Filter suction cups not suction-cup-ing...


I have a Duetto that suction cups on to the side of my tank... great filter, except that at least every other day I have to stick it back on.

Minor problem because every so often I shoo several almost-dead tetras out from behind it when it comes un-stuck at the top and not the bottom.

Suggestions? So far I have been able to limit too many issues by having my Mag-Float sit underneath it to support it, but the top still comes unstuck every couple of days.

If you can find a better sticking suction cup, i'm ordering some. I can't make suction cups work. I'm always sticking something back on.

I bought some clear suction cups at the dollar store that stick like crazy.
