You could custom make some J hook brackets out of PVC and 90 degree elbows. Cheap and you can make them whatever size you want. Plus PVC gets covered in coraline in no time

Why not use neodymium magnets? They are extremely strong yet small. And when I say they are strong - I mean that they are strong with a capital "S" . They would not be as noticable as larger algae magnets.


Here is just one link to a supplier - if you surf around there are lots of them.

Wouldn't those rust in the water?

Not sure if they would rust - they are usually coated in nickel. If they were placed above the water line .....? You might even be able to find some that are coated in a plastic. Worth a look - they are used everywhere

I use Neodymium. Be carefull of the size though. I have to push my full body weight against it to get it to move. I encased mine in epoxy. Nickey isn'y the best thing for saltwater organisms.
