Problem with Aquaclear 110
I am having an issue with the basket that holds my foam block and bio-max in my aquaclear 110. It stays in place sometimes for a few days/hours/ or even seconds and then one side will pop up which forces the biomax out of the water. it also causes my foam block to not be level as one side is now higher on the right side. It is frustrating to constantly try to push it down only to see it rise back up out of the water. Does anyone know of any remedy to the problem? Thank you

Same thing "used" to happen to me until I found out I was not cleaning the sponge well enough. Once it gets really dirty and water will not pass through it, it will pass around the sponge and push it up rather than pass through the sponge.
I also run two filters so I also replace that sponge now and then.

+ 1 to cleaning the sponges
I have to admit I have never had this problem and I don't even run lids on my 110s but then again I clean my sponges very regularly :-P.
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
