The Tunze Care Booster is an interesting accessory that gives their Care Magnets a special, once-forbidden ability. Up until January of this year a floating aquarium magnet was a patented idea that was manifested first in the Mag-Float, then the Mag-Flip and most recently the Flipper algae cleaning magnets.
Tunze must have been expecting this because instead of creating a completely new floating magnet, they’ve developed the new Care Booster which when paired up with a Care Magnet Long, Strong, or Strong+ makes them float! The simple $12.99 add-on accessory fits securely around the slender magnets of Tunze’s algae cleaner and since the magnet no longer has to fight gravity, it should make them a little stronger on the glass – our assumption, not theirs.
The Tunze Care Booster can also fit on the external magnet giving a much needed boost in ergonomics which is very welcomed – if you’ve got a large tank to scrape you’d much rather be holding this grippy foam than a skinny magnetic stick. If you’re a fan of the Tunze Care Magnets – as we are – or have several of them on various tanks – as we do – the Tunze Care Booster is a no-brainer pick-up to help make aquarium maintenance and having clean glass that much easier.
