What piece of equipment does this plastic piece connect to? Powerhead?

Hope this photo is clear enough for you guys to help identify it.

I'm assuming it's part of some powerhead. Used to securely mount/fasten to the back of the tank.

I have no idea if the suction cup one goes with the piece on the top.

Any decent leads would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance....

looks like it goes to an aquaclear powerhead.

+1- yep, have an AquaCl powerhead my 29g Also have the identical bracket on my Nutrifin/Hagen CO2 system. It's just mounted the other way around...

29g heavily planted SA: driftwood, rocks, Angels, Corys, Rasboras.
8g Nuvo: Pineapple SuperDumbo, driftwood, java moss and crypts. A jungle.
10g 3x divided Betta planted with Blue Mustard Gas, Red Double Tail HM, Blue/Red Fire Dragon and snails.

Yep looks like the parts are for a AquaClear powerhead.

Which I don't have....

I do have a VINTAGE AquaClear powerhead that's NEVER been used. I trashed the Styrofoam box in because the styro package was falling apart.

I paid about $3 for it.

The brackets don't fit the NutraFin CO2 I have.

Thanks again guys for solving that mystery.

I believe the suction cup piece is an option. Attach it to the inside of the tank and hang the powerhead from it. Mine never stayed put with it... I use the bracket one with the knob adjuster- it stays in place better. Hang it over the tank edge, adjust and slide the the powerhead into the brackets. It's not as pretty, but my light hides it...(think my AC powerhead is at least 10 years old, still runs great)
