Aquarium accessories?

Is it me or is it impossible to find accessories like Suction Cups from the LFS? (petsmart etc...)

The only place i've found is online with bigalsonline.com but it's silly to pay shipping for just suction cups.

I'm trying to make a spray bar but I can't find suction cups anywhere local.. It's very annoying.


Anybody knows if the hardware stores sells these things? I've been going to Lowes & Homedepot (an inferior Lowes) a lot.

I finally found the suction cups I was looking for. The last LFS in my city. It seems like they're the only one to sell parts/accessories for filters.. The big chain stores don't for some reason even though they sell the big canister filters.

And I checked out Wal-mart too... they're horrible.. Oh! they're selling ghost shrimps now. The price wasn't listed though. I was curious.

a lot of LPS have suction cups for under gravel filter lift tubes
that come 2 in a pack that would be appropriate for a spray bar.
