    I have the bigger one. The care magnet long. My only complaint is as @vioer357 says it doesn't float, it just falls straight down. But the quality is brilliant.

    I also have the nano. Apart from the same floating issue mentioned (I regularly knock it off in the corners), I also find that I have to use it regularly to be effective, even against green algae. Fresh algae always comes off without a fuss, but algae that's left for a while is more stubborn. Sometimes I miss a small spot, so it might be left for the following week (I only need to clean my glass once a week). After about two weeks I struggle to remove it, even with some elbow grease. I keep a cheap handheld scraper blade for those spots.

    For regular cleaning, I love the Care Magnet. I even use it to feed nori. A rubber band goes nicely around the section that doesn't touch the glass, and it makes it easy to move around the tank without sticking my hands in.

    And one more thing. It was meant for my dad's 15mm thick glass, but it's now on my tank as it doesn't work on the thicker glass. It falls off regularly and it only takes off the very easy to clean algae.

    I also have one, used on the correct size glass it is fine, my tank has curved corners so it's beautifully easy to turn it onto all sides of the aquarium.
