My suction cups die really quickly and are a pain to replace. Is there a way to hang powerheads onto the tank with some kind of hook? I know a few come with clamps, but I want to be able to hang any powerhead I want.

If you are handy - you could make a bracket out of acrylic and it's easy to heat and bend. Just a simple "U" with a hole threaded on the outside for a nylon screw and how every you want to mountt he PH

Hey, I tried the zip tie trick today on my Maxi jets and it worked great. I had replaced the suction cups put they still kept falling down an laying on a rock. So I zip tied one to the overflow with a black twist tie on the black overflow and can't see anything. THe other I attached to the down spout to the canister I run occasoinally that is in the far back corner. Now they are even more out of site before and wont fall down! Great idea, I loved it.
