    33" Tongs - Bargain Price

    My ever thrifty wife found this 33" EZ Reach Tongs at Dollarama on Innes Road for $1.00. She bought me three.



    They are plastic except for a small metal spring at the tongs. The metal is very small and I cannot see it affecting the tank, unless it is left in it. I do not expect it to last forever for use in a saltwater tank, but at this price, it is perfect.

    The Dollarama is in the plaza across from Future Shop on Innes.
    180g with 2 x 54g corner bowfront bookends. 220 FOWLR in the works, 75g sump, 75g fuge, 75g QT.
    Solaris I4 72", 2 x 150 HQI Outer Orbit Pendants, Reeflo Orca 250, Profilux controller, Tunze 6101's and 6055's, Deltec CA Rx, PM Kalk Mixer, PM SR45 reactors.

    Caution

    Hey everybody, Those tongs are nice and cheap but the can only be used a few times for sw tanks. I have been using them for a few months now, The shaft is metal and will rust quickly, I find they are good for a few days after being in sw. But they are a good cheap alternative and for a buck you can toss them out without worries. I usually buy them by the dozen.. just dont try to use them too many times....
