Question how to keep plants anchored

I had to go with plastic plants for the ease of care and despite the fact that I buried those suckers in a load of gravel, my snails have industriously upended them and sent them floating.

Is there any way to anchor them so that the snails can't upend them? I was thinking I could just affix them to heavy resin bases with some aquarium glue... would that work? any other suggestions?

You can tie them down to heavier rocks with fishing line or something of that nature. Thread doesn't work well, the water weakens it too much, but fishing line is a great choice. And with plastic plants you don't have to worry about tying it too tightly and severing the stems. I have used plastic twist-ties in the past in a pinch on real plants too. It's easier and far less permanent than aquarium glue. Probably cheaper too, unless you already have the glue.
