Tape in breeding tank?

What does everyone use to secure the styrophome cup in the breeding tank? Do you just use a small piece of standard clear tape? Will the adhesive have any negative effect on the water and fry when the water level is filled beyond where the tape was?

I didn't use any tape when I used the styro cup, I just let it float and it just stayed stable. Once your male build his bubble nest underneath it's not gonna move as much

I don't use cups. Sometimes I use floating plants or leaves but I usually only put a dark cover above where I want the nest while the rest of the tank is either covered with something transparent or left open. I find it easier to control eggs/fry compared to when they are grouped under something.

I've used clear tape, and haven't had a problem with it.
