    Hi, I've been using the OF surface skimmer as maintenance for quite sometime now.

    Recently the suction cup's not sticking anymore.
    It keeps falling off after a hour in the tank.

    Is there any life hacks that can get the suction cups to stick again? Or perhaps anyone knows where can I get the replacement. Thanks in advance.

    I read somewhere about boiling suction cup to soften it, but make sure not too high heat until melt it.

    if you have a strong magnet, you can use it to replace the suction cup..

    Thanks guys, I'll try the hot water treatment first.

    I have no magnets with me but I heard it's the best way to hold things.
