I think I would wrap a piece of twist-tie or the smallest zip-tie around the split chopstick. As it shrinks and swells the card will get loose. Even a rubber band, though they will rot with time.
I still use my Pet Smart card for its original purpose, but the Pet Co card has been an algae scraper for so long all the color is wearing off.

|tinkerpuppet||That's great! I've been trying a few different things to level out some sand, that looks like it would be perfect. Thanks for sharing!|

DIY Substrate Leveler
Just thought I'd share something I made today.
Chopsticks (the ones you get at take-out places will suffice)
Card of some sort (I recommend a petco or petsmart card because their thinner than a credit card)
Total Cost: $0
Time to build: About 5 minutes (writing this thread took longer)
Step 1: Gather materials
Step 2: Cut the wide end with the razor
Step 3: Bend the razor to slip the wood
Step 4: Insert card of choice
Bigger Petsmart card
In action in my new Fluval Chi that I picked up yesterday during Black Friday at Petsmart
And it floats!
Thank you for taking the time to read through the thread
