New Tools Arrived.

If you have a moment check out RumfordAquatics.com there are now J shaped scissors, long straight scissors, and long curved scissors. Along with sand flatteners.

Which scissors would you recommend for trimming an HC foreground?

I recommend buying a whole set

But more seriously it depends the size and style of the aquarium and how wet you want your hands. All of the scissors can be used but the better ones are probably either the wave or nude scissors, or maybe the spring scissors which are awesome. The long curved scissors are also great and may be what you want.

It is all what you're looking for.

Sorry if that didn't help much, but maybe if you give me more specifics I can try and recommend something.

I like the spring scissors personally for HC trimming. I find the 315mm nude scissors are a bit large and hard to trim HC with because they're a bit hard to hold steady and use precisely (for me, at least).
