All,

I wanted to get a general idea of the tools everyone uses for scaping. Is there a specific retailer you purchase your tools from? Do you just pick up things from the local hardware store?

Currently, I only have a small pair of scissors and 10" forceps. Anyone else use specific tools which are very useful for moving plants and scaping in general?

Thanks!

Tools

I tend to use:

A pair of straight tweezers 12" for planting and moving.
A pair of 'bent' bladed 10" scissors for pruning
My pointing finger for moving sand and also releasing any 'baddies' from it.

I bought my tools from AquaticMagic on ebay
I also buy most of my plants from there and I also bought my Rhinox2000 diffusor and GambaXII bubble counter+NRV from them as well.
Seem excellent service and good quality gear.
