I'm looking for a magnet glass cleaner (think magfloat) but for thicker glass. My tank is 3/4" and I'm having trouble finding anything. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places? So far, I've found one. It was $150! Seems a little absurd for what I'm getting, but it is something I need. Suggestions?

Rare earth magnets are expensive. But it's worth it. I have a algae free great white

Big magnets for thick walls are expensive. I recently bought a mighty magnet and would have been thrilled to only pay $150. You could try stacking stronger magnets onto the dryside of your current unit. I have done this with my mag shelf thingees and it helped a lot. KJ Magnets is a good source, though even their strong magnets are not cheap.

Thank you for your replies. I will check out the suggestions. I suppose I should just suck it up. :P

Whatever you do, get one that floats!
