Hi DanielN,

It depends upon the substrate but if it has a lot of iron in it then it will be attracted to a strong magnet. The Safe-t-sorb that I use is attracted to Neodymium Disc Magnets which are very strong magnets. I would not be worried about it at all.

No concern for the fish, but you will definitely scratch the glass on your tank if you have substrate in the cleaning magnet

Thanks. I didn't think of Iron.
Since it is safe and stuck to magnet, I think that is good for me, cause I try to separate the soil and gravel that he had.

It was stuck on the back of the magnet, not inside, but I definitely will be careful when cleaning with it.
thanks
