  I'm with the scratcher on this one! Tried using it on my Biorb60 and it has left a trail of scratch marks on the outside of the tank wherever it goes. I tried protecting the outside of the tank by putting a microfiber cloth between the surface and magnet but this reduces the attraction between the two parts and makes the cleaning ineffective. Stick to the acrylic pads.

  I bought this for my biOrb 105 as there was so much algae growing and found that NOT moving the cleaner in a circular motion doesn't scratch at all- and Reef-One say use in a circular motion (I wouldn't). For me I am pretty satisfied as my algae troubles have gone (It's better than using the Cleaning Pads as it saves being nipped by 40 Guppies while my hands are in the water!)

  i found it was no good for acrylic tanks as it just scratches the surface, currently using on a glass tank...

  Purchased the magnetic algae remover for use with my biube, works perfectly. no scratches! If the cleaner become detached in the tank it floats to the surface.

  This product does exactly what it doesn't say 'on the tin': it scratches. Instantly marring the appearance of your Biorb by causing permenant scratches both above and below the surface of the sphere. Within seconds the tiny gouges in the plastic appear, making me glad I bought the scratch remover and polish at the same time. I feel this product is also overpriced and the only reason I keep it is because I can use it on my cold glass aquarium and I also don't want to pay the postage fee for the return. In summary, for the biorb, this is worse than useless.

  This doesn't remove algae spots at all. Other reviewers must have some really weedy algae!

  I think this is brilliant!! I'm able to keep my tank algae free between filter changes! Have bought the mother-in-law one for her tank to stop her constantly stealing mine!

  I have had no problems with my cleaning magnet, I think its brill. As my tank is underneath the stairs it is difficult to empty the whole tank so I find the magnet so much easier than emptying under my stairs to get the tank out to clean. my children love cleaning the tank & have lost the outer bit so I need to order a new one, I have got scratches on my tank but I think its because the kids have been a bit ruff with it.

  I used the Biorb cleaning pads and they do the same. The trouble lies in the plastic the Biorbs are made from and not the cleaning tools we're using. If you were to use these cleaning products on a glass tank you wouldn't get scratches. But you're right about the scratches showing up more when the Biorb is empty (good thing we fill them for the fish!)

  My Biorb has become scratched and someone told me it was caused by using the Biorb Magnetic Algae Cleaner because the same thing had happened to them.My Biorb is empty at the moment so the scratches really show up. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

  This is a great little gadget which makes tank cleaning so much more fun! It cleans the inside of the tank without getting your hands wet and is also good for getting rid of small bubbles that seem to accumulate on the inside of the tank after cleaning, condensation at the top of the tank and (heaven forbid) even dust on the outside of the tank. It is better designed than some I have seen as the internal magnet floats if it disconnects from the external one and the two are strong enough to easily retrieve it. Buy one - it's well worth it!

  This is fantastic. So easy to use. I have had some severe problems with algae leavings on the side of the Orb, but this has made it so easy to remove. Do bother with the algae cloths. This is so more efficient. I am a return customer and I can only recommend Charterhouse. They deliver on time, have good prices and are friendly. What more can you ask?
