    U use bottom right style. You need to remove the outside square cover for this.

    Alternatively you can also just put it on the substrate (as in the bottom right configuration, but the holder on the bottom, not the back), cover it with rock and let it blow out a gap in the rock.

    I use a piece of perspex. Just heat it up and you can bend it to your tank, then supa glue the one bracket to it and then put the pump on. Same way as bottom left but remove the "grip" attachment.

    Hows this way of doing it? [​IMG]
    I can hang it on the back wall.

    Those suckers are quite ineffective hey?

    Thats the one, if you can its better than the suckers.

    those suckers are better than most though, but still not failsafe

    So would this be the most effective way of running it?? Is it correct because I had to unclip the swivel and put it in upside down (else with the pump on the top it wouldn't be submerged in water?)

    Just want to make sure i'm correct here.
    And I'll be placing it on the back wall of my nano

    That should work, can it swivel from side to side?

    No, but keep it coming:whistling:

    It was the only piratical thing to do. The dam glass was in the way.

    The best way of mounting it would be with a SEIO Magnet Mount.
