If you have a deep tank.....check it out

I just found this gadget made by Hagen called the Multi- Tool, it's basically a 20" prong/tweezer that has an interchangable head for a scissor. Now I don't have to go swimming anymore. I hesitated buying a 8" scissor b/c I knew that it wouldn't help in a 36" tank

got mine from www.bigalsonline.com .

this is a great tool. I wouldnt be able to cut my Lotus with ease without these in my 110g.

i also use it to tool feed some of my fish (make sure they get their proportion).

I got it at Petsmart I know I paid 2 more bucks than online but its not worth the shipping or the waiting. I paid 15.99 and I can snip plants on the bottom now!!

I thought about getting one, but I seem to have better control on which stems I want to snip with smaller scissors or my 10" scissors...I think I may be too clumsy and crop off the entire plant by accident if I had one of those

Re-boot!

i am guilty of this

happens when you get "too comfortable" with your "skills". start clipping away and wonder why most of your plant floats to the top! then it is, "OOPS!"

definately a disadvantage. I clip my Java Fern with regular scissors. Mainly use my Pinchers/Tongs on Lotus.

The only thing I would cut with 10" scissors would be floating plants. My tank is 30" high and the hood is 10" high. Hood is tooooo heavy to take off. I have no choice, just takes a little bit of being careful.
