Aquascaping tools
Where is the best to get my hands on some curves sissors and some other aquascaping tools? I know GLA sells them but they are really expensive.

Check out Andrew Hill. Not sure if he still sells them but that's where I got my nice pair.

Ebai. Cheap but they work fine. And check out sewing scissors. That's where the nude curved style come from. We just re purposed them.

+1 for Andrew/Rumford Aquatics. He is a sponsor here I believe. Either way his tools are the best for the price by far.

+2 for Andrew Hill (Rumford Aquatics) same quality without the 300% markup.

angled scissors, long handled scissors, long tweezers, forceps, etc--cheapest place to get 'em is as veterinary or medical suppliers.

The exact same stainless steel 24" inch long "planting" tweezers that a dedicated aquarium supply house sells for 11.99, I found thru a medical supply house for $2.00.

Andrew/Rumford Aquatics. Got mine sand leveler and wave scissors from him a few weeks ago. Couldn't be happier and it didn't cost me an arm and a leg. Quality stuff.
