For tweezers, I just use cheap ones from ebay. I have a pair of straight and a pair of bent ones. If you're looking there to buy scissors, get proper branded ones as the cheap ones blunt very easily and end up making a mess of your plants.
Mmmm I was after something longer than that DrRob, up to twice as long. Claire are yours long or the more standard 25-27 cm ones? I have trouble reaching to the subtrate of my Vision 450 even with a step up. Now I'm going to plant it up I need something that will make it a lot easier. I've seen this on ebay: Rena Aqua Scissors 50cm Long Handle Aquarium Plant Tool | eBay but I'm not sure how good it would be. Has anyone got/used one?
I had the same problem when planting my old vision 450 in my journal and found longer tweezers etc to be really awkward to use. I just accepted getting one side of my t shirt soaked and a sore back lol
We've pretty much decided to build a shorter base frame and just use the top of the original cabinet to sit the tank on. Problem sorted and it means I can put it against the wall opposite the sofa, underneath where the projector screen is. I'll finally be able to look at it straight on instead of having it as a room divider
