If you're talking lead lead (element Pb), I would be worried, since lead could leach out in the water and poison your fish. You could try solid plastic or a metal that is KNOWN not to harm fish. I can't think of any off the top of my head. However, I'd stay away from lead.

Suction could work too - you could get string to tie the wood to the suction cups. That's a better idea. :)
