Aquascaping Tools

Nothing can beat that feeling of starting a new aquascape. To get the best results, you’ll need a few tools to make the job easier when you’re planting, moving substrates, filling your tank, and doing maintenance.

Steel Planting Tongs

This is the tool you’ll probably be using the most. They’re extremely versatile, and can be used for everything, including planting, hardscaping, catching those snails, and more. Trust me, for this price you’ll be kicking your self that you don’t have a pair. They aren’t fancy, but they’re probably the most useful tool in this list.

While there are some tools that float, you’ll probably want the kind that are stainless steel to prevent rusting. Nothing worse than having rust all over your aquarium every time you try to clean it.
