    Hey guys I have a normal filter that works really well. However the motor box keeps falling out. There was a piece of plastic that it snapped into but it broke. I tried hot glue around the seem where it snaps in the filter but that still wasn't strong enough to keep it from falling out. I just want to here any suggestions on what you guys think I should do thanks.

    P.S. Should I try silicone?

    I use Gorilla Glue to secure driftwood to eggcrate and plants to the driftwood and I have never had issues.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    Is that the only filter on the tank?...if so, the tank is underfiltered, you want 2 times the tank size worth of filtration...an AC110 would be perfect: http://www.amazon.com/AquaClear-110-.../dp/B000260FV6

    There's a lot of canister filter options for that tank, too...just depends on how much money you (don't) want to spend, lol
