What are your favorite tools to use for pruning and maintening your plants? I'm probably really overthinking this but I don't want to dive in with my 2 year old's crayola scissors. My aquarium just got it's cherry plant popped so (I assume) it will be a while before it first needs to be trimmed but doesn't hurt to be prepared.

The only special tool I use is fluval's planting tongs. I use them mostly for planting but occasionally they are good for removing unwanted runners. I just use a regular pair of scissor for all of my trimming. I don't do a ton of pruning, but about once a month I trim things and pull out anything that has spread too far. If you are interested here is my tank. http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/f...planted-86439/

I just use cheap kitchen scissors from Walmart. I had a water wisteria that was overtaking my 100 gallon. I had to give it a trim every week or two and the scissors were perfect for that.

I use my fingers.

+1 to all. I use Petco planting tongs for manipulating stem plants in hard-to-reach spots, my fingers (preferred), and/or a sharp pair of chrome-plated scissors (rust free) if I'm doing a general trim.
