I wear gloves only when I am reaquascaping, etc...any time I have my hands in the tank for a long time. That's for the tank's safety, not mine.

I do not wear gloves either. Some people can be sensitive to toxins and a local reaction in the form of a rash can occur. It really depends how sensitive you are to them.

Interesting. I wonder why sites make a big deal about it. Maybe some ppl are extremly allergic to it
