    I am looking for a solution that I have been unable to figure out on my own. I feed nori during the week and none of the clips meet my needs for the thickness of glass on my tanks. I don't like the suction cup style as it involves sticking my arm in daily and my 2 little fishies magnetic clip isn't strong enough. What do you big tank guys do to solve this?

    I have the 2 little fishies one as well, but the magnet is the outer piece I think....what would happen if you just replaced that with a stronger magnet? Did you place your magnet order yet??

    it's not strong enough though? Not sure why you wouldn't want to continue to use it if so. My tang doesn't get whats in the ribs but its so little left I don't mind. Even then when I add more I scrape the old stuff and put it in a spot where the tang can get it. If you find something better let me know though as I am always open to a better solution.

    Made my own with 2 smaller Tunze magnets and a suction cup style veggie clip. Pulled the suction cup off the clip, glued clip to magnet and VIOLA!

    Fishing string weight I attach to my power head magnet just flip it over and in then pull it out.

    Super glue the clip onto a mag float or other magnetic algae cleaner. I usually super glue the suction cup on so that the clip can spin.

    Here is what the magnet in TLF stuff looks like after a while. ...no issues from this, but I took it out as soon as I noticed:
