Safe Adhesive?

So I am looking to a way to stick things in my aquarium, like the air pipe to the back of the tanks or simple things like that. I am looking for a non-permanent Adhesive for my fish tank. Any ideas?

The only adhesives that I know that are aquarium safe are silicone, suction cups, rubber bands, and the the mold-able Play-Doh-like stuff that they sell at the LFS for building rock piles. When I've need to attatch stuff to the glass, I've wrapped fishing line around it and secured it to a suction cup.

Several options...

1. Suction cups and fishing line.

2. Magnets, coated in aquarium-safe silicone

3. Drain the tank, and just use silicone. (Quasi-permanent, since you can use a razorblade and scrape it off.)

Personally, I'd just weigh it down with a rock on the inside of the tank, and tape the tubing to the outside. It won't go anywhere unless you have really rough fish.
