    Hey, I remember someone posting cool swivel mounts for fans in terrariums a while back and I was thinking of changing up the fan set up in my terrarium and getting one. However, despite searching every term it might be under I can think of, I can't find the post. I think it was in a somewhat unrelated thread so that is why I can't find it. Does anyone know what I'm talking about and have the link? That would be super helpful.

    I just make 'em out of aluminum angle with machine screws and nuts.

    It might have been me. I took some CPU fans from the salvage yard and made walnut swivel mount for them. The post is only a couple down under blestbeing

    Thanks but neither of these is actually the post I was looking for. It was a little plastic swivel mount with a ball joint. I think it may have had a suction cup at one end. I have tried to find something similar on the web but I can't find exactly what I'm looking for.

    My guess is try at any pet shop. some of them are meant to keep things attached to the inside of an aquarium while still being able to allow movement. Think of the situation then the application and then ask yourself who would sell something like this
