    I have one for our Saltwater tank, and I love it. I'm going through a diatom bloom which I have to clean the glass sometimes 2 times a day and it does a good job of cleaning it up. Its convenient because it can be left in the tank, so no dripping saltwater on the glass and if you drop it it floats. They are useless on coraline, but great for diatoms.

    ha resorting to elbow grease and a scrubber pad... nothing like getting soaked! But it gets the algae off and does not take long. i just fear scratching the glass. Good to get some mixed reviews.

    Those magnetic cleaners are perfectly fine. The stores with scratches are due to the tanks being Acrylic vs Glass.

    IF you have acrylic , you should make sure its made for acrylic cleaning...or put a chunk of filter pad between the glass and the scrubber to avoid scratching.

    I have a magnetic cleaner and it works on some algae and is nice to use real quick before company or something like that.

    For the small green dots and other stubborn algae you really just cannot beat the sponge (do not use the one from the kitchen) and elbow grease. Neither has damaged my glass.
