heater location

Hi all,
I'm new here so please bear with me. I have done a search but have had no luck. My problem is the suction cups on my heater keep letting go. I would like to put it behind some live rock and let that hold it in place. Is there a heater out there that will let me do this. By the way I have a 55 gal.
Thanks

Do you have a sump? That would be the best place.

I mean another tank under your main tank for added water volume.

Try cleaning those suction cups very well and wiping normal aquarium slime from the spots on the glass where they are attached. That might help you.

Friends don't let friends use suction cups. Use these instead...
