Customer Reviews

They work fine, just a little flimsy.
khmrafro
And these don't press together very firmly so it's hard to hold onto delicate roots, reposition the tongs, grasp again, etc.
Steve Erwin
Perfect for helping plant live aquarium plants without getting hands wet.

I have a 5-gallon planted tank with Crystal Red Shrimp and tons of tiny live plants. With the piece of wood that I have in the tank and the fear of smashing small critters, I bought these tweezers, Fluval Plant Scissors, and long tweezers without the bend in the tip. These are great for planting individual pieces of bunch plants and GREAT for catching and squishing snails. Who needs chemical snail control when you have the therapy and satisfaction of squishing them yourself? The tweezers made themselves triply valuable when I started a 65-gallon 36x18 planted tank. Even on a stool I am up to my armpit in water to reach the bottom. These tweezers make it possible to replant the bottom of the tank and pick up debris on the bottom, rearrange stones and wood, and minutely adjust anything that needs adjusting. I have used them to deliberately place tiny bits of glossostigma, dwarf baby tears, flame moss, christmas tree moss, and riccia where I need it and to hold them in place while using fishing line to attach it to wood, rocks, or in the gravel.

I recommend these for anyone who has a planted tank. The angled tips make even the hardest-to-reach corners easily accessible, and keep clumsy fingers away from delicate roots and critters.

Buy these on Amazon! Prime customers can get them in 2 days for less than half the cost of a fish store.

This must be some really bad stainless steel. These tongs rusted in no time. I only use them for my freshwater aquarium. I got them on sale, otherwise I'd be very disappointed.

I had a pair of no-brand stainless steel tongs I bought from eBay for 10 dollars a while back. It proved to be very useful and comfortable to use, I decided to look on Amazon to take advantage of my Prime membership. At the time I bought this, it was 10 dollars. I see that it is cheaper now, so it's probably worth the money at the time of this writing (11/14/11), but I would not have purchased this if I had known the followings:

- A bit too much resistance on the tongs when trying to grab squeeze the tongs.
- Round but non-smooth tips screeches against fish tank glass.

My eBay one has none of these flaws, but for 6 bucks, it's not bad a bad buy with Prime.

These tongs can't actually be stainless steel as stated and if they are, it is a very inferior grade. I purchased these specifically for my reef aquarium - Fluval is a company that caters to the aquarium industry so it's not like I'm using these tongs for a use outside of the norm. After only a month, they are full of rust, even after being washed with soap, rinsed well, and dried off. I would not buy them again and I recommend you don't either.

The material itself maybe strong and durable. Although I have started to notice some small rust or discoloration on the tip of the tongs. The real reason why I cannot give this product more than 1 star is because of the way the tip is designed. Tip is so bulky (same thickness as the whole body) that when you hold a plant with the tong and push in through the gravel or sand, it doesn't slide in but pushed out the substrate. So when you try to secure the plants it doesn't really do anything as it had already pushed out/away the substrate and the plant just floats right back out. I can only use this pick out dead leaves or fish from the tank.

I am going back to my needle point dental tools to do planting until I find a better option. :(

If you want just a long tool to pick out trash from the tank this may be fine but for any aquascapers this will NOT work.

These are sturdy tongs, but just that, tongs. Good for planting larger plants. Difficult with smaller fine plants because there is no feeling in them.

These tongs do exactly what they propose to do--they work well and are nice and long for reaching into our 10 gallon micro-reef aquarium. And yet they rusted in places very quickly after purchase, being plunged into salt water repeatedly. I didn't think that stainless steel was supposed to rust, so I was a bit disappointed. But they are still working just fine.

If you're looking for surgical precision, look somewhere else. When you pince the tip together you can see a gap near the tip of the prongs, this causes a bit weaker grip. The strongest grip right at the angle, its not the greatest grip but overall gets the job done... Kinda. I def prefer my hands for some uses
