Why do I need both straight and curved tweezers for managing aquarium plants?
Both straight and curved tweezers are used for moving plants and other decor in your aquarium. They are commonly used for removing dead leaves and any plants covered in algae. Straight tweezers are ideal for this most of the time, however, you may find that some areas are hard to reach, this is where a curved tweezer is useful. Bent tweezers can manoeuvre around a planted tank and allow you to reach almost anything, they are also particularly useful for inserting root tabs to encourage plant growth.
What do I use curved scissors for in aquascaping?
Curved scissors are crucial aquascaping tools for managing a planted aquarium as they allow you to trim stem plants and carpet plants at an angle and in difficult to reach spaces. Sometimes called 'wave scissors' these are some of the best aquascaping tools and will help to improve your plant maintenance skills.
Why should I buy this tool kit?
Aquascaping is a growing hobby but many of the aquascaping tools needed are still quite specialist, making the assembly of a tool kit costly. However, it can be very difficult to get the precision required for fine aquascaping work without the right tools. This kit comes with everything you will need for day-to-day aquascaping tasks, such as removing dead leaves or leaves containing nuisance algae, as well as a way to store your tools. This is the perfect way to kickstart your hobby or even treat an aquarium keeping friend as a gift.
