g'day
my return pipe atm is just a bit of pipe thats hanging in my tank...I was wondering if anyone had any idea on how to attach it to the aqarium wall or something so it's secure. it's soft pipe so it's curled up a bit because it is packaged in a roll and it looks preety dman ugly.!!! Rolling Eyes

Could you clamp or silicone it to the tank wall? You would only be able to silicone it if it was going to be permanent, however. Hm...clamps seem the easiest, safest way. Just getting them in position....

You could use those suction cups. Find a set that fit the width of the tubing and it'll stay in place!

Some LFS's carry eyeloop Suction cups. They have about a 3/4 inch loop. you could give that a try if your hose is thin enough.
