RoboSnail: a Roomba for your tank

robosnail

Probably one of the more unusual aquarium products I’ve seen in a while, but certainly something I could use. RoboSnail can best be described as a hybrid between a Roomba and an automatic pool vacuum. According to the manufacturer, AquaGenesis International, RoboSnail prevents algae buildup on aquarium glass by automatically cleaning it once a day. The constant preventative cleaning stops algae from taking hold on the aquarium’s glass surface. This product seems like a fantastic idea, especially if you have a tank that is difficult to clean or you’re the kind of person that doesn’t like to do constant maintenance. Watching the video below I do have one huge concern. As someone who has scratched their glass by accidentally picking up some sand with a magnetic cleaner, I’d be really worried about the product doing the same and then proceeding to scratch the entire tank.
