air stone/bubbler

I have an air stone in my 5.5 gallon tank. It keeps coming out from the gravel and floating above the gravel and doesn't look as nice...

how can i safely get it to stay under the gravel? is there any sort of weight I can attach to it? I have burried it under the gravel but it still comes out constantly and is just not as pretty...

you could try little suction cups that fix to the side of the tank and fit the air tube on the suction cup should help keep it underneath.

I suggest either attaching it to a rock with a rubber band. Or you can get little suction cups that go on air tubing and stick it to the wall at the bottom of the tank.
