Penn Plax 5-Plus

Anyone have one of these? I got one for when I want to start breeding mollies or swordtails but it comes with no instructions! There are a bunch of pieces and it isn't put together. There's only pictures on the side of the box showing some things you could do with it. It has some, what I think are, steel holder things. I'm guessing they're to hold the container from fully submerging into the tank but I can't figure out how to do have them do that.

Well I've tryed that but they won't go on the top of the tank. I think the top is just too wide for it, it's got a black plastic part that's a bit wider than the glass. :|

Don't those move around though? I don't like if they move around because when it bumps into a wall my fish get scared.

mine just stays in a corner. i put my baby java fern in there so it wouldnt get sucked into the filter. (plus when i got it one of those lil things that go on the side of the tank broke.) it can depend on how big your tank is. the water resistance against it should make it go really slow. if i push it it'll go about 3 inches, slow down to a complete stop in about 8 inches.
