquarists with acrylic tanks need to be cautioned that even lightly abrasive scrubbers (and all scrapers) can be too rough; if it doesn't say "Safe for Acrylic Tanks" on the label, forget it.. Finally, hobbyists should be advised at the point of sale that aquarium gravel caught in the scrubber or scraper can make many deep scratches in a hurry.
