Good pruning scissors for nano tank?

I find I am constantly having to cut back leaves in my 2.5 gallon tanks because the plants overgrow the space. I have been using just a normal office scissors or kitchen shears but it would be nice to find something long handled, with just an inch or two of cutting blades on the end. Ideas?

Ebi Ken spring scissors look pretty nice and good for small spaces.

go curved!!!

i have small tanks too and the straight scissors are killer to work with in such a small space.

1 6 gallon
1 2 gallon 8" cube
1 10 gallon endlers tank
1 betta

Here they are

6 gallon journal

you can see more photos here the 4 8" cubes are on flicker... will get to their journal at some point (they are fun as they change often)
