    I don't. The knob on the end of the suction cups rests inside the natural opening in the ends of the bamboo, and the bamboo itself pushes against the suction cups a bit for a snug fit- keeps the suction cups pushed firmly against the glass. It's actually a bit of work to break the suction enough to move them once they're in place lol

      Is the bamboo cut a 1/2 or 1/4 inch shorter than the inside of the tank measures?

            Thanks!

            I'm lucky to have a neighbor who appreciates the help thinning his out, it grows so fast. He lets me take however much I need.

              lucky laura I wish I knew someone growing bamboo!

              They all look nice, I personally keep my kochi set up natural and for a feeding ledge I am actually using a suction cup soap holder made by best grips...those suckers are strong you have to use a special tab in order to get them off as they are spring suctioned!
              lets just say I have a lot of stuff

                I love all of your Phelsuma posts...I'm learning a lot from them! Thanks for all the updates.
                Currently keeping Correlophus ciliatus, Pantherophis guttatus, Trachemys scripta elegans, and Hemitheconyx caudicinctus.
                I have also kept Phelsuma klemmeri, Eublepharis macularius, Rhacodactylus auriculatus, and Lampropeltis getula californiae.
