    Does anyone have any tools that they like? I am looking for a decent set of scissors and tweezers but have seen mixed reviews for about every set i look at. Really don't want to spend $50 for a set, but also am willing to spend more than $2

    Any recommendations?

    I bought some 10" tweezers and scissors off ebay a few years ago. I think it was around $20-25 range. Ended up buying them when I got fed up with trying to plant microsword with fingers.

    Have to be careful when buying there though, lots of cheap ones that will rust up quick.

    Now these are UK prices but I have these:

    Fluval Planting Tongs http://www.amazon.co.uk/RC-Hagen-110...planting+tongs

    Fluval Scissors http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fluval-11076...luval+scissors

    I've had them a year now and I have no complaints. The tongs have a nice flexion so you cannot "over-grip" a plant and crush it. I also use a little pair of cheap nail scissors for trimming grasses and small stems.

    Planting tweezers, no-name straight tweezers. Small pair of stainless scissors, got those at ikea I think. An old 1.5 liter icecream container to store offcuts in temporarily and that's all I need reall.

    Bought some stainless tweezers about 10 inches long because I thought planting would be easier but found out my fingers work best.
    I also bought a small pair of scissors from the local pharmacy which cost $2.00 and they work well in combination with a shrimp net for catching the cuttings.
    Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
