Tunze Care Magnet Strong Plus +, up to 0.98 in. (25 mm), Glass
Revolutionary new magnet cleaner! Only the blades contact the panes of glass or acrylic so all the cleaning power is transferred to the blades. This unique design also prevents debris and gravel from being captured and scratching the panes.
- for 20 mm (.79 in.) up to a glass thickness of 25 mm (.98 in.),
- width 86 mm (3.39 in.), length 140 mm (5.51 in.).
- Including a stainless steel blade and two spare plastic blades.
The Care Magnet is a glass pane cleaner which offers an ergonomic handle, and special plastic blades made of wear-resistant high performance plastic. It is significantly more compact than conventional algae magnets with a large cleaning surface, which blends into its surroundings unobtrusively, therefore enabling it to remain within the aquarium without disrupting the overall scenery. Scratches on the aquarium glass pane can be avoided by using this glass pane cleaner. With its small plastic blade it can even be used on acrylic glass panes to a certain degree. The inner magnet is more than 3mm away from the aquarium glass pane, and thus prevents a jamming of the aquarium sand. Be careful when using partially magnetic sand (Hawaiian Black)! The two plastic blades remove the algae considerably better from the glass panes than a flat cleaning surface - almost as good as a sharp metal blade. The life of a blade is from several months up to approx. one year. The low flow resistance during the cleaning with a simultaneous high magnetic coupling, makes a separation of the magnet nearly impossible. National and international patents are pending.
If the Care Magnet 220.015 or 220.020 is used on aquarium glass panes with particularly tough algae, e.g. older deposits on the side walls or thick calcareous algae, the large blade can be expanded with the included special stainless steel blade. This device is only suitable for users (including children) with limited physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, if adequate supervision or comprehensive instruction concerning the operation of the device is provided by a responsible person. Make sure that children do not play with the device (1)

Remove both magnet parts of the Care Magnet from the packaging and place them onto a metalfree surface, thereby precisely observing the safety instructions! Place the inner magnet part with the plastic blades as far up as possible on the inner glass pane of the aquarium (1). Place the outer magnetic part with the felt pads onto the outer glass pane and slowly bring them together (2). The optimal cleaning effect of the aquarium glass pane can be achieved by applying a steady motion in the length-wise direction (3). Through other movements the inner magnet could separate from the glass pane and sink to the bottom. The inner magnet is more than 3mm away from the aquarium glass pane, and thus prevents a jamming of the aquarium sand (4). However, it cannot be completely ruled out that a tiny grain of sand becomes jammed under the plastic blade in the sand zone, which can then cause scratches. Be careful when using partially magnetic sand (Hawaiian Black)!
The large blade should only be expanded with the included stainless steel blade for aquarium glass panes with particularly tough algae. For model 220.015 and 220.020 standardly included in the scope of delivery, model 220.010 expandable with item no. 0220.154. For this, the blue holder must be separated from the plastic blade (5), position the stainless steel blade (6) and lock it with the blue holder (7).
The service life of a plastic blade is from several months up to approx. one year. If the cleaning with the Care Magnet leaves algae traces on the glass pane, we recommend checking both blades (with the finger), replacing one or both of them if necessary (a replacement blade is included). To do this, pull the blade on the inner magnet upwards (8) and insert the new blade (9). If necessary both felt pads of the external magnet can be replaced very easily (10), item no. 0220.157.
