Have been cleaning tank's a long time. These are the best, and with replaceable blades. Rinse off the salt water and the blades last longer

If you keep it flat and don't pick up any sand you don't scratch the glass. Be careful near silicone.

Why don’t you try the flipper it has worked very well for me doesn’t scratch glass (unless you get into the sand then you have a higher chance of scratching) the magnet keeps it at a perfect level and when they go on sale you can get them cheap i purchased 2 for 2 of my tanks and i love them

The flipper max is awesome and the best magnetic cleaner out there. But it's 80 bucks, and while great for in between quick cleaning, still not as thorough as getting your hands in the tank with a razor and getting some muscle behind it.

And as themeat said you will need to get your hand wet every once in a while but its well worth it does a amazing job
