Raymond S. Seller advantsino has 15" ones on the Bay for $15.
Really you can just put tweezers into their search and then click aquarium supplies.
That is where I get tweezers/scissors from...just shop and don't jump on the first ones you see.
I have a set of one each 10" tweezers and 10" scissors at each tank and one 15" tweezers but use the 15" tweezers most.

P.S. If you look for them on there you can find them at 24" long.
Pinsettas are just a finer type point on them.

I actually no longer have hair algae....amano shrimp and some floating plants solved it all.

Thanks for asking.

Cool, let me know what you find.

thanks.

Would you consider getting your hands wet?

They're sorta precise?

I'm not a fan I like the needle precision but my dad likes using them to stay dry while messing with the tanks.

What is your goal with the tool?

Longer slim tools are tough to get.

I need long precise tweezers...do you have any?

Occasionally I'll see a thread of algae in my moss tank so I need something to remove it. I need a pretty precise tweezer or pinsettas (no idea on the difference between these two)....need them to be more than 12 inches long. Anything like this available?

thanks.
