Detailed Info

Aquarium Tongs will extend your reach so you can get into all those hard-to-reach areas and far corners of your tank without getting your sleeves wet or taking a swim! Using the tongs to move and place moving corals that can potentially sting or poke you will protect yourself and reduce stress upon the coral. The tips allow you to get a secure grip on rocks, corals, and frags so you won't have to worry about dropping them. The tongs are well-engineered to handle relatively heavy lifting Medium-sized rocks, decorations, or even larger coral colonies should not be a problem for the tongs.

Aquarium Tong Benefits

We said it before but that extra reach means your sleeves, hands, and arms will stay dry during setup and tank maintenance. They are hollow and will fill with water so just be sure to let the water drain out before removing the tongs from your tank and you can stay completely dry during tank maintenance. Bristleworms, Vermatid snails, and a variety of other critters in your reef tank can poke, cut or sting you....but not if you're using Aquarium Tongs to reach inside your tank! You know that one pesky snail or sea urchin that just won't stay upright or always makes its way into your pumps and/or filtration? The tongs can help you rescue these pesky inverts with ease. If you are not exactly sure what is growing on your rock, most often the best course of action is to remove it, and using the Tongs is your safest option. Reclaim those zoanthids, mushrooms, and small frags from the crown of your Urchin or Decorator Crab. Find corals lost in the sand bed or kicked around by aggressive fish. It's like having a robot hand!

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
