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. With the blunt blade insert you even can remove very stubborn deposits (e.g. calcareous algae).

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.

An algae magnet has never been more effective

At first glance, the floating magnet tends to appear unspectacular. It only has one blade for removing stubborn algae which is attached on the side.
