CLEANING IS EASY

Scrub it!

The large scrubbing / polishing pad is ideal for quick removal of daily film algae buildup.  

The pad can be used throughout most of the tank, but we recommend flipping to the blade side when cleaning anywhere near the sand to avoid sand getting trapped in the pad.

FLIP IT!

Start the Flip with the blade facing down since that is the natural orientation of Flipper. 

Flip in the upper areas of your tank away from sand and gravel, and in areas of low water current. 

When flipping, completely break the magnetic attraction by moving the handle at least 6″ away from the tank wall before rotating the handle.

Once the magnetic attraction is broken, rotate the handle 180 degrees and place the handle back on the glass on either side of the inner cleaner (don’t put the handle back in front of the cleaner, or it will push it away.)

The cleaner will then Flip back onto the handle on the opposite side cleaning element.  

Scrape it!

The corrosion resistant stainless steel scraper is ideal for removing hard algae deposits throughout your tank. The blade side of Flipper also has a safety gap which helps prevent sand trapping and reduces the chance of scratching. 

2-in-1

Discover our large polishing pad on one side and an efficient scraper on the other so that you can clean those coralline algae off without ever having to reach in your tank! The Flipper Cleaner is reef safe and ready for exterminating stubborn substances that won’t go away on their own.

Magnetic

The Flipper Cleaner uses the strongest rare earth magnets available, allowing it to clean glass and acrylic tanks up to 1″ (24mm) in thickness. Use two different types of interchangeable blades depending on the material of the tank for cleaning.
