Modern Aquarium Curved Scissors are designed for pruning of carpeting plants and plants/leaves growing close to the ground, at a low angle, meaning your hand/palm holding the scissors can get relatively close to the bottom of the aquarium if needed.
These ultra-sharp scissors, along with its mechanism and all of its components are made of professional-grade stainless steel to esnure uncompromising durability and workmanship.
I have a 180 gallon tank, so to get to the bottom is a "stretch." And wet. These help a lot. Wish they came as 24 inches.
