Feather duster problem!

i got a nice on from the lfs, BUT i am having a hard time keeping it still in the tank. I have a good flow so it won't stay on the lr, but when it goes in the sand, it wobbles and falls over, or stays in the tude until i fix it, what can i do to keep it in place??

Find a crevice to fit it into inbetween rocks . You could also lower your flow till it attaches however if it is not happy where you place it it will leave the tube and rebuild where it wants to ... I have all of mine on the sand bed with one propped between 2 rocks that make a swim through kind of like a "V" with a rock that fits over it making it a bit of a hole ... just becareful not to place rocks that are to big or heavy on it as this can crush them...

That is what I did with mine as Sadie is refering to. Used some small rocks to secure it.
