    I have an extra small pump now for extra flow in my tank since I have coral now.[​IMG] 
    The problem is it starts shaking and then the top that covers the fan part keeps falling into my tank at least once a day sometimes multiple times a day.  Wouldn't be so bad if those darn clowns didn't keep biting me everytime I reached in to get it out[​IMG]  Darn Nemo movie,j/k, had to get some clowns for my 2 year old!!    Anyways any advice on what to do?  Is gluing it ok or no, duct tape??

    I would put a couple small spots of glue to keep it in place. The reason for just a couple small spots is in case your ever need to remove it for whatever reason. Shaun

    How about a zip tie?

    I would take a lighter and heat up the ear that the pice slides under and bend it down a little so it is tighter.
