    Need maxijet attachment DIY clip ideas

    My custom hood/canopy is such that I cannot place my maxijets (1200s) directly against the sides of the tank (which is what I would like to do). The clips that come with them stick out further than the clearance available between the tank and the canopy by so much that I would need to make significant mods to the canopy which I would rather not do.

    Has anyone run into this problem? Right now the maxijets have to sit about 4 inches from the sides of the tank which is a bit unsightly...

    No ideas off the top, but you might want to PM Blinky. I'm sure he could make you somthing that would work.

    Cheers!
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.

    I've attached a couple of powerheads to cleaning magnets using plastic ties before. You can place them where you need them along the glass, works pretty good for me.

    I have made myself some brackets with acrylics and use the "triangular" bracket that is supposed to be used with suction cups. I'll post a couple of pics this evening when I get home.

    Cheers!

    Here are the promised pics. I used either 1/4" or 5/16" acrylic, cannot remember for sure. I used nylon wingnuts and bolts. HTH

    Cheers
