Scissors are important tools in aquaristics in general and especially in aquascaping. They are needed to trim the plants in the aquarium at regular intervals. Scissors come in very different qualities, thus you'll need to carefully consider which pair of scissors of which brand you choose.
We offer scissors of all price levels in order to provide beginning aquascapers or planted tank keepers with reasonably-priced tools. Those looking for an especially favourable price-performance ratio will surely find something they like in our Flowgrow tools section. In their production, we focus on smooth handling and a high quality. Premium brands like Aqua Design Amano (ADA) offer you very attractive tools with designs that bring a gleam to the eye of any aquascaper.
Many forms of scissors are available. So-called wave scissors or wave cutters have been designed for trimming ground-covering plants. Spring scissors are used in nano tanks and in areas where great manoeuvrability is called for. Long scissors are useful in large aquaria, and shorter ones are great for cutting back dense bushes formed by stem plants. The blades of premium scissors are made of tungsten. They are especially hardened to maintain their sharpness for a long time. Whether you choose a tool with a matte or a shiny surface is entirely up to your personal taste.
