    so i wanted to share this with you guys since its been working out great for me.
    all in all a magfloat does a pretty good job of cleaning the glass. but if you dont do it every couple days sometimes it builds up a little more than the magfloat can handle.
    This will scrape alot better than the original magfloat and plus you can change it out when it gets to dirty.
    NOT SURE IF ITS SAFE FOR ACRYLIC!!!! i use it on my glass tank all the time and it works awesome.

    all you need is one of these. DOBIE PAD:smoking:

    when you take it out it looks like this
    [​IMG]
    cut one side near the top all the way across.

    pull out the foam inside and you will end up with this.

    i think you get where im goin with this.

    slide the magfloat in the dobie pad casing.

    ENJOY CLEAN GLASS!!!!

    ohh as a bonus u get a free sponge to clean dishes with so your significant other wont yell about dirty dishes anymore!;D
