A really BIG store is E-bay. My 15" ones get used more than any other tool I have. Price shopping is essential there as many just
buy the first ones they find. Since I don't(yet) do carpet I don't feel a need for "wave" scissors. But in tweezers and scissors I
can't see that a straight one is needed so I just have curved in both...all from the Bay. The tweezers come up to 24" BTW.
Just put tweezers into search on there, or scissors.
There are aquascape companies which have the high dollar type if you prefer but I am poor so paying more than $10 rubs me
the wrong way. All of mine, the Tweezers and scissors each cost less than $15 with the shipping...from the Bay.
P.M. me if you want links.

Locally, Aquascapes has the best selection of varying tips and quality. I don't like buying tools mail order unless I know exactly what I want. I tried a few at Aquascapes before I settled on the Do! Aqua from there. It was a good balance between price and feel. I have the cheaper Fluval kine but cannot feel anything when placing a plant in the soil. Try them out and find one you like.

I got a pincette coming via ebay, but its been almost an entire month and its not here, mail order is kinda like... caveat emptor. let the buyer beware. haha. aquascapes is cool, they have generic tools at pets plus, but if I had the money I would preferably go to aquascapes or a medical store.

Cheap tweezers I would go Kalihi pets..... Quality I would go Aquascapes. If you got time to wait there is a guy on amazon that sells some humango tweezer for dirt cheap! Those are you options. Pet land has some but not a big selection
