Which magfloat is strong enough for a .5in glass

Hello. Just wondering if a mini or small magfloat glass cleaner has a strong enough magnet to go through half an inch of glass for my 150g cleaner. Dont plan on actually cleaning with it, just wondering if the magnet is actually strong enough to pass through that thickness of glass.

My 110g has glass probably 3/8" to 1/2" thick, and I have a little 2"x3" mag scrubber that works just fine. I had to adjust though, scrubbing ONLY side to side and being careful about moving it, so the inside doesnt separate, but you said you didnt intend to scrub with it....

Id say get a good size one and keep the receipt and packaging.
