    is it best to use a small mag cleaner rather than a large one?

    Size of the cleaner doesn't really matter. Is the tank acrylic? That might the reason why it's getting scratched. I have a glass bow fronted tank that I use magnetic cleaners and they don't scratch.

    Hobby Algae Magnets have two blades and guarantee to clean your glass without scratching mate whether bow front or flat. I bought a small version to try. Impressed with how it dealt with my tank but the magnet strength leaves a lot to be desired. That's now on my frag tank and I'm getting a Jumbo version now for the display which is a bow front btw.
