Best one on the market still? What’s everyone use to scrape coraline? Got some hardy stuff in some corners.

No lie. It works well and lasts a long time though.
I have the nano one but magnets not strong enough for my glass thickness

Haha you tried to go cheap. You need a strong magnet hold to scrape coralline successfully. I use the $40 one on my 40 breeder

It's Legit...... 2 Legit..... I had the two little fishes nano mag before and it was not great, I ended up using the magnet for their frag rack instead and switched to the flipper nano. I have to say it makes cleaning the glass a breeze, from someone who had a tiny painful cleaner I appreciate the flipper and I would happily pay the money for it again. *****Still haven't gotten the whole flip thing down though kinda tricky.

Flip the magnet as you go around a corner

The tunze magnetic scraper is the best that I've ever used, but I've only ever used a few.
How are the magnets on the tunze?

Def get the one rated for your glass size. I bought the nano version for my tank and its strong, but not strong enough for tough coralline. I should have gotten the strong, or standard

Have the nano on it currently and isn’t cutting it. Thanks Matyas

I use the Tunze long with stainless blade on 3/8" glass. No scratches on the tank and going on 4 years with it now.
I won a flipper in a raffle. It might be better... I dont know it's still in the plastic box. I have not had the need to use it as of yet. Tunze still has not let me down. I like the Tunze design where only the blades touch the glass.

I love and hate tunze... I wish they came out with the floating ones asap... Tired of dropping it in the tank... Lol
That goes for both. Tunze isn’t the only sinker.
