The Magfox is the name of the new magnetic hose cleaner from Two Little Fishies which we first reported back in March at the Global Pet Expo. While scouting at Two Lil’s booth at InterZoo in Germany last weekend, Julian was kind enough to show us some of his new wares including the Magfox and his new NPX Bioplastics. It is our opinion that Julian suffered some childhood trauma at the hands of some pipe or hose brushes because Mr. Sprung had ntohing but nasty things to say about these staple tools of the aquarium world, leading him to design a safer, magnetic hose cleaning alternative. The Magfox is more or less a Nano-Mag with the scrubbing magnet being small, slender and abrassive. Once we realize all of the things that the Magfox can clean besides hoses, like say real convoluted siphon organs like the Mame Nano Overflow, the MagFox and products like it will become more widely employed.
