Anyone want 24-inch tweezers?

I purchased 18" tweezers but find them "too big" for 55G tank. More fragile plants like Glosso or Marsilea were hard to plant with those tweezers. I want to buy 12" as well and work with those.

The only local place selling them is $89CDN with the scissors. I traded some plants in on them and got them much, much cheaper.

I love the 18" for removing debris and planting thicker stems.

I prefer the 12" from Aquarium Landscapes for planting finer rooted plants. The VERY fine stuff I use a surgical set of 4" needle tip.

If you buy from a medical supply place you won't get the sweet plastic scissor adaptors for the end of the tweezers!!

I suppose for a really delicate tank they would be great. I use my $3 long barbeque tongs and they do fine.....
