Easy to use
Separate the floating internal element from the external element and place it on the water at the edge of the aquarium. Hold the 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. With the JBL FloatyBlade, straight movements are more useful to remove the algae deposits in "lanes".
Convenient to use
A protruding cleaning edge even allows access into hard-to-reach spots, such as behind technical 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 of the aquarium tank with the help of angled edges. The swimming internal element cannot fall into the gravel and cause trapped gravel stones to scratch the pane. There is no longer any need to “fish around” in the aquarium if the internal part becomes detached from the magnet.
What’s worth bearing in mind when cleaning your panes?
The glass aquarium panes are, in contrast to the plastic (acrylic/plexiglass) panes, harder than steel. This means they cannot be scratched with blades or metal pads. However, the gravel and sand in the aquarium is harder and can cause scratches if it gets between the cleaner and the glass. So be careful when you’re getting close to the ground with the glass cleaner.
The silicone seams of your aquarium are also at risk. Avoid damaging the silicone seams with pane cleaning blades. Use a care glove (JBL PROSCAPE CLEANING GLOVE) for cleaning these sensitive areas.
