Okay, maybe this sounds a little crazy of me, but I need some help. Does anyone know where to get so great, no-nonsense airline tubing suction cups? I'm desperate, here! All of the suction cups that I've gone through just aren't...sucky enough?

As we speak, I am scouring the internet for the holy grail of suction cups, but maybe you can get me there faster.

I hope the title didn't trick you into thinking I had already found them. Or maybe it was intentional. You'll never know. :red_mouth

I've never found any that didn't need periodic replacement.

What are you trying to hook up? I have gotten good results using rigid plastic tubing to get it down inside the tank and keeping it in one place.

Keeping them out of the water seems to extend their lives. I prefer silicone over vinyl, and vinyl over ABS plastic. Rubber can be as good as silicone if it's high quality but it's never clear so I'm not usually too interested in it. Ebay will take you to lots of sources in China/Taiwan/Hong Kong where you can buy quantity at cheap prices.
