ripariumsupply com, he is on TPT, and his previous version of planters used magnets. PM or email - he still might have them.

We quit making those magnetic planters. The cost of the neodymium magnets increased a lot. I have always had an easier time using the regular suction cup planter. The magnetic planters were pretty tricky. I once busted the glass on a 10-gallon tank in dramatic fashion (water everywhere) when one of those magnets slipped out of my hand and slammed into the glass.

I have been using the suction cup planters for the past two years from Hydrophyte and they are holding up well. I initially considered getting the magnets but these planters changed my mind for good.

Suction cups + drill + plastic food container = planter?

Or check bath utensils holders at $ stores / Amazon / etc.
