How to keep airstone buried?

Hey everyone,

My airstone won't stay under the gravel I place on top of it. I bury it, but in a few hours, it's only halfway buried, and by the next day, it's on top of the gravel. I have plenty of slack in the tubing, so I don't think that's the problem, but I could be mistaken. If you know of any way to fix this, please let me know.

i use mini suction cups to keep my air stones down,along
with the tubing,and i have a non return valve attached also.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
