Product information

Easy to use
Separate the swimming internal element from the external element and lay it on the water next to the aquarium pane. Hold external element close to the aquarium pane to attract the swimming part. Move the magnet from the outside with light circular movements over the aquarium pane surface.

Convenient to use
A protruding cleaning edge even allows access into hard-to-reach spots, such as behind technical aquarium devices. Reaches into corners easily without you getting your hands wet.

Gentle on the aquarium
The edge protection, patented by JBL, protects the silicone seams with the help of angled edges. The swimming internal element can’t fall into the gravel, causing trapped gravel stones to scratch the pane. There is no need to “fish around” in the aquarium any more if the inner part becomes detached from the magnet.

FAQ
Are the algae magnets also suitable for curved aquarium panes?

With curved panes, an algae magnet, such as the JBL FLOATY, cannot fully lie on the surface to clean the soiled areas effectively and powerfully. Only the edges of the FLOATY rest on the curved sections, making cleaning more difficult. Instead, we recommend using a cleaning glove (PROSCAPE CLEANING GLOVE), a blade cleaner (Aqua T-Handy) or the the glass pane cleaner (Blanki or WishWash).

Why does my JBL Floaty / algae magnet scratch the aquarium pane?

Scratched panes after using a glass cleaning magnet are always a sign of sand or gravel particles being caught between the inner parts of the magnet and the aquarium pane. The materials used for the JBL glass cleaning magnet are softer than the glass of the aquarium pane and cannot scratch it.

Video: JBL Floaty floating glass pane cleaner with magnet for clean panes

This aquarium glass pane cleaner is designed so that one part cleans the pane inside the aquarium while you move its magnetically connected outer part on the outer pane. Should the inner part lose contact, it floats to the water surface and you can simply use the magnetic outer part to re-engage it.

Cleaning the Terrarium

Of course, the time spent daily cleaning a terrarium primarily depends on the type of and number of animals being kept. Snakes that only need to be fed every 2-3 weeks or single animals generally produce far less dirt than animals that need to be fed daily or large groups.

Der Floaty tut deinen Job sehr gut.

Bei lästigen Algen an den Scheiben kommt er stellenweise an seine Grenzen!

Aber bei leichten Belägen die sich eben mal schnell Ansiedeln ist er einwandfrei. Harte Beläge schafft er dennoch man muss dann halt mal öfter drüber :D.

der floaty II in der gr. L tut seinen job sehr gut. ich habe ihn für mein meerwasserbecken verwendet und er hat selbst die stark veralgten stellen zuverlässig gereinigt. an manchen stellen musste man zwar zwei- oder dreimal drüber, aber andere scheibenreiniger schaffen es selbst dann nicht.

also ich bin sehr zufrieden mit dem teil.

Ich verwende den Floaty II M für meine Aquarien mit einer Glasstärke von 10 und 12mm und er hält sehr gut und macht was er soll. Er liegt gut in der Hand und durch seine Größe ist man auch sehr schnell mit der Reinigung der Scheiben fertig. Zum entfernen von zb Algen sehr gut geeignet.

Ohne floaty geht es eben einfach nicht. Super schnelles reinigen zwischendurch ohne kratzen oder scheuern. Die Scheiben sind kinderleicht damit zu säubern.

Ich habe den Floaty II in Größe L und bin sehr zufrieden damit. Der Magnet ist sehr stark, sodass er sich perfekt für dickere Scheiben eignet. Algen bekommt man damit problemlos weg. Auch die hervorstehende Reinigungskante ist sehr praktisch, um Algen hinter Filterelementen etc. zu entfernen.

Klare Kaufempfehlung!
