    Anybody use a Mighty Magnet on acrylic?

    I am getting tired of using the rods to clean my tank. At 30" deep its hard to get a good angle to scrape off the coraline. I just ordered a Mighty Magnet to hopefully help with this. Anybody have any experience with these?

    I've got a large magnet cleaner that I use on my big tank. As long as you get the one for acrylic, your OK. My biggest problem is the thinkness of my acrylic. It cleans but not as good as I'd like.

    When I clean the tank, I use a peice of acrylic that I cut a sharp edge on and use that to scrape the coraline. It works better than any store bought scraper and since I'm using some old scrap stuff I had, the cost was right. Wink But I have to drain half the tank to clean to the bottom. Wink
