Help and advice on shopping for: Aquascaping Tools

Aquascaping tools enable aquascapers to tend their underwater gardens. Use a combination of tweezers, scissors, a shovel, and a spatula to move soil, rake substrates, plant, and trim live aquatic plants. A must for any planted aquarium.

What are the most important aquascaping tools?

If a scaper had to choose one tool, tweezers would be it, as they enable initial planting and placement of delicate individual plantlets. Scissors are also a very important tool in the aquascaper’s tool kit as aquascapes need constant trimming to keep them looking neat and to encourage new growth. Get an aquascaping tool kit to have everything you need to hand.

Straight or curved aquascaping scissors?

Straight scissors are best for vertical aquatic plant trimming but curved scissors are best for trimming carpeting plants where a flat, lawn effect is desired.

Do aquascaping tools rust?

Good aquascaping tools are made from high-quality stainless steel that won't rust when used in any freshwater environment. Nonetheless, they'll last longer if you dry them and put them away after use.

Do aquascaping tools scrape algae?

No, if you need to scrape algae off the tank glass opt for an algae magnet, a long reach algae scraper or both. Many aquascaping tanks are made from low iron, super clear glass, so be careful when algae scraping their delicate glass panels.
