Do you know of a good brand for some sharp/stay sharp scissors?
Petco grabbing tool seems to be +. Tweezers should be tweezers

Maintenance and scaping tools

The ADA and GLA ones are obviously very good quality, although you pay a hefty price. You can get cheap ones on eBay and Amazon although you should be careful as some of these will rust easily. I've actually had very good luck finding good quality SS tools on theplantedtank's classified section. Some of the power sellers there claim that their product is more or less the same as ADA's, just without the name brand engraved on it. Worth checking out for sure. I've also purchased a few Fluval brand things that have been solid for the price, which generally is pretty reasonable.

Edit: just realized you said scissors specifically. I'd likely not recommend fluval's scissors but their tweezers have been fine.
