    I have a 6 gallon fluval edge that is adorable but a nightmare to clean.

    It's design makes it near impossible to get your hands (let alone arms) in it. And mine is stuffed to the max with plants and driftwood.

    I found the Nano Mag a little dream and it's super tiny and very low profile scrubber make it very easy to scoot behind plants and heaters and such.

    Just a fun FYI

    Looks good.

    Is it one of those floating magnets when it becomes unstuck?
    I found that truly a must for the Edge as when trying to move the magnet from one glass to the other it separated and sank to the bottom adding to frustration so I got one of these small floating magnet jobs, did the trick but still annoying. Lol

    Really hope that works well for you :)

    Unfortunately no, but because it's so tiny and low profile I'm cool with it. It does such a great job. I just use my plant pruning tweezers to grab it when I'm done.

    Ah, of course you have the 23l, thats much shallower, means much easier to reach bottom of the tank.

    Had the 46l, much deeper, can't reach bottom of tank! heh
