Default Questions on Pruning equipment..........

I have been using the Long Narrow like sizzers ( got em from aquabotanic) that is supplied in a kit.. I think you get Tweezers, Rake.
as well on this.......

Anyways,
I'm really haveing a hard time on trimming my forground plants
(ricca for one) simply because of the limited spacing in my 20 gal.
Doesn't someone carry a little smaller version of these by chance????

I like how they cut in general, only problem is when the actual tips come
together over time they sometimes don't stay together. Therefore not
obtaining a real Clean Cut.... etc...

Any Suggestions??

Try looking in the cosmetics department of your local Wal-Mart/Target/etc...In the section that stocks manicuring tools you should be able to find a small (4-5") curved tip scissor there (along with nail clippers, etc...).

I picked these up at a local store and sold about 20 sets on Aquabid.


Try doing a search for surgical stainless steel scissors. Searching yahoo's shops showed alot of stuff for about 5 or 6 bucks. Work great for trimming. Mine are about 6 inches and I like them. Makes a huge difference if you ask me.
